Customer Question
I have an Atwood...

I have an Atwood propane furnace # 8535-RIV-DCLP L/P that seems to be leaking propane after it is off for a while

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the hoses? And what driving conditions do you most often encounter?

We leave it in a park and it is a 2007

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '07 RV?

It is a Keystone Challanger

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

All I have done is plug the gas line going to the furnace to see if it still leaked down. After doing that it held pressure in the lines. I had a tech come and he said it is just as easy to replace the furnace.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I guess not

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

That would be a pretty expensive "fix" for just a gas leak. Are you talking an LP smell or a carbon monoxide leak?

after it sets for a few days
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 5 years ago
just a faint LP smell? That shouldn't be too hard to track down and repair.

See the attached link for a copy of the Atwood Hydroflame Service Manual. Print this out so you have it. I think this may be as simple as just a loose connection on the LP line. That would be easy to fix. http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/hflamefurn04.pdf
