Furnace problem

I have a 2000 flagstaff popup tent camper, and the furnace stoped working, goes through it's cycle of the blower starting, then the igniter fires but it won't lite. took it to the only dealer around , and $300.00 later, told me it could be my power converter . but the 12v lights in the ceiling works without any problem. the power converter will cost another $700.00 , but do anyone here know for sure that this is the problem.

Thanks to anyone who has any help

Put a jump on the battery from your car,if it fires you know its low voltage. I just had this problem and it was a weak converter. check ebay for converters

Find another dealer! I'll sell you three converters for 700.00 !

What's the make and model of your converter?

We have several trouble shooting guides in the files section depending on make and model.
