New Atwood Furnace Issues

When we bought our 2015 Winnebago Ultralite we started having intermediate problems with the furnace fan. It would pulsate in the off position and just do some weird things. Every time it was doing this it was right after I washed it or it rained. Took it in for two issues four weeks ago. One, to see if they can solve this and two, the kitchen slide motor and module failed. Dealer told me that Atwood is aware of the problem and has a fix for their design problem. Water would get into the furnace and short out the circuit board module. So they replaced the cover with a better design and replaced the module. Dealer said that they have done this a bunch of times and have not seen any of these come back. Oh, and the slide module and motor was replaced as well.

Dealer seemed to know about the issue they are having with these so they opened the cover and verified the water getting to the module. Mine just happen to pulsate. Completely new cover and seal, new vent tube, module, plus there are more screws to secure the cover. So far works perfectly.
