Heat not working properly

I have a 1990 Kountry Star 5th wheel and when I turn the heat on, it comes on with the fan, a few minutes later the gas kicks on and about 30-40 seconds later the gas kicks off. The fan continues to run. Any suggestions?

there is a heat limit switch that tells the furnace when it gets too hot. That switch may be bad.

heater not working

The possabillities are almost endless. The unit has a flame rod. Sometimes just a good cleaning will fix it. Polish it with emery cloth. The board my be bad. The ignition wire may be bad. It also serves as the wire to for the flame rod. Sometimes the connection points get carrodid. Pull them off, and slip them back on.
