Cargo bay heater

We have a 2002 Newmar Dutch Star. Trying to figure out how the cargo bay heater works. Found the switch to turn on but does it run off the furnace?

There is a duct that goes from the furnace to the basement/water bay, so whenever the furnace is on, warm air goes to the basement.

There is a switch in the water bay that turns on/off a booster fan in that duct, but the power to that switch comes from the furnace (when running from the thermostat) through a fuse next to the furnace, probably under the refrigerator.

So, the furnace must be on, the fuse must be good and the booster fan switch in the water bay must be on for the full flow of heated air to get to the basement and water bay.

Welcome to IRV2! Are you referring to the electric heater in the wet bay that most MH's had back in those days? If so, there should be a switch inside labeled "System heat". That provides power to the heater but there will be a snap disc mounted near the heater that only allows it to come on when the temp gets down to a set point.

Newmars of the OP's Dutch Star vintage did not have factory installed electric heaters in the basement. They came with a propane forced air furnace or an optional Hydro-hot hydronic system.
