Finally got the furnace fixed. I was originally told that they (OW) ordered a control board for the furnace but I don't believe that was the case. After an hour of trying other stuff they found another defective furnace that they had removed from another popup and they took the control board off that unit and put it in mine. They told me that they tested it and all is working well now. Guess we will find out when we go out next time. Got a 2nd 20lb tank and hose and filter to get along with the Buddy Jr I just purchased so at least I will have some heat if the furnace leaves me sitting again.

Is there any reason you can't test it out BEFORE you go out next time?

Agreed... I would have been testing it at the dealer BEFORE I left after repair.

Maybe some driveway camping? Even if only temporarily removed from a storage unit. If it is gonna break then do it know.

Checked it out and it does, in fact, seem to work. Now the little lever on the thermostat is almost broken off. I can remove the cover to adjust the temp so I may have to figure a work around until I can find my super glue to glue that back on. Always something!

Same Problem on NTM 2014 FS 206 LTD

Lights would sometimes work, Heater would cycle once, and not re-light and cycle. The previous owner provide a small auto type battery, 450A, Hooked up a 15A battery charger to that battery no change.
Connected the 7 pin connector to my car, heater came back on and cycled, Light works every time.

Replaced the wimpy battery with a deep cycle/marine battery and was able to run for at least 6 hours, driveway camping and weather stopped the test.

Lesson do not use a wimpy auto battery.

If the probe is red hot ,but gas does stay lit sounds like a bad thermo coupler.
