We are new to a 1988 coleman columbia. We want to be able to run the fridge off of the power. My brother in law had it working last year. We can't get it working this year. He used it before us. I was not able to get it working this year. So, many buttons and switches we don't understand. Can someone HELP?
The red switch is for 12Vdc. This will drain your battery fast so use with caution. The 12Vdc heater is either on or off by the switch, no thermostat control.
The green switch is 120Vac. The knob behind the green switch is the thermostat. Thermostat only works with the 120Vac heater.
The knob on the left is the propane control; High, medium, & low. The red button is the ignitor (same as a BBQ grill). To light, turn knob to High and press down on the knob. Wait several seconds, then press the ignitor several times. I always hear "poof" when the burner ignites.
