Question Electrical or Furnace issue?

Recently we have discovered yet another strange issue with our 2016 Bounder 35K. When the furnace kicks on, the lights in the bathrooms go out and the steps retract.
The light in the rear bath or the 1/2 bath are random, but the steps retract everytime the furnace kicks in.

Any ideas on where to begin to troubleshoot this?!

Electrical ghosts are usually ground related.

Had similar issues with mine. The problem is voltage from the furnace ignitor feeding back into the 12 volt system. I'd call Atwood, they seem to be aware of the issue.

I am not sure if it's still under warranty, but if, as you say they are aware, will they pay for the repair? Or is there an easy fix?

I don't know that it's an easy fix. They put a brand new furnace in my rig but I still have a problem. I think Fleetwood might have done some wiring modifications as well. You'd have to ask Atwood or Fleetwood.

I would be looking for a grounding point that the affected items share.

Sort of like when you loose a trailer ground and all the lights flash.

Is that furnace mounted in a slide out ? Make sure furnace has good ground as stated and if on slide out add ground from chassis to slide ground see if it helps , if it does add enough slop to move with extension retraction.

Fleetwood is known for having electrical ghosts because of the way the wire their coaches and connecting boxes. Sometimes its shielding, and bleed through and sometimes its grounding (all coaches) and they all can be hard to find. I ve had luck with filters, shielding and adding diodes to stop back feeding. Gets complicated.. clean all connections first. , as. Others have said Good luck
