This could be a few things, the thermostat, circuit board or possible the high limit switch. Since you have a thermostat I would go ahead and replace that and see if it corrects the issue. IF you still have the same problem then I would have the circuit board tested out, most RV shops have a special board tester and can tell if the board is bad. IF the board test good then possible the high limit is preventing the unit from working until it cools off. IF you can get me the make and model of the furnace I should be able to provide you a service manual on this.

Please let me know if you need more help, follow ups are included.

IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page..... Robert
