Furnace damage

HI! Is there any type of diverter available for the exterior Suburban heater vent?
On my moho the exhaust has buckled he aluminum skin and the rubber trim has melted. As always any input is appreciated. One more question: there is a red light to the right of the ignition key. What is it for comes on an goes off for no apparrent reason. I also have a rocker switch on the right side of the entry door that I cannot trace.

On my rig (1984 310 Limited) the red light near the key is a warning light for the levelers. Until I went through the wiring and the sensors on the levelers mine would go on and off at random.

To the right of my door (from the outside) I have the living room light switch, (hi, off, low), the porch light over the door (off, on), and the "scare" light switch (off, on).

I think I would check the regulator to ensure it is not supplying too much gas - I believe eleven inches of water column is appropriate for propane, too high of pressure will raise the exhaust stack temperature dramatically...
