Does the control panel have a fuse or breaker for the heater?

What make is the furnace? Atwood?

Is the fan operating and blowing warm air through all the registers or do you just feel warm air as it's coming out via convection?

Since it appears that the gas is coming on and it's getting warm, my initial guess would be the fan isn't running properly which is causing the furnace to overheat and shut down.

I would also check the exhaust pipe. They have a sail switch which will activate and shut down if the pipe is partially blocked or parked too close to a wall or hedge.

My bet is on bugs or spider webs blocking the sail and or air flow.
This is pretty common.

The sail switch is a common part that goes out. If you have no blockage and good airflow, that is a good bet. Check my sig for some Atwood service manuals. I know yours is older, but prob sill relevant info.

Let us know what you find.
