Jayco 21C

Just bought a Jayco 21C to use when racing. Got it cheap but lots of work. Floor is soft everywhere, AC doesnt work, Fridge won't run on propane. Yippee..lots of work.
I've started pulling up the floor. Found that once its wet, it stays wet. I've got the front u shaped seating out and will be pulling the waterheater, and kitchen cabinets next. Lots of fun!
When I pull the Fridge, I'm going to test the thermocouple. I suspect its my issue, as the burner will light and run as long as I have the bypass pressed.
I think the AC issue is the fan motor. I spun it by hand (stick) and got it running, compressor seems to work too but I think I blew a fuse trying to get it going again. They're a nice little trailer. Hopfully I can get it back to life.

The fridge may need 12V to operate. Do you have a good battery installed?

yep, brand new battery. I had the genny running as well. Cools find on AC but not propane. With the button pressed the burner ignites and the sensor heats up and looks to be in the right position. I even get the light to turn on (on the fridge) but as soon as I release the bypass the flame goes out, the igniter keeps going but no gas. I tried it for an extended period (30 seconds) to see if the thermocouple was not heating up enough but same thing happened. I have to pull the fridge to get to the thermocouple and safety valve anyway so when I ready to pull that side of the trailer out I'll test the interrupter thermocuple and safety value to see where the issue is. Seems to be pointing to the thermocouple though.

Front seats, storage, hot water tank out. Started pulling up the floor.
yuck what a mess. The plywood was like paper. Made it easy to remove at least. Where the plywood underside is still dry its a pain to pull up.
I've got most of the screws out from the kitchen cabinet..there are a lot that are hidden. Everything is disconnected but there are still some hidden staples keeping it from coming out. I hope to have it out tonight, then I can start with the fridge and cabinet that the fridge is in. My plan is to replace the front half first, then work on the backside later on. I have another race weekend and use the trailer for that. Fingers crossed I can get the work done on time.
