I would work thru your Airstream dealer first, but don't expect them to replace your igniter board with anything other than the same POS Atwood board.

Hmm - dealer is 5 hour drive - wondering if Atwood may do it local under warranty?

Darn - I was hoping to not have a critical systems issue :/

Any authorized Atwood repair center should be able to handle a warranty claim for you. Check their web site for someone near you, or call them.

Sweet - I'll check into that

You think it's not something more simple that I can troubleshoot

Besides making sure my power source is good and I have propane - no obvious obstructions - seems like someone is going to have to look at it at this point

Refilled propane tanks just to be sure (needed to anyway) - no difference - took off positive battery terminal - then back on - nothing

Lewster is most likely correct but try this before you have to dig into your pockets:
Ensure your clock is set
Turn to furnace only
Set fan on high
Mess a bit with the plugs inside the furnace (May be corroded)
Worked for me once so you never know.
Caveat: I repair my television by hitting it on the side. Jim

RV antifreeze on all lines now (first time I did this ever) due to no furnace - Atwood authorized local repair

Spoke with a guy from dinosaur electronics - he talked me through my problem - fairly convinced the error is from the sail switch - he spoke of one if the 6 prongs from that connection on the board that if it had 12 v of power then it is your sail switch and said it would be the prong furthest from that black cylindrical foo dad soak coil thingie magiggie (my words)

I need to go home - tap at the sail switch while thermostat off - then back on and see if it fixes

I was out there with a basic electrical tester and two of the blue wires had power - one as I recall fits description of location and it matches the code so perhaps an easy solution - hold your breath
