Have a 22ft Honey motor home on a Ford bed. Anyway New to all of this so don't understand the LP system?? Once The LP is turned on do I need to or is there a polite I need to lite for the heater? Is there a separate polite for the Hot Water? Is there a LP meter to show full or empty? Any help would be appreciated. The unit ia a 1989
Propane tank has propane in it?
Propane tank valved in?
Battery(s) charged....good voltage?
Set thermostat to 'heat'......set to desired temp. and listen for furnace fan to come on. The fan needs to run a short time to purge chamber/make up sail switch then igniter spark should happen and gas valve opens......fire----then warm air.
Water heater......full of water?
Yes.....propane only----turn on switch for water heater. Igniter spark..gas valve opens......fire------hot water in about 20 minutes.
Unless it has a pilot.....then open outside compartment and lite pilot then turn gas on.
It is possible that your LP appliances have pilot lights or they could have DSI (direct spark ignition) which lights them electronically. IN an 89 model year I would suspect that DSI would have been an option that the original owner may or may not have chosen. Really no way for anyone to tell unless they happened to know model numbers and you gave them the numbers. If you look outside in the service panels for the water heater you may be able to tell. There should be lighting instructions on a tag inside the service panel if it has a pilot. Same thing for the furnace. No instructions, they are PROBABLY DSI models. If they have DSI then all you do is turn them on with a switch located inside the RV or from the thermostat (in the case of the furnace).

I'll just add that unless you are boondocking, which is parking with 'out' hookups, you will quickly find out that an electric ceramic heater will heat your MH up better than the furnace AND without all the on and off and noise from the furnace blower.
I heat a 31 ft with a ceramic heater, I never use the furnace.
A ceramic heater in your 22 ft will roast you out and you won't have to worry about running out of propane for the furnace which if you run it all night will most likely only last one day!
