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.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
