Precision Temp dies after about an hour

We are in Alberta and starting to pack up to start full timing Feb 1st. However my Precisiontemp twin temp system cuts out after about an hour of running. I shut the main 12v switch off for about 5 min and turn it back on and it fires up and runs good. Then after about an hour it dies again.

It seems like it might be a board and after given a chance to reset its ok again until it dies again an hour later. Lots of propane to the system and no apparent air locks.

Anyone have any ideas? I can take it to the dealer next week but given they are an hour away the more I can learn and fix on my own the better.

Thanks
Kelly

Possible some heater lines are restricted causing the unit to slowly overheat till the safety turns it off. After it cools you can restart it

Now it appears the pump kicks in but the boiler doesn't fire up. I spoke to the dealer and going to take it to them. I'm also going to spend time with there senior tech and learn some tips/tricks. We bought this last June and the predelivery was quite overwhelming given the number of new things for us to learn. Heck all the switches on the dashboard can be overwhelming when you first sit down. Now we are quite familiar with the coach I think it's time to learn more specific things.

Yep, I know what you mean about being overwelmed. I have been around cars and airplanes forever, and so many times I have to get in and operate a "new one to me". Whew !!!!

Try it one that the owner has made several "mods", and forgets to tell you about them.

Turns out it was the pump that was failing and wouldn't allow the burner to kick in. One more of those NEW RV things solved. Looking forward to the reliability of a used RV with new features. :-)

They have had some trouble with the blower pumps but are supposedly using a better one now

Apparently the pump is about 3 times the size now. They aren't doing a recall but replacing them as customers report the failure. In my mind that action alone gives them a failing grade. Love the hydronic heating though. :-)

I had so much trouble with mine and they replaced the whole unit. It now works flawlessly
