Wagon Master Furnace issues

I have a Wagon master furnace model 5000-f. The unit used to work great but now I am running into the issue of when I transfer from pilot light to ON it will go out after a few minutes. If I leave it on pilot it runs no problem. Unsure of how to proceed I have cleaned the thermo coupler with steel wool and no change. Any advice is appreciated.

It sounds like a bad thermocouple. The only part that doesn't seem normal is that a bad thermocouple won't usually hold the pilot light on either. Get a 2nd opinion, but a thermocouple is inexpensive. Your RV furnace may differ from home furnaces. If your heating season is over, you could wait until fall.

I picked one up today with that in mind will change out soon. Only $13.00 so worth a shot.

thermo couple

take the old one out go to your nearest competent hardware store they should have it nothing complicated about them.

I just did a rebuild of a 30 year old Vermont castings gas stove I used amazon for all my parts including a new gas valve and thermocouple!

be thankful if its just a thermocouple and they do go bad!!

just be careful not to bend the tube to much to kink it when installing new one.
