Fleetwood Furnace Filter?

I have a 1997 Fleetwood Southwind. I have searched all over this RV and cannot find a furnace filter anywhere. Does it even have one? Find it hard to beleive it wouldn't.

Thanks,
Russell Mack

Most RV's do not use a filter on the return for the furnaces.

Call Fleetwood and ask. I have one in my coach, you have to lay on your stomach and reach under the washer/dryer to get it but it is there.

Americans have the filter, they are an exception to the rule.

I think most do not have filters but I'm sure there are exceptions, probably higher end MH's.

I installed my own, then found out that if they are not designed for it they only restrict the flow, so I removed them.

Even that isn't totally true - my 2004 American Tradition has none.

Some American coaches have the furnace mounted in the basement with the air return on the floor above. Those have filters. The ones with the furnace mounted higher were not provided with filters. Apparently they don't ingest as much dust when installed that way.
