Guessing ducts were only slightly kinked since I've never inspected or moved any of them (thinking RV tech was just covering up for the fact that the thermostat was the ONLY issue and they had already installed a new board).

The furnace in our 2004 Tioga has always worked without problems, but it is comforting when it comes on and cycles properly. There are a lot of DIY videos on You Tube on trouble shooting and fixing furnaces, etc. Finding a good RV furnace repair guy may be difficult.

My Atwood burner was grounding out the the electrode /spark igniter to the burner. Wish I could copy and pate an image. I took the old burner off and installed a new burner. Two wires and 4 -1/4” nuts. I started to get a sail switch but it works fine. Good luck.

UPDATE: Furnace worked all week just fine! I did inspect the ducts underneath cabinetry and appears they were shortened to fit more snug and without any kinks. So, most likely the thermostat (and will replace promptly if this ever happens again!) before going to RV mechanic.

"most likely the thermostat" yes, I agree with you, just stick with what you have now...it works .
Sometimes home type digital thermostats can be used and sometimes not.

Well, look at the positive side of all this, think of how much lighter your rv is now that you have shortened your ductwork [emoticon]

Glad it all worked out and you had a good time in N.C.
be well,
Bob
