Winnebago Furnace Problem

I had a problem with my AC rooftop unit (1999 Winnebago Adventurer) - squeaking struggling to start-up. The fan would initially struggle to start and would eventually run smoothly. To "head off" a problem, I replaced the fan motor and the accompanying capacitor. After that the AC ran smoothly and functioned as it should. When cold weather arrived, the furnace ran smoothly for a couple of times, then stopped working one night. The next day, I turned off the furnace at the thermostat, and turned back on. It struggled to run for a short period and then shut down. It now doesn't work at all. I since learned that the AC unit and the furnace run off the same control board. To test this, I turned on the AC unit, and it now doesn't work. Does this mean that my problem with the furnace, and now the AC unit, is a faulty control board?

Is this the original OEM installed unit?

Clarification please: When you write "... the furnace ran smoothly", are you describing the propane-fired furnace?....or the heat-pump portion of the unit on your roof? If it is the latter, then perhaps you know that the roof unit (AC and heat-pump functions), then the two motors within that unit (the fan motor; the compressor motor) must both run to produce cooling or heating. If the compressor is not starting, well.....

What I mean when the furnace ran smoothly is this (smoothly is probably a misleading term) - The furnace was putting out heat in the RV, but there was a grinding type noise and the furnace seem to be struggling.

Here's my take.

You said, "yes" when I asked you if this is the original OEM unit. So that means this unit is nearly 20 years old. You have a AC/Heat Pump Combo Unit and now it sounds like both are not working. After 20 years this unit has served it's purpose and probably is in need of replacement. It has lasted way beyond it's years.

This is what I would do instead of trying to fix something this old.

Good luck.
