    We have a new to us 2005 Jayco Jay series pop up. We cannot get the heater to work. It has an autopilot, and when we take the cover off the heater we can see it trying to light, the blower comes on, it tries for about 30 seconds, won't light and shuts itself down. The propane is on and working, the stove works great. The owners manual is no help, any ideas??
    Thanks!

    When my Yuma's furnace had that set of symptoms the problem was a faulty igniter.

    BTW: autopilot???

    Guess I should have said "auto ignition" [:D]

    Do you remember the make of the furnace? ie: Atwood or Suburban?

    It's an Atwood hydro flame.

    Okay, So you're saying that it shuts off after unsuccessfully trying to ignite. When that happens there should be a small led on the circuit board right behind the front cover that flashes a code. either one flash every three seconds, two flashes or three flashes. Take a look and see. that will narrow down the problem.

    We could see the light on the circuit board flashing 3 times every 3 seconds, after if failed to light. On the heater it says that code means "ignition lockout fault". Any ideas what that means?

    Ignition lockout basicaly means that the heater has sensed a problem with the ignition. a few things could cause this, even things as simple as a spider web or build up of dust. What I would do first is take the heater out and give it a good clean. failing that I agree with HVAC1877.

    See Page 30 for trouble shooting

    http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/hflamefurn04.pdf

    "If the flame is not
    sensed after approximately six seconds, the board
    will lock out (three try for ignition, one hour lockout
    and then three retry), shutting off power to the
    valve."

    "A HARD lockout requires reset of
    the thermostat or turning the power switch off then back on."
