The flashing 3 times means AC heater failure, with this code it is going to be a problem with the AC heating element that goes into the flue canister OR the lower circuit board which is located outside under the access panel is the problem. IF you have a volt meter you can ohm out the AC heating element, click HERE and see page 18. IF the element test good I am afraid the circuit or power board outside will need to be replaced on this, pretty cut and dry on the troubleshooting.

IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Does there have to be propane in my tanks for it to work
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 4 years ago

For it to run on LP yes...... The code you are seeing is for the AC side. IF the board is bad then it will not work on LP. When you are plugged into power and it does not sense the AC power and you are in auto it should try to light off on LP. You can try the LP mode and see what happens, if you get the same fault then probably the board is bad but I would try and ohm out the AC element if you can.

Please let me know if you have more questions or concerns. IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page.
