Question The Winchester

Hey-we have a 2000 country coach with a hurricane diesel furnace and have a problem with *flame out*-called Jim Rixen (rep) he says replace the fuel line from the tank to the heater. Any one out there that has had this experience please respond. Thanks for your help.

We are glad you joined us. There is a wealth of information available here on iRV2 just by asking. Sorry I can't help you but I would suggest you go down to The Owner's Corner Forums. The 2nd one down is the Country Coach Forum. I believe if you start a thread there on your furnace problem you will likely get more responses than here.

Hi Bill! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us! Sorry I can't answer your question. You might want to go to "RV Forums", then to "Systems and appliances" to see if you can find an answer there. You're not allowed to post the same question in two different areas of the forum, but you can ask a Moderator to move it to one of the other areas.
Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

It is kinda easy to replace the fuel line but time consuming. You have to lower some of the overhead panels in the storage bays so you can fish the new line through. The hardest part is getting the new line on the fuel tank. There isn't enough room to attach it unless you drop the tank about 6". You will also have to work leaning in and over the propane tank.

Before I did that, I would make sure that the nozzle is in good condition and even replace it to make sure. A bad fuel pump can also cause a flame out. A dirty "eye" can cause a flame out. The eye is the thing that sees a flame and keeps the pump running. I would open the petcock on the top of the unit and start the heater. Sometimes, if the heater hasn't been used in awhile, air will get in the line and that will cause a flameout.

If you have the fancy air cleaner on top of the unit, get rid of it. It was installed by CC as a look good thing and is not needed. The real air filter is on the inside.

All of the parts are serviceable by you and the unit is easy to take apart.

My heater was flaming out and I replaced the pump, cleaned the eye, replaced the nozzle and then replaced the fuel line to no avail. Finally replaced the pump and all works fine. Found out I got a bad "new" pump.

I'm not bad mouthing Jim in any way. He has always helped me out troubleshooting a problem.

On edit, one more thing. Make sure you get the supply line as there are two lines, one for supply and one for return.
