we just got a used 2012 zinger. Can't figure out how to get furnace going. Thermostat will make fan kick on but no heat. We're total newbie's to this, our last RV was from 1978. Thanks!

Have you turned on your Lp gas tanks? Do the tanks have gas in them? Light a buner on the stove top to draw the gas into the piping and purge the air out of the system. Hope some of this helps.

OK, to get the furnace going: my experience with our 2011 Zinger was that the fan must be in the "auto" mode (not "low" or "high"). Then try the furnace again -- should kick on. (Of course, the previous suggestions regarding the propane flow are important, too!)

Has similar problems in my Zinger with the A/C. It was all in the thermostat setup and all operator error since I didn't read the book!!

If the previous posts don't solve the problem, I would check the sail switch in the fan housing. It must prove a certain amount of air flow to allow the ignition to proceed. They can get bent and not sense properly, hang up by rubbing the housing,or simply not make contact when required. After you start the fan, you should hear a click which would be the sail switch closing the ignition circuit and opening the gas valve.
Not familiar with your rig but with mine, I need to pull complete furnace out to open it up for repair.
