Reace wasn't happy with the mobile repair guy I got.

Do you have to pull/move the furnace to replace the sail switch? Thanks, Scott

Update: After returning everything to normal, I tried one final attempt to run the furnace. It actually started and I ran it for about 45 minutes. The longest it has ever run. I also learned that the regulator only makes a squealing sound when running off the drivers side bottle. No noise at all from the passenger side. I still believe there is some sort of issue, but it was good to get it running and have it stay running.

Scott, I have typed this a couple times but it boils down to faulty memory on my part. The switch is basically right under the squirrel cage. Once you have full acess to the 'cage you are home free.

Reace or maybe Rae would know better. This on the 2014 version in dinette.

I had a similar problem which turned out to be the sail switch. The furnace in my Escape 21 happens to use a sail switch that is different from the one most RV shops carry. Be sure to tell the shop that the furnace is under warranty. There is a thread about this, including a photo of the offending sail switch, elsewhere on this forum.
