Furnace needed

Does anyone know which model /make furnace came in an 89 Vacation Villa park model. It's a 12x33, I can'tseem to find the model number anywhere and would like to order the new one before pulling out the old one.

I suspect you'll find the make and model # after you remove the furnace.

I opted to quit using the RV furnace in favor of a thermostatically controlled propane heater. It keeps the temperature more consistent and it uses WAY less propane than a furnace. Plus it's silent.

I have model SR10TW

Heater

That sounds like a possible alternative, what was the price of that one I didn't see it on their website ?

I searched online for the best price. It wasn’t cheap- about $300 but I bet I’ve save more than that in propane and gas to run the generator. Furnaces waste propane AND electricity. I run a small USB fan pointed at the wall above the heater to help circulate the heat. It is almost silent and uses almost no battery power.

The heater is cheaper without the thermostat but that’s what makes them work better than a furnace. Mine keeps the temperature within a degree of where I want it. It doesn’t set at a certain degree, but I’ve learned that 6 clicks past the pilot setting keeps us at 70 degrees.

The Empire radiant heaters are made in the USA, but their blue flame heaters come from China. The difference in quality is well worth the extra money.
