Default rv furnace tech trick

Imagine this, last trip of the year, getting chilly at night (or if you're a fulltimer, first chilly night, want heat) you turn the thermostat on and up expecting the blower motor to start and heat to follow...

all you get is click...click...click...click...etc.

you call your local RV repair store to be told it's the board, and depending on the RV between $125-$175 you gotta be kidding !?

if you are handy with a soldering iron, look at the manufacturers info on the relay, that rectangular piece of black plastic soldered into the board, get on the net, find a supplier, and spend the $14.00 including shipping, the only piece that generally goes bad on the board, barring a huge power surge is the relay, I bought one for $2.42 and paid $9.95 shipping ?
but saved a bundle, laughing all the way to the bank

Thanks for that tip. I have had my board replaced and it was indeed in the $150 range. This is good to know. In the great scheme of things tho that is the only thing to go wacko in my 23' '96 Sunlline.....does a properly inflated Chinese tire coming off the rim at 60 mph count?
