Heating My Camper

I have a ‘23 Jayco whitehawk 29RL. The panel shows options for electric and gas heat. How the heck to I get it to turn on? In either case nothing happens.  All the fuses and breakers are good.

That's what I thought as well. But in the video at .54 seconds he says it is used to turn the furnace on. But it looks like to turn the furnace on you have to go int the AC control section which makes little sense. Then again we are talking an RV manufacturer. So maybe they got a ten cent per unit  savings from the app designer by grouping furnace under AC.

It doesn’t have an electric furnace. That’s for the water heater.

I looked at a few videos from Jayco. Do you have the Jay Command system with a touch screen to control things . Here's a Youtube video put out by Jayco of a step by step on how to control the heat and AC.

I’m about 99% sure, that option you see for electric/gas heat is for the water heater.

Further, if you flipped the switch “on” for electric with no water in the water heater tank, you probably burned out the element in the tank.

Website says it should have a 35 kBtu furnace.  usually there is a thermostat on the wall, just like in a home.  Put it on heat and adjust setpoint temp as needed.  You'll need propane tank valves open and make sure lines are purged of air first (get stove burners to ignite, turn burners on/ignite and off until they can all ignite).  Specs say there is an electric fireplace, maybe electric is for that?

Are you able to post a picture of the panel in question? If you have a picture on your computer you can simply right click and paste into a reply to display it.

My only experience with a gas/elec on a panel is for my water heater not furnace. So it would be interesting to see what you're dealing with.
