    Furnace Heater Trouble Shooting- Help Needed

    It fired up this evening. Once. And then not again. The board you think? Or the positiion of the ignitor dilly-bobber?

    Furnace Heater Trouble Shooting- Help Needed

    In my situation, any squeal is nominal, and seems to be more prevalent with a depleted battery. Maybe a good cleaning. As far as the furnace not firing... well, it did tonight. It isn't going right now. Over the last two or so days, I have tried it in different situations trying t g it to light. This evening, it fired up and i was not plugged in to shore power. First time in two or three days. not sure if it will fire up again after it turns off, we will see. Any ideas? Ignitor positioing maybe? Can some one offer a link to a replacement control module, preferably the upgraded one?

    How to access the " spark gap". To check if it is functioning properly. Is this what the "view port" is for?

    Got any links for motor? And for an upgrade board? Preferably Amazon for ease of purchase, and delivery.

    No, not much of a Russian here. Personally, i enjoy going a bit slower. Taking my time. Even when i am a running bee-hind. and no. Never been to China. Earthling maybe. God's country. Currently living in the P.N.W. Frost last night. Which is more cost/time effective... a Mister heater, or fixing this?

    One reference I found did mention one possible cause being bad high tension wire, or loose connection. I hear it ticking(presumably igniter trying to light a fire). And as I mentioned before, a few days prior to furnace going on the fritz, i did noticed that I heard the same tick tick ticking even even after furnace flame was lit. Related? How much is a compatible, upgrade board?

    Tried with engine off and adequate batteries power. Tried with engine on and idling. Tried with engine on and driving. Tried while connected to shore power. Although the fan occasionally squeeks a bit, it is not impeded by lint, dust, dirt, or other debris. That i can see.

    Likewise. Not sure how that happened. Never saw it before. Thought it weird. Hopefully, that istaken care of. Let me know if it is not. ...and pardon. If it was, indeed, my doing.

    Experiencing similar issues. Symptoms so far are as follows: blows cold air fairly well (the sail likely works) . I hear the tick tick tick tick of (presumably) the igniter trying to fire the propane that i do smell when troubleshooting (so valve is opening). A couple or three days before heater went out, I noticed what sounded like the aforementioned tick tick tick tick tick that seem to continue even after fire was lit. This is probably relevant to the trouble shooting process. Any ideas? Temps are dropping a bit in this solstice night. Many thanks.
  11. A little surprised to find nothing in this discussion forum concerning a woodstove in one of these little land yachts. What? No one hear replaced their cookstove with a little wooden cook stove? Found not a word of discussion on this topic.

    Reckon i do not want to part with it for less than 4, as it adds to resale, and is also quite useful.

    Reinforcing hitch and frame to confidently carry a 200lb scooter on the back of 21' Sunrader. The distance the receiver must jut out in order to clear the storage box does lend quite a bit of leverage being applied to hitch by bouncing scooter and carrier. Considering eliminating rear bumper, reinforcing hitch similar to what another member successfully did, and possibly to raise receiver 3" to 7". That's the idea anyway.
  15. Considering letting go of my storage pod in order to redesign back bumper and hitch. Willing to accept bids starting at 400 plus shipping costs. Thoughts?
