...furnace locations vary by model year and length....generally, the plate that surrounds the exhaust/clear air intake on the outside of the coach provides access....

The furnace on my 2001 36ft is below the fridge. A panel pulls off below the fridge inside the coach. The furnace can be removed from there. At least on mine, and my fan has been replaced.

My heater is under the fridge.

I had the bottom fridge deck lowered to make room fo commercial fridge. Left about 1" clearance to heater. Last year had fan replaced, some cussin & fussin but they replaced the fan, etc.

If it is squeaking you may as well replace it. I recall the fan motor wasnít pricey. It is easy to get out from under the fridge....if that is where it is.
Taking it apart is another story. What a pain. Wear gloves so you donít cut your fingers on the sharp metal.

I have a squealing Suburban furnace fan motor too.
Stops after about a minute or so, then fine the rest of the day.
Just a matter of time before it makes for a rough nights sleep.
It's on the to do list...
Anyone have a good source for a new fan motor?
Truthfully I haven't even tried to source one yet.
