Suburban won't light

On our first trip of the year with our 83 excella and woke up cold this morning. Heater fan comes on for a couple of minutes then shuts down. Was working fine for the past 3 days. I replaced it less than a year ago.
Does anyone have an idea ? Very limited tools in bar harbor
Thanks

Do you have propane? Does the stove work?
Is the furnace a pilot light or electronic ignition model?

We have plenty of propane and it is electronic ignition. Like I said it is less than a year old. And the fan comes on so I know it has power

Duh. Sorry, I wasn't paying attention.


Did you try resetting it with the toggle switch accessible from the outside hatch? Turn it off and back on.


Open the hatch and listen carefully when someone turns up the thermostat. You should hear a click when the control board turns on the gas valve and you should smell propane in the exhaust. If you don't hear the click either the sail switch, the control board, or the gas valve is bad. If the gas valve is working, then the sail switch and at least part of the control board is working. With the blower running, listen for a repeated "pop" as the control board tries to light the gas with a spark.


I have a Duraflame, so I'm not familiar with Suburban but there is an online manual for the SP-30. Unfortunately there may not be much you can do without tools.
