Furnace gas valve bit the dust.

So I think this is the first "major" problem with my 2007 Safari SE.

My Atwood furnace wasn't staying on. I took it to the local general RV repair guy, who diagnosed the solenoid. I am expecting about $200 or so...

... could be more if my trailer gets stolen from his front lot. He looked at me as if I had three heads when I asked him to put the hitch lock on it. I don't think he knows how easy it is for Bambi to run off.

Had same problem. In our case i removed the wires at the control board one at a time and "crimped" the connector so they woud go on tighter.
It' been month's with no problem.
