furnace not staying lit

Well we camped about 50 miles from home and it rained again. Everything was dry inside the bunks this time but the furnace is acting up again.

The fan comes on, ignitor sparks, and a good flame starts for 5-6 seconds and then turns off. It does this 3 times and shuts down for safety. I am thinking its the cavagan dual regulator at the tanks acting up by not providing a steady high pressure flow. All 3 burners on the stove work and hot water heater work.

Can anyone confirm that if you disconnect the tanks does the green indicator switch to red? Mine seems locked up.

Any tips. I can take it in again but its an hour away. I was thinking of just buying a new regulator locally to try eliminate that from the issue. Thanks.

Does anything else act up? Stove? Outside grill? Hot water heater?

Hi. Everything else works good. Hot water through the entire weekend. All 3 burners light fine on the stove. I think those are low pressure and not as sensitive as the furnace burner. I will try a new regulator tomorrow if I can find one.

Talking Ready to Roo!!

Very excited for our first trip in our Roo!


Need help in the following areas:
1.) Looking for suggestions on a generator that can power the AC - I believe it is a 15K not the 13.5K I am seeing posts on.
2.) Shelving add-ins - pantry shelves seem like they need support, anyone with issues? Don't want the shelves to collapse.
3.) Solar hook up - has anyone had any experience with this feature on the Roo's?


Thanks in advance!!

The 15k a/c is an option, not standard. And I seem to remember that it's no longer an option for the Roo/Shamrock hybrids.

So, for a 13.5 a/c, minimum would be a Yamaha 2400w inverter generator.
I recommend the Champion 3100w inverter generator. IMHO, the best "bang for your buck" inverter generator.

Agree. The Yamaha would be great or the Honda if you prefer. Pick one that is local in case you need it serviced.

An update on the furnace issue as well. I took it back and they replaced the furnace control board under warranty. The odd thing is that it was bench tested and it passed but suburban who makes it said the board could still be faulty. So far so good after a few nights of camping.
