Default New to fun finder

New to this RV site. Bought 2011 245 xtra. Cannot get furnace to work. Not a real good electrician but have worked on a few furnaces. I understand the order of operations.
New thermostat no start.
Removed power, reconnected and got a fan on for about 3 min. But will not come back on. At a loss.
Suburban model NT20SE

Welcome to the forum. So the first thing I'm going to ask is did you turn on the gas (propane) at the tank? Next, did you set the thermostat to a temperature significantly higher than ambient temperature. Lastly, do you hear the electric ignition click on when it starts. It may tank a few times before propane gets to the burner.

Perhaps an issue with the limit switches ?

There is information to help diagnose at this site:

I am no expert, but it sounds like either the burner is not lighting, or the flame sensor is not functioning properly. I believe critters nesting inside the exterior vents can prevent normal operation also.

Default New to this group...

Hello- I am new to this group. I have a 2013 Fun Finder travel trailer. My shower pan broke and needs to be replaced. My local RV shop says Fun Finders have a unique shower pan. I have not been able to find one the right size. Ay suggestions?

Can it be repaired? If it is not completely shattered, there might be a way to salvage it. Let us know if you want to talk about that option.

I am told it is not repairable and needs to be replaced.

Is there an RV salvage yard near you?

Ours is a "wet bath".
Our shower pan broke this spring and I replaced it myself. Not easy but not impossible. I ended up with a much better, stronger shower bath.
Your unit may be different.
Mileage may vary, etc,etc.

When you replace or repair the pan, be sure to install some wood blocks under the middle of the pan, so that the plastic does not flex and break.
