furnace problems

I have been having problems with my furnance in a 2015 Wildwood Heritage Glen. When it's cold and I run my furnace it will run most of the night but sometime during the night it will shut off. I try turning it off at the thermostat controls but it won't come on untill i rest the fuse for it. Doesn't make sense that I would have to reset the fuse in order to get it running again.... any ideas?

i have had similar issues. runs till the camper is up to temp, shuts off but never restarts. If i use the thermostat (turn off, wait 15 seconds turn back on) it will fire back up again but usually wont lite, it it does spark the gas it only lasts a short time. Of course each time i get home or to a dealer it works fine. currently its not working at home but cant get to dealer due to kids sports and what not.

hopefully one of uses gets this resolved and can help each other

Your system may be tripping the circuit for some reason. I would check all the connections, clean them and put a little smear of dielectric on the contacts.
Dirty or incomplete contacts including grounds build resistance/heat and trip circuit breaker (fuse). The breaker itself may be dirty or bad.
Be sure to disconnect all power sources before messing with wiring.
My brothers TT would just go dead every once in a while. He would shut everything down and start checking things. Finding no blown fuses or tripped breakers he would turn the power on and everthing would be fine. Turned out to be the positive side of 12v circuit was not crimped at the inverter.

Whatzleft & bpa098 -- Which thermostat do you have? Is it a Dometic digital?

i would have to look later but yes i believe so. I know it is digital and black. think there is two buttons, one scrolls from fan, cool, furnace and off. The other adjust fan from auto, high and low, or to adjust temps.

looks like this - javascriptopupWindow('http://www.adventurerv.net/dometic-single-zone-lcd-control-thermostat-3313192019-pi-32899.html')

i have been wondering if that could be the issue.

There have been several reports of the same issue, and it turns out they have the same thermostat. If I remember correctly, it's been either the thermostat itself or the control box in the A/C.

You can try initializing the thermostat and see if that helps. It's worked in a few cases. The process for initializing the thermostat is in the manual. If you don't have one, it's easy to find online.

ok I will try that, my thermostat is white but looks the same. I never blow a fuse but it seems the only way I can rest the unit so the fan will come on and it produce heat is to rest the fuse

Well got back up to the camper tonight and did the initialization so I will see how it does overnight as it's supposed to get down to about 40 degrees.

Something new I discovered tonight sitting in the living area we could hear something clicking from the air unit in the ceiling. Sounds like some kind of control trying to pick up in that unit. Thermostat is on furnace and the heat is blowing. Clicks a few times for a minute or so, then quits, maybe 20 minutes later clicks again. Really just seems to have a mind of its own, no real consistency of that makes sense...
Bad thermo maybe?

Will update this post in the morning as far as my original problem. Sheesh

We've heard about the 'clicking' in the A/C before. If I remember correctly its been a bad control board every time.
