Had that problem in my Shasta Travel Trailer, Ducts poorly routed, flex duct crushed, too sharp of bends etc. I jerked all of the Flex Duct out except for the 2" under the floor to the bathroom. Replaced it all with 4" round Metal Ducting and fittings with fiberglass insulation. Furnace quit cycling on the over Temp Safety, the cabinets around the furnace cooled down so the food stored under there was not getting way above the ambient temp in the living quarters. I would do it again if I ever purchased another unit with the Flex Duct in it. Motor Home already has metal ducting so I have no issues with that furnace.

I also fixed a couple duct issues, one was kinked and one was way too long.
There you go! Bet if the limiting doesn't stop completely it's happening much less frequently...

Well, the fan motor started squeeling yesterday. I called ppl in Texas this morning and they have an Atwood furnace on sale for 490 bucks. I'm having it overnighted and it will be here tomorrow, so at least I can have some peace of mind with a fresh new furnace.
