Hello! I recently bought a 1985 Bigfoot
trailer - 17ft. I jumped on a convenient purchase and love trailers, but I promised my husband I'd be in charge of this one (he doesn't have time) and after a morning of reading all the manuals it came with and trying things out, I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed! I have a number of questions to start out.
-I don't seem to have a complete users manual. I have the brochure, but nothing that goes step by step and explains all the parts of the trailer and how things work. Does this exist? Following a different comment on this forum, I went over to the Bigfoot
Owners International and looked at the manuals they have online. I found a brochure similar to the one I already have for the Bigfoot
B17, but a more useful looking manual for 2500 series trailers. Is the 2500 series a totally different trailer? Similar?
-My trailer has been winterized and I know I need to flush out the system to get rid of the antifreeze. I found the very useful post about winterizing, but is there any good step by step instructions, preferably with pictures, of un-winterizing?
-I got the fridge
and stove working off the propane
(the easy things), but have not been able to get the furnace
going. I have the fan running, I'm following all the steps to light
the pilot, but all I get is cold air. I can't see if there is anyway to tell when the pilot is lit - there is no visible flame as far as I can see. Any suggestions or useful threads on troubleshooting the furnace
Many thanks for any advice!
