The blower might be stuck or bad.
This has been discussed here frequently.
If you can manage to turn the blower you might find it moves off
the dead spot and runs.
If so it's a bad blower motor.
I would not suspect the board yet.
You're still in warranty! Call someone!
It was short cycling (running 3-5 minutes and shutting off, requiring a thermostat restart) 2 days before it just stopped totally and now just a single click at furnace when thermostat turned to heat. Since its only a single click I too suspect its probably the blower not activating to create air flow to close the sail switch, complete the circuit and prepare for ignition/combustion. Since I hear nothing but a single click, do not hear/feel the blower I suspect this is the issue. I believe if the blower were operational I should still feel some air coming from the inside vents as it cycles up. I think if the problem were later in the cycle I would hear 3 clicks as it attempts to ignite but its just IMO not getting that far into the process.
I bought an air compressor today and shot air through the intake/outflow vents @ 60 PSI. No changes in symptoms...still the just a single click. I could not hear blower turn when I dusted vents. I will attempt to remove door inside RV tonight and see if I can manually turn blower.
I went to Forest River website yesterday. It seems they put the burden on local RV dealers to determine if it is a defective part. I have appointment with service dept tomorrow for inspection/repair. I suppose the RV dealership has to call Forest River for preauthorization of warranty repairs.
Located door inside RV to inspect furnace...tight quarters and screwed into place. It looks like one side has hinges for opening the door; the other side is also screwed into place. I plan on putting a latch on one side so its not so much trouble in the future to get into the enclosure. Not sure why they didn't do that initially. Looks like its going to be a PIA to pull furnace from its cramped quarter.
BTW, I've read most of the other posts regarding this issue and took some advice from those in trying to trouble shoot this issue. Seems like there are a myriad of problems that occur with these units.
