Question Furnace and Slide

I have a 2015 Georgetown XL 377TS. Recently tried to use the furnace in living area. It started but never got hot. The slide was in. Put the slide out and it worked fine. Is the flexible gas line being pinched or is this the way it is supposed to be?

My furnace works with the slides in or out. The furnace on our unit is not built into the slide, I don't know of any that are. We are in a 5th wheel.

I think your gas line is getting pinched. When the slide is in, have you tried the stove if it lights up properly (all three burners at same time)? If it does not then gas line is pinched.

Do the stove top burners ( I think they are also in the slide) ignite with the slide in? The furnace should work with the slide in or out. I believe there is a hose connected to a gas pipe that feeds both. That's the way it is in my GT378 only on the opposite side.

Thumbs up Thanks

Thanks for the replies. I did some looking underneath and yes the rubber line was in fact pinched. The stove test was a good idea, thanks. Problem solved without a trip to the dealer. Yahoooooo.
