Furnace Pinnacle 2017 FBTS

Hello everybody, this is my first post here.
If any of you are staying at the Greeley RV Park in Colorado.. hello neighbor!

ah yes, the furnace. Something always goes wrong at like 2-3 AM and never on a nice sunny day. So the cold is setting in, we start up the furnace and mmmmm it takes the season chill off. We wake up at the predestined problem time "ahhh must be out of propane, I'll have to get out of bed and switch bottles." Nothing. What? I check the thermo again, it clicks and nothing. No fan to even start the process.
We call Colorado Custom RV Repair, they do warranty work. I get home from work and my wife says "they fixed it honey, it was a bad ground wire." Didn't need to use it much after that because it warmed up. A couple weeks later, it goes out again. We end up heating with portable electrics.
They come out again, pull the furnace, check the board again, it won't fix this time, so they replace it with a new one and it works.... cool.
That was last Thursday. Well here it is Sunday... sometime in that inconvenient hour while we are sleeping, it goes out again.

Does this make sense to anybody? I'll have to call them out again.

Sounds like a wonderful campfire story, thanks...

I have one about a burned bearing, lost wheel along the interstate at 11pm. Hammering the race off the spindle, castle nut cross threaded, replacing the entire axel the next week...…

Love them campfire stories..

Is it tripping the breaker on the furnace? If so the breaker switch on the furnace may need to be changed.

Not tripping the breaker, there is no breaker, it's a 20amp fuse and the fuse is always ok. It's frying circuit boards.

If its an Atwood the “breaker” is on the top of the furnace. It is also the on/off switch.
Yes there is a fuse in the fuse panel...that’s not it, that’s just the fuse.
