Before you pull the furnace, pull the fuse for the furnace wait a minute and reinstall and try again. The furnace has a lockout feature if it failed to ignite several times. It will not start. This will reset it.

I'm confused as to why you'd need to remove the heater duct outlet trim/cover to remove the furnace. You should be removing the duct from the furnace not the duct and outlet from the walls?

As for the heater itself, have you checked for 12v volts at the furnace?
Do you own a multimeter and know how to use it?

Removing heater vent covers

Thanks 5picker. The clamps that hold ducts on have the screws facing outside of trailer. Must have been installed before outside walls constructed. By removing vent covers, I was hoping to obtain enough wiggle room to access screws to loosen clamps. Yes, I have multimeter and will check for voltage. On the road to TX now. Running the a/c as I type. Showed heater installed to mechanic before we left and he thinks probably clogged gas line at valve. Heater was working fine back in April,but need to know for sure before removing. Thanks again. Will update when problem solved.

Thanks Biker, Witch Doctor, and Mr. Dan for your comments. This is a Suburban SF30Q unit. Can only be repaired upon removal. No outside access panel.

Thanks Pdqparalegal1. Yes, vent cover would normally not need to come off. If you see my answer above you will see why I was trying to remove them. I might try to use a flat screwdriver and see if I can flip the clamps off the heater outlets before messing with vent covers. However, to be honest, I now really want to know how they come apart. Just curious. Thanks again to everyone's help. Most appreciated.
