Pull the unit out, taking pics on how it's installed.. take it apart to clean, also taking pics, and if you feel comfortable, bench test. If you'd rather, after it's out take it to a propane dealer and ask them to. Most problems are crud and critters, but you want to know if the plenum is intact-not cracked. Most people opt for a more modern, safer way to heat. Others, who have dealt with this issue will chime in soon. Nice looking trailer by the way.

Thanks. Yeah, want to keep the costs down on this one, and if worse comes to worse, take the heater out and make it a "summer trailer." Appreciate your response. I somehow thought I could just fire it up and make sure it didn't leak, but looks like I've got to get under the trailer again...what is a plenum?
".....give a lazy man a hard job, and he'll find an easy way to do it."
There are several definitions for "plenum", one being an air filled chamber. An RV air conditioner plenum is the lower section on the ceiling of the RV. It houses the controls and directs the air flow.
Vikx has it right for that floor furnace. A cracked burner chamber could be hard to replace. She and others have suggested several options that won't break the bank and give you a year round useable trailer. My mis-speak.
