pharmgeek: you have a new unit with the thermostat which ties the heat pump and AC units to the furnace. You also, as I recall, have two AC units. The Dometic thermostat is a (my opinion) diabolical device designed to frustrate any sane user.

My best guess is that a very careful reading of the manual on the thermostat may get you back in service if you can follow their not very clear instructions.

And Lew seems to be the master of the Dometic thermostat, he many have some ideas too.

Checked the fuses and breakers in the panel just under the fridge - all good

I did a reset per manual and no dice

Gave the "Intit" prompt just as manual said (and dealer showed me this as well)

Propane is getting to my burners FYI

You have propane in the tanks? Thermostat has power, is in the furnace mode, and the setting is higher than the surrounding air temp?

Yep

And to add now as I fiddle with it - I changed to heat pump and it kicked on....so thermostat for that seems to be working

Not sure if this matters - but opened outer panel on AS to furnace - red small blinky light - blinks once every three seconds - label there says this means "air flow/obstruction"

Hit battery disconnect button to off - then turned off breakers for 2 min (that buzzing from furnace stopped) - then put breakers back on - buzz back and still no blower from furnace

I ran the propane at the stovetop burners for a couple minutes

One LP tank is empty and in the truck going to get refill - but this other hooked in - it felt still quite heavy and burners work as above

Looked in intake outside and saw no obvious obstruction - looked inside and found some scraps of aluminum in there but hard to see much - no other issues

Going to fill both tanks tomorrow just to be sure it isn't a pressure thing

Also will disconnect battery and reconnect and retry...

You must have an Atwood furnace if you are getting that fault code. It usually indicates either an obstruction in the ducting (airflow), a fault in the air prover circuit (sail switch) or a problem with the limit switch.

If all of this checks out, you need a new igniter board. I have replaced 3 in the last week with this exact same fault indication. It was the Chinese made igniter board every time!

Regardless of the warranty on your furnace, I would replace the board with a Dinosaur Fan 50+ board. Made in the USA and has a 3 year warranty.

Should I call Atwood or airstream?

That seems consistent with what the Atwood manual said about the troubleshooting...

I cannot find any obvious obstruction unless something has sucked way back in and cannot be seen
