Thanks, Jim. I didn't realize the the blower is always running on 12V. Is there a fuse in or under the unit? Because none are blown on the breaker/fuse panel.

If the blower stopped when you lost shore power, you probably have a dead battery.

Pull it out, and charge it. The blower won't work if there is low 12 volt voltage.

You said "breakers" those are 110 volt . You may have a 110 volt breaker partially off , try flipping all of the 110 volt breakers hard to off then flip them back on . Just to be clear are you also checking your automobile type 12 volt fuses ? Jim

Yes, all fuses are good and I reset all breakers. Just took it back to the dealer and it looks like a failed blower motor. Thanks for all the tips!

Well, I just picked up the Roo from the dealer. During troubleshooting, they were not able to get the blower to work. So the removed the furnace and hooked it up to 12V and gas on the repair bench. After pulling it apart, they determined the sail switch was stuck. Switch was adjusted and several optests were satisfactory. Upon reinstallation, no further issues were found and the unit works properly. I will run it this weekend to make sure.

Thanks to all for sharing your insight and experience.
