We will be doing our first "dry camping" in a few days and it will probably be the first time we will need our heater. I've been going over the instructions for the heater and am a little confused by what I'm reading (so, what's new ... ). From the manual:
3. Turn "OFF" all electric power to the appliance
5. Open the control access panel
6. Turn "OFF" switch (circuit breaker or manual switch) to the "OFF" position
Then we get to:
9. Turn the valve power switch to the "ON" position
10. Close access panel
11. Turn all electric power to the appliance "ON"
Right now, the switch behind the furnace panel says "RESET / OFF" (no "ON" in sight...) and it's in the "RESET" position. What other electric power are they referring to -- the digital thermostat (which does have an "ON/OFF" mode) or the circuit breaker (which would be the entire trailer)? Also, should we be turning "OFF" the furnace (via the access door) when we're moving the trailer? I'm thinking it's not a problem as it's evidently been in the "RESET" position since we picked up the trailer in Chilliwack ...
And, speaking of circuit breakers, we read (somewhere) that when you plug your electric cord into a campground receptacle, the main circuit breaker should be "OFF" ... and then you do the same when you unplug. This is SOP ... right?
Sorry, this upcoming trip has me a little unnerved ...
