Motorhome furnace

Are there any motorhomes that have 2 furnaces? I have 4 access doors. I know one is for the hot water heater, one is for the refridgerator, and there are two indentical doors, at least one is for the furnace. These access doors are on the outside,drivers side of the motor home.

The 1985 Airstream 345 that we just sold had a furnace in the lounge and another in the bedroom. The bedroom one was also vented into the toilet stool area and would scorch your bare feet. Also had two air conditioners.

The furnace access doors tend to have two holes for the intake and exhaust air.

Also you may have two access panels/vents for the refrig - one at the bottom and one at the top.

If you can post some pics, we should be able to tell you definitely.

Your 36' Fleetwood Discovery may have one furnace. That's at the breaking point for having two.
Like RVthere said, you will have a metal plate(usually chrome) with two, 2" vertical holes where the furnace draws in combustion air and exhausts flue gas.

Two of our three coaches have had two furnaces, and one of them was a 36 footer (1996 Southwind).
