The furnace in my 2005 Keystone Sprinter runs fine for a period of time then rumbles and pops for a few seconds, returns to running fine. This happens intermitently until trailer reaches temperture. I don't really want tow to my dealer as they are about 130 miles from where it is parked. No cobwebs or bee's nests that I notice. Any ideas? Thanks

Could be something as simple as the ductwork expanding with the heat. My furnace does this when it is really cold out. At the same time, I notice that the fan is also hitting on something. It only seems to happen when it is really cold out.

... 1st things First.... WELCOME!!!

Are we talking popping...or perhaps the sound of the squirle cage fan rumbling.... If its the rumbling... several possibilities, in most cases for new coaches, there is most likely a restriction of some sort in the duct work. I have seen where the ducting has been in-advertanly crushed ... once re-expanded things work better, a few times I have seen where The heater is mis-matched for the size of the coach. Popping noises are just as Randy stated expanding and contracting of aluminum ducting against wood and Steel Joists.

Thanks for the ideas but it does not sound metalic. It sounds more like the burner is misfiring. Almost like the pop that comes when you turn off a gas grill only it last a little longer then returns to normal. Thanks anyway. oiljockey

Then it could be a dirty burner or some sort of obstruction in the burner that is disrupting the gas/air flow.

Any new propane tank needs to be purged. Mine did the same thing until I took it to be purged. Since the dealer had them filled I b elive they tooa shortcut. Can you believe that?

I had the same thing with the first two tanks from the dealer. It cleared up after a refill. I actually a flame shoot out the exhaust one time or I saw it that time.

If the tanks were not purged the problem would extend to the stove burners and hot water heater - do they? If it is only the furnace that is the problem then I would think the problem is there and not in the tanks.
