    Did the home owner remove the pressure switch? I can't believe a tech would do that.

    Home owner did it, said it's ran fine like that for awhile. Couldn't get through to him how unsafe it is. Knew everything.

    Those trailer units always have something special in store for you

    How does this even work? Doesn't the logic in most systems check to see that pressure switches are open at the beginning a cycle and then closed after at some point after the inducer is energized???

    Thats a good observation. I have been on more rigged trailer furnaces than I can count.

    You're giving these units too much credit, they aren't that smart.

    If I'm remembering correctly this unit has an ignition box that only cares about flame signal and closed safeties, if it's getting the 24v to the box it's good, so let the removal and jumping out begin!
