If there's a blocked outlet duct it'll do the same thing.

You could also have a bad high limit cutout that's tripping prematurely.

Checked all the ducting both inside and out, all clear.I'm wondering now if when I had the tank filled for the first time it wasn't purged properly.The sticker warning the propane tech to purge because it is a new tank has not been removed.The gas bar where I had it filled had a 18 yr old kid working, not sure he knew what he was doing.Anyway I hauled my trailer back down there yesterday, they told me they would purge and refill at no cost to me.But when I got there the manager informed me they could not purge my tank as it is an automotive style.(It's mounted underneath the floor unlike RV tanks on the tongue.)Anyone else think this could be my problem, maybe I'm getting air in the lines?

If you've hauled it to the dealer, let them figure it out!!

You can lite your stove burners and watch them.
If they remain lit and burn steady I don't think it's a purging
issue.

No stove in it, it's an enclosed snowmobile trailer.

It could still be a faulty regulator. The furnace is the number one user of propane by far. The stovetop burners will light long after there is not enough propane to fire anything else (though not well).

Think I might have a high pressure regulator (the red one) myself as I did not get a reliable switchover last night.

Your Surburban furnace can be looked at anywhere that is a Surburban repair facility.I have a V nose Snowmobile trailer also,26 ft. You have at least a small Battery to provide 12v to the saftey breakaway for the (Brakes)! This is not large enough for the Furnace&blower! The short run time is related to Low voltage to the blower?Thcooking stove eitherrowing a high temp shutdown. Your tow truck has to have the pin hooked up for the Remote batt,just because the trailer lights work does not supply voltage to the remote Batt. Ps,mine does not have a cooking stove either! I hope you ride a (POLARIS) Youroo!!

One way to tell if it's air is to either hook a DOT (BBQ) cylinder to the regulator and see if it works then or to hook a propane appliance to the outlet of the regulator and see if it works. Or you could do both and if neither works it's the regulator.
