Hornet’s Nest in Your Furnace

Watch this short video to learn why annual furnace maintenance is needed – especially before winter season! 

 

The THINGS we find when we do normal inspections!

RV owners — especially those who travel during colder months (winter travel) — should be proactive in preparing the forced-air heating system for those days and nights when the thermometer dips.

An RV forced-air furnace is a sealed combustion system, so it is relatively easy for coach owners to perform a few maintenance procedures to ensure that warm air will circulate when needed. As in the example above, a simple, DIY inspection would reveal an easy to remove issue – such as hornets in your furnace. However, as with any propane-burning appliance, it is still crucial that the delivery line pressure be measured and adjusted; the regulator be tested; and a deeper cleaning be performed periodically.

It is also a great idea to have the complete propane piping system tested for leaks at least once per camping season.

But there are a few simple steps all motorhome owners can follow to avoid labor costs. I’ve always maintained that the four crucial areas regarding the RV forced-air furnace are as follows:

  • Cleanliness of the furnace
  • Proper routing of the ductwork
  • Return airflow
  • DC voltage input
