Furnace wont light Micro Minnie 2108DS

I HAVE A 2108 DS, HAVE HAD AN ISSUE WITH THE FURNACE SCINCE NEW. I HAVE HAD IT INTO THE DEALER MULTIPLE TIMES . AND IT NEVER WORKS!!
BLOWER WILL COME ON FOR 30 SECONDS AND STOPS. SURE IT HAS WORKED A COUPLE TIMES, BUT SEEMS TO FAIL WHEN WE NEED IT MOST!!

I HAVE BEEN TOLD THE SAIL SWITCH IS THE ISSUE, BUT NOT FROM THE DEALER. I TOLD THEM TO CHECK IT, THEY SAID OH, THATS NOT WORKING RIGHT BECAUSE YOU HAVE DOGS, AND THERE IS HAIR ALL OVER IT.

WELL, IF THERE IS, HOW DID IT GET PAST THE PILE OF SAW DUST FROM WHEN THEY MADE THE TRAILER????

LONG STORY SHORT, I STARTED BRINGING A PORTABLE HEATER THIS LAST WEEKEND, IT GOT COLD, I WENT OUT AND STARTED MY GENERATOR, CAME BACK IN, AND THE HEATER WAS WORKING!!!!!

ANY IDEAS???? BATTERYS ARE GREAT, 12.7 VOLTS, BIG 6 VOLT RV BATTERIES...A PAIR....

Maybe it's hair.
Is there hair on the sail switch?
Maybe it's a spider or wasp nest on the switch.
Are the vents screened to keep bugs out?

It acts like the sail switch is not working at times and that is often a sign it is fouled! It sounds like two different sources have suggested this is true.

None of these are a warranty item, so have you checked the sail switch?

Put a meter on the switch leads and see if it is working?

I only see three options:
Pay to have it fixed.
Fix it yourself.
Or just keep butting the dam until something changes!

we have a 2020 2108DS. We are having the same problem that you are describing.
Ours quit this past winter in NC while working on a project. We were able to pull it
inside our metal building and made do with a space heater. The whole building is close cell foamed so the plumbing was safe. I think it is the sail switch on ours from everything I have read. It looks pretty envolved to get it pulled out from under your refrigerator and onto the floor where you can work on it. Read and study up the articles that are out there and plan the work or find a good tech. Hope it works out well
