    Need some help folks! I have a 78' Coleman Valley Forge. I was repairing some fittings on the furnace when the Pilot elbow broke it threads into the bottom of the furnace. I went to a cpl local RV shops with no luck.
    Any tips /help is appreciated!
    ...and no, throwing it away isn't an option It works like a hot damn

    Manual says it is ST-200 Model 4412 Coleman Recreational circulating air furnace/heater

    Yeah no luck went to 3 today and 2 RV parts stores. It is almost like a machine part from factory with a tube and orifice machined in 20191102_172218.jpg 20191102_172318.jpg

    Find a good welder to put it back together. If you've noticed, companies are carrying less and less spare parts. When I started, companies had exploded views of their products down to the nuts and bolts. You could find ratings for thermal fuses and motor frame / RPM / and current information. Later, companies moved spare parts from component to the assembly level. Companies are now stopping all spare parts, and just replacing the item under warranty. Out of warranty, you might as well buy a replacement unless you are good at reverse engineering.

    How old is this furnace? I wonder if it isn’t a rebranded Atwood or Suburban.

    If you have any decent auto parts stores/machine shops near you (probably not the big name chain stores), theres a chance you'll find some help recreating that there.
