Anybody know the model number? I did a "FIND" and came up empty.

I checked Alpine sales brochures & Google; it appears that Atwood made the Hydro-Flame 42,000 btu furnaces, but on their website they only have furnaces with an exterior access door, and no Hydro-Flame. Alpines have an exterior intake/exhaust vent only, no access door.

I'm looking for 1) Owner's Manual, 2) Troubleshooting Guide and 3) Installation Manual for the ACA Tech Library, since it appears this may be an out of production appliance. I'm pretty sure Atwood will have parts when needed, but the technical docs would be great to have thru ACA for long term servicing. If you have these in PDF format please PM.
Thanks, Mike

EngineerMike,

My '04 coach came with a Suburban Model SF-42F propane furnace. I thought I had the manual in PDF format, but I can't find it if I do. I don't see it on the manufacturer's website.

Yeah, the Suburban website essentially says:
If there's a problem, call a tech,
If there is any question, call a tech,
If you can't find the answer to your question in our 10 FAQ's (most of which tell you to call a tech), then call a tech.
For all other problems, call a tech.
I love good technical help like that . That's why I'm trying to track down the documents and get them in ACA's tech library.

Thanks for the model #. That's a good start

The next time I am at my coach I will look for the paper manual, and scan it if I can find it.

I found a parts list, which I guess is better than nothing.

Jim- I didn't know AAA RV Appliance had a website; I've shopped in their Sacramento, CA store, and they know their stuff. That 's a great outfit to deal with.

Sammie- Bryant didn't have the specific docs, tho they do have a homemade SF series service manual which looks good, and a Suburban Technical Information document here (scroll down to Furnaces) that would be helpful for DIY service. Thanks.

All- I've got a lead on the factory Installation & Owner's docs from one of the group. I'll let you know if that doesn't work.
