for the experts.........

could moisture be in the gas line that either blocks the gas flow or plugs the line when it's not level? maybe blowing out the line with air might help?

I reread the comments on the furnace having to be level left to right in order to work. While I still question this I can see a condition that might cause this problem. Quite unlikely but worth a test.

The sail switch. If there is excessive end play in the fan shaft that may keep the sail switch from making. A way to test this is to have the furnace running and jack the trailer up on the side in question. If the furnace stops as you lift the trailer this could indicate the sail switch is opening.

We are leaving in two weeks for the Ptown Rally so I will let you know after we get there if the Voodoo hex is back or not.
I want to thank you, the members, and this form for the great help I receive. If it wasn't for this form, I think I wouldn't still love VooDoo Doll.
Glad to hear the fix worked out. Like I said before, ever since we have made sure that the furnace is level we have not encountered any more problems. Hopefully you will have the same experience.

Have a safe trip!

Happy Trailering !
