Furnace

We turned on our furnace to check it out before buying our 5th wheel and the air flow is very low compared to our dutchstar. Does anyone else that has purchased a Lifestyle have very low air flow from the furnace?

Thanks

Does your 5vr have a heated underbelly ? Could be the furnace is putting too much warm air in the belly instead of inside.... Just an idea...

We have a 36FWS Lifestyle. The air flow does not blast through the vents. We have a lot of vents. The heater is 41000 BTU's. Heats up the camper just fine. My hunch is that you are OK.

I wouldn't call the airflow strong, but it heats up quickly. Check your ducts and make sure they're all attached well.

Was your DS a heat pump? HP's rely on much higher air volumes than a LPG heat exchanger. Most users find large air volumes drafty.
As others noted insure the duct work is intact and adjusted correctly. There might also be different speed taps on the fan motor. Installers generally get less complaints using the slow speed, as it's quieter.


Be well.
