Just purchased a 1989 model Chieftan 32 ft and cannot locate the furnace.....duh...any suggestions? The only obvious place I haven't yet looked is under the booth seat at the side entry door.

Boss Hogg, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. Look on the outside of the coach for a vented area just above the fllo line that may have the word"HOT" printed on it. This is probably the furnace and it will be located on the inside of the wall at this point.

Mike,
Thanks,
I have checked on the passenger side previously and there is a cover for the gas water heater, and the water heater just inside.
On the other side of the coach is the gas cook stove which was replaced a short time ago by a previous owner. Also above this is the vented vent hood and then the microwave above this.
I have looked in every cabinet, behind every door inside and outside and cannot locate a furnace...duh....
There are registers inside in the floor, so I am assuming that there is (or was) a furnace...The air units (2) in the roof are air conditioners with a warm selector, but nothing indicates "heat"....just cool and fan....

I am still looking for the furnace, and plan to call a previous owner...
In view of the fact that I cannot locate a vent on the side of the coach, I am thinking that maybe there isn't a furnace....if and when I find it, it will be fun.....

Thanks....

Hi Mike,
I called the prev owner and he said the furnace was under the bed in the rear of the unit...
He said that it is self-lighting....duh....
modern conveniences.....he said always turn off the gas when traveling down the road...makes sense...
Thanks again for your response.
Today I removed the water pump, as it would only blow fuses when activated.
(they hid that too....)
I want to work out as many bugs as possible before running down the road.
