Looks like by refilling propane tank I lost furnace. Actually turned off and removed both as I did so with wrong one first.

Water heater and stove work fine.

Fan goes on for ~15 seconds, then off.

Looks like an Atwood and instructions mention an led light but I can't find any light..... Mention of sail switches as well but I'll be danged if I can find those...

Do I have to remove the access panel out side? The 4 screws to find this?

I'm convinced operator error of some sort as it had been working fine the past week.

Thanks!

Warren

Hmmm...

Now what...

Get it fixed under warranty?

As far as I can tell nothing I can do about this.....

Been investigating and too many variables and no way to know what the correct parts are or how to replace exactly. I don't have time to rip out a furnace and it would probably void the warranty....

Does warranty service need me to deliver the AS to a dealer for repairs?

I wont be able to do that for 6 weeks and then not be able to leave it for an extended time.....

I'll have to find put what an electric heater uses. .19 a kwh here....

Merry Christmas!

Right!

But I'm ensconced at a gem and mineral show in Quartzsite and not an easy in and out not to mention is kind of my job to be here the next 6 weeks....

I doubt AS does "house" calls...

I remember reading about another member here having a Mobile Rv tech replace his circuit board for the hot water heater at a campground. I believe it was covered under warranty, he may have used the free service you get when you buy the airstream, is it coach net ? Worth a shot.

If it was me I’d call airstream and get advice then maybe try the mobile thing.

I worked as a maintenance man for years while going through school. We always believed in starting with the simplest solution first. The simplest solution is that it is your LP gas may not be getting to the furnace since that when the problem started. I know that sometimes the refrigerator doesn’t work well when we go from electric to LP. Takes a few times to get it started from time to time. And our other LP items worked. I remember having a problem and thinking we had to get a service tech out. Just couldn’t get the LP to work. But it righted itself after awhile. Apparently it was just air in the line that needed to get worked through.

Anyway I’d call the AS service line. Hope it’s simple for you. And I think it will be based upon when the problem started.

On our last camping trip we couldn’t get one of the HPs to work. Couldn’t figure out why. Reset thermostat etc. Well I was outside and while the camper next to me were talking he noticed that an EMS reading on my surge protector said no voltage on one circuit. I was thinking something was wrong with the HP. So I reset the circuit breaker, and the EMS reading was normal. Everything worked fine then. It was the simple thing. I just never thought of starting there since I had power to the rest of the stuff. But I didn’t realize that the 50 AMP plug worked that way. I learned something that day.

I'll try tomorrow...

Holiday was a long week end and AS closed. Hopefully opened tomorrow to direct me...

Now it appears we have some 20's weather on the way... Will my 1500W space heater keep the water lines from freezing? Any other freeze precautions?

Thanks!

Merry Christmas!

If you are hooked up to on site utilities you can keep a trickle of cold water running at the faucets. Running water doesn’t freeze very easily. You would probably have to keep track of your grey water tank closely and empty it more often. Then just run the hot water a bit every so often. Just a thought. Not sure how that would work. Maybe someone else can chime in.

One thing I thought of is your outside hose. You may want to get a hose that is heated to keep it from freezing. That’s probably the first place things will freeze. I know last Spring when we were camping and it got cold our hose froze up because I forgot about unhooking it. From then on before bed we always unhooked it. But they do make hoses that have electric coils through them. Not cheap though.

I had the same/similar problem. Turned out to to a bad sail switch. When the furnace starts, it first runs the blower, and the sail switch engages (closes) if there is sufficient flow in the burner tube. If not, the fan will shut off and blink the LED once every three seconds. The temperature limit switch and sail switch are in series, so there is only one code.

The sail switch removes easily with two screws (its a large white micro-switch on the blower cage) and you can test it outside the furnace. The aluminum "sail" attached to the switch can be bent and re-positioned so it can capture more flow, or the switch can be replaced.

Also check for obstructions in the burner tube. Spiders, grass, etc can be sucked up in there and limit flow. Remove the heat exhaust tube and blow it out with compressed air, see what blows out. Maybe Elvis. The water heater has a similar failure mode.

Check that the electrical terminals are tight on everything you can find. Quality is not job one at AS, and loose terminals can cause untold problems.

Hopefully you will find the problem. Your wiring there looks like Airstream gave you a Christmas decoration.

Refilled propane; furnace won't fire up

One time, heading north in early Feb, our furnace quit working in -30F temperatures in Harrisburg, PA, even though I had refilled my tanks. But, I had refilled them in Florida, without any anti-freeze (methanol) in the propane, so I found out later. Apparently, the regulator basically froze up. It let a wee bit of propane through, but not enough volume to keep the furnace running. Initially, the furnace had fired up fine, but then quit after awhile. Come spring, it worked just fine up north.

Thanks,

I'm guessing this may be it but I'll be darned if I can find easy access to any switches!

Do I get at them from the inside?

Everything seems to demand a high degree of dismantling to get at the switches. I don't even see them!

Thanks,

W
