X19 furnace issue

Just got back from a weekend south of Ithica (it was cold) and the furnace was acting strange. It would run for what seemed like forever, and the burner would cycle on and off (15-20 sec on and 10-15 sec off) every time it would re-fire, sounded like a pop from outside the camper......and as I said, it would run for a good 15-20 minutes before shutting off. I don't recall it running like that the last time (then it would just stay fired and run until the temp desired was reached and then cycle off). This doesn't seen normal.

It does not sound normal. Was it cycling off and on for 15 to 20 seconds or minutes?

Were you on shore power or battery power? if you were on battery power the batteries have to be strong enough to make the fan spin at a preset speed before it will light

The burner itself is what would fire for 15-20 sec on and 10-15 sec off. The blower fan would run for at least 15 min. Every time the burner would fire you'd hear a "pop". very bizarre. it's going in for service work this week any way.

And I was plugged in to shore power too.
