    Furnace Heater Trouble Shooting- Help Needed

    Not sure about a window. Do not see any? A few times i was able to stick a BBQ long lighter into exhaust and light it that way. After three or four successful attempts, i have not been able to get it to fire again. Is there a way to access the spark gap while furnace is still installed in rv?

    NEED a Solid Red Lense/Cover for Tail/Brake Light

    Thank you Linda!
  3. For an oem 1986 Sunrader tail light assembly. Only missing the red translucent cover for Brake Light. Anyone have one of these sitting aside? Let me know what you need to get for it?

    Okay... This is where i am at. How to access the "sparking points" to clean, align, et cetera? Detailed step by step will be helpful. Model 8516
  5. A beautiful, west coast born and bred, 21foot custom Sunrader Classic. -210RD- Rear Dinette -22REC - Fuel Injected -many hours, sweat, and tears-much cold cash and warm wax over three years has gone into this here Sunrader. -this was true even before the newly remanufactured engine was installed last September, complete with a three year unlimited mileage warranty... -including many new parts to compliment the fresh engine. Well over 4k under the hood in 2018. -original odometer currently reads 47500. The original engine was probable repairable, maybe a new head, yet... as i was in Texas, and without a shop. -can you believe that a new EGR is well over a hundred dollars for the part alone! -new-ish tires (7k+ on them) from Les Schwabb -new water lines throughout (pex). -new water pump, accumulator, water heater, and out door shower. -new led running lights. -Fantastic Fan, and second vent. -awning in excellent condition. -custom hitch w/ reinforced frame. -rear suspension air bags. -fresh bearings and races in rear. -bamboo countertop, desktop, and surface above fridge. -original fridge works well. -1/2inch plywood flooring added. -luxury vinyl planking. -fresh paint. -custom back benches w/ bamboo writing desk. -some new ductwork. -new water ports. -new copper propane lines inside. -100watt solar (ready for more) -brand new, unused sewer dump hose line. -original tape cassette (will include a modern c.d. 0layer you can install) -now vinyl strip that covers the screws holding clam shell together. -more importantly, every screw beneath that vinyl strip has been replaced with stainless steel screws and sealed in. -beautiful rig. -when i get a bit further along with the finish work inside the coach, I will get some pics together -along with a far more detailed list of the work i have done, and all the new stuff that has been installed. i have owned this for about three years... maybe a bit more. And the vast majority of that time, i have been working in it. Improving it. I did take it to Texas and back. New engine was installed in Texas. After a brief break in period and process, I hit the road and drove back here to Oregon. A few 100 mile trips before, and a few since. This Sunrader Classic 21footer also has the original factory installed storage box accessory option. **NOTE** This Sunrader is NOT currently for sale. Although... with the right offer... i may be willing to entertain a discussion. Otherwise... sale coming soon! This is merely a preemptive courtesy to the members of this group, for which i have a particular appreciation. Peace.

    No. It does not light. When it does not light. I hear the ticking, so, i assume it is sparkng. I smell the gas for a moment. Prior to it failing to ignite at all, for about a weeks I did begin to hear that ticking ongoing... even while furnace was working just fine? Sensor? Spark gap? Control Board? my shoestrings are torn...

    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.
