No Andy is the parts manager. He is a very good person to know. Not only because of his knowledge and ability to get you your parts when you need them fast but also because he is genuinely a nice person and good friend.

Are you referring to.the furnaces or the heater pump on the front ac unit. Judging by your description it sounds like the heat pump. Heat pumps work well as long as the temperature differential inside vs outside is quite low.

I use the two furnaces with the fans on auto

If you're asking me, I am talking about the furnace, not the heart pump. I only have one furnace in my rig and it is set on auto. I have not graduated in the use of the heart pump yet

A heat pump works well in +40 weather. Around freezing or below it is furnace weather. Another thing to remember is a heat pump doesn't supply any heat to the underbelly.

Now tonight it just blows cold again for a few minutes and then shuts off. I went outside to examine the exhaust and I can hear the igniter trying to light periodically, not constant. I have read a bunch of forums about heaters and only one pertaining to berks. Most of the others can evidently get access to theirs, but mine is in the corner behind the fireplace, so I can't see where the board or igniter are. Any thoughts?

If you have propane , the units fan comes on for a bit and then shuts off never getting hot . the furnace is going through a purge mode .before the fan shuts off the furnace should lite , but it does not it just shuts down . so 1. you are having problems with your sail switch . 2 it lites briefly and then shuts off because the flame sensor is bad or just dirty . if it's just dirty which is common a light cleaning with some very fine emery will do the trick don't over do it . 3 .your pc board is bad or igniter is bad and not sending spark when the purge mode is done and gas valve in energized if flame is not sensed it shuts down .
