Question about Coleman Propane Forced Air Heater w/Electronic Ignition (50,000-80,000 BTU)
I HAVE A RHEEM HIGH EFFICIENT FURNACE-EXHAUST VENTS TO OUTSIDE WITH A BLOWER MOTOR, WHEN IT IS WINDY OUTSIDE THE BACKDRAFT CAUSES IT TO SHUT DOWN AND TRY AGAIN FOR THREE TIMES THAN I HAVE TO RESET. IS THERE ANYTHING THAT CAN BE DONE TO PREVENT BACKDRAFT IN THIS UNIT?
Build some kind of barrier outside so the wind doesn't hit the vent. A piece of plywood before it or a big box around the vent. There is a pressure switch that the wind is messing with. It is a safety and necessary for the furnace to run properly.

It's the pressure switch on the unit. Make sure that the pressure switch doesn't have debris in it that keeps it from operating smoothly. Take the tubing off from the inducer side and breath in and blow out lightly while listening for a clicking noise. If that doesn't work then I would recommend replacing it. That should solve the issue.
