Hi, Mark. Welcome to JustAnswer.

Sorry I did not reply sooner. I noticed your question as soon as I logged in.

Most times just a good cleaning resolves these problems , but if that didnt work additional diagnostics will be needed.

Below is the troubleshooting flow chart for the F error code. This should point you to the failed component.

You can get parts from most any RV dealerrship.
