Without not knowing what you have there for a furnace I can't offer much. First thing to do is shut the power off for a short time and then turn it back on. If your lucky that reboot is all you need.

Inside the furnace cover there might be a printed trouble shooter that'll go through all the steps it in a complete cycle. Once you figurer out where in that cycle the furnace stops and shuts down or begins the cycle over you'll know which step it failed to do.

I only say this cuz we had a few frantic minutes when we tried to start the gas fridge on a trip this fall. Make sure there is gas and make sure the valve at the tank is not shut off, they shut them off when they fill them and sometimes forget to turn them on.

I have a Suburban furnace in my camper that has gone out a couple times over the years of using it. I believe each time is was a some sort of issue with the gas supply. First time something had to be cleaned out internal to the furnace, venturis or something like that. Second time it was the pressure regulator on the tank that wasn't allowing enough gas to go through.

I spent a few hours each time trying to fix them, but each time ended up calling a service tech from an area RV dealership to stop out. Couple hours of their time, $150 and we were in business again.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
