Customer Question

Just read "my RV furnace wont stay on. I've got the same problem but I just paid $1500 to install a new furnace. Propane is clean. Just had the pressure adjusted to 11 lbs. On the fuse panel, Furnace off, I have 13.4 volts, with the furnace on I have 13.06 volts. Any Ideas?
JA: Have you checked the manual yet? Most vehicles have two fuse panels. What is the model of your '11 RV?
Customer: I have a 1992 Pinnacle 340Q
JA: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have been hiring most of the work done. My mechanic says I need a new power converter but I can't find one for this RV.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No.

Wow! How much per hour do they charge there? I can't see this costing over $1,000, but that aside, does the furnace ignite and then go off after a few seconds? What is the make and model of this furnace?

Atwood model AFLD40111. The furnace retailed for $1500 I got it wholesale through a friend. and paid him $350 to install it.

My rv repairman is a friend and he is presently going to school to improve his skills. I sent him an email with the model number and he is going to call atwood to try to find out what is wrong.

I sell that furnace for $899 and the suggested retail is $950. Someone gave you some bad information. In any you want help with the diagnosis or are you letting your friend handle it for you?
