After driving in the rain for the first time I noticed water in the furnace vents along the floor. I have a feeling that water went into the outside furnace air intake/exhuast vent while we were driving. The exhaust/air intake is on the curbside wall.
Anyone have this happen to them?

AK..
Well..it looks like no one else has experienced this one... a phone call to Guaranty or Monaco Service Center is what I would be doing tomorrow morning ...better to do it now before you get too far from the area...

Good luck...

AK,
There should not be a direct connection between the air intake/exhaust for the furnace burner and the air that circulates inside your coach. The coach air merely circulates through a plenum (chamber) which is heated by the propane burner. I believe the problem lies elsewhere.

Roland,
Yeah, after I took off the exhaust cover on the outside of the coach I realized my mistake on calling it an air intake. The intake is in the kitchen...DUH!!! Sheesh! How long have I been RVing anyway?

When I had the furnace running, it evaporated the water. I was wondering if it could be condensation build-up...but I doubt it.

I'll call tech service about it M.M. Also ther is a Monoco service center in Mesa.

Thanks,

AKBrick
