OK, I'm new to RV'ing and picked up a 1999 Keystone Springdale Lite. It needed a little work, some roof repair, replacing some wood, etc. I've checked out just about everything on the RV but I can't find the furnace? I've checked every hatch, hole, etc. and can't find anything that looks like a furnace. The outside access has the fridge, water pump, and hot water heater, but no other access found. Without looking like an idiot, any help is appreciated. Thanks!!

First off, hello and welcome to the furnace. do you have a thermostat inside the trailer on the wall somewhere? Outside you would see a steel pipe with a plate over top with the word "HOT" stamped on it. That would be the furnace exhaust. It is possible that it doesn't have a furnace.

if it has a furnace, their will be vents in the floor or a large one near the furnace, also will be a return air vent (usually no filter like at home) and the furnace will be behind/below the return air vent. that return air vent should be the give away as to where it is.

it could have the heat strips in the a/c unit instead of a furnace i guess but usually the heat strips are just an add on.

our camper is a Keystone and the furnace is under the fridg, yours may or may not be. hope that is some help anyhow....

Thanks! Yes it has floor vents and a wall mounted thermostat. I'll check for the return vent location. I just figured that there would be an access to lit a pilot or something. Thanks for all the help.
