Tips and tricks for your RV furnace.
- Don’t place anything flammable near the exhaust of the furnace. The exhaust air is very hot and will melt plastic tables and ignite any flammable fabric that may be obstructing the exhaust air. If you’re not sure where the furnace exhaust air is located, just turn on your furnace and walk around the outside of your RV listening for the furnace blower motor. When you’ve located the motor sound you’ll notice an exhaust vent (and possible an intake vent too). The exhaust vent will have hot air coming out.
- There is no air filter on a RV furnace so don’t worry about cleaning it.
- When you turn on your furnace for the first time each season you will smell burning dust for the first 10-20 minutes. That’s normal.
- Mud wasps (mud daubers) like to enter your furnace via the air intake or exhaust vents and build mud nests inside your furnace. You can buy a screen to place over the intake and exhaust vents to prevent this. Don’t get a screen with a really fine mesh as this will choke off the air supply to the furnace.
- If you’re in a freezing environment and your propane tank is almost empty, your furnace may not operate correctly. Filling your propane tank will fix this.
- When you turn on your furnace the blower motor will run for about 30 seconds before the burner ignites. When you turn off the furnace the burner will extinguish immediately but the blower motor will run for about 45 seconds.
- If you are “Dry Camping” your furnace will drain your battery every time the furnace comes on. Set your thermostat lower than normal to conserve battery power.
