Furnace issuses AGAIN

Ok have it figured out that switching regulator between tanks is bad. When I use left side furnace barely puts off heat but when I switch to rt side blows hot. I guess I'll add to warranty list when I drop off RV this week.

Just for fun, might want to swap the rubber lines from tank to regulator, (pigtail), and see if that is it. If it is, don't tell the dealer, and see what they find. Make sure you mark the lines on the connector with a sharpie, so you will know if he changed them. Just for sure, swap bottles side to side also, and mark them.

Sorry, I love working on campers and testing other dealer's service tech's......

For a little further explanation. I assume the regulator is good, since your furnace works on one tank, but not the other. From the regulator backwards, you have a rubber pug tail, going to each tank. You also have the tanks themselves. All of these must flow propane. I was asking you to switch a few items, and see if it is one of them, and not the regulator. Also mentioned don't tell the dealer, and see what they find wrong.

The rubber pig tails have check valves in them, and the tank has a valve, either of which could be bad. By swapping sides with each, you might find your problem.
