    Default good RV forum for technical questions?

    What's the best RV discussion board out there if I want to ask how to troubleshoot & fix an issue myself on my travel trailer (furnace died). Or should I just ask it here?

    Ask away.....Furnace issues are pretty easy to fix.

    Did you change your thermo coupler???? Generally the first thing to check.

    Nope, not yet. I'm a noob about RV's. I do most of my own automotive and home repairs but RV's are new to me; I couldn't even tell you where the furnace is.

    Anyway, it's a 2010 Keystone Springdale, 26 foot travel trailer. Bought in 2013, it's been great up until this past weekend. The furnace stopped working at the end of the camping trip. It would run the fan for like 20 seconds and then just give up. I thought maybe I was out of propane. But nope, I had lots.

    So, what would be the first things to check? Thermocoupler? Do they have igniters?

    thanks!

    Kyestonerv.org is also a good one.

    First locate the furnace. You may find it a little difficult to reach, especially if you tend to be of a larger frame type guy. Check the ignitor. Most new RV's no longer have standing pilot lites.

    Did you hear it lite at all? If you did then it is going to be the thermo coupler.

    If you could trouble shoot your home heating system the camper one is no different then a standard home forced air system. Just a little more compact.
