Default Question for FC owners with separate icemaker

Ok, in this thread http://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.co...ad.php?t=18507 I was looking for the thermostat to control the front propane heater (never messed with heat until recently). I was assuming I had a front/third propane heater because there is a vent for it...however, the vent is just forward of the entry door and right behind that is the icemaker. Looking through the bluebox, I see that this coach was originally equipped with double couches but at some point was converted to the two barrel chairs (not sure if icemaker was added at this point or if it was already there). Anyways, I can't see how the heater would fit in the small cabinet that holds the icemaker, so do those with the icemaker (located immediately forward of the entry door) have a 3rd/forward propane heater? I'm thinking it was removed because to the left of the chassis heat thermostat is a cover plate (which maybe at some point housed the thermostat for the heater that maybe was replaced with an icemaker). Just curious to see how other people's coach is outfitted.

I'm almost convinced I only have 2 propane heaters - there isn't another exhaust port besides the one behind the icemaker and I have searched high/low and can't find anymore thermostats.

thanks!

look outside the coach- if you see 3 propane vents- there you have it

I wonder if your ice maker was moved to that location (mine is under the sink) and the heater removed, clearly you have a heater vent outside the ice maker area but no way will a furnace be able to fit in that space with the ice maker.

This is what I'm beginning to believe. I was mainly curious if BB used some kind of weird remote heater exhaust for the 3rd heater as they seem to be fond of hiding things in weird places.

Shine a flashlight into the exhaust vent. Anything there? If not, no heater.

I got a rear bath, forward heater is under the road side couch. I'd lose the ice maker and install a furnace in the space personally. Of course I favor red wine @ cellar temp.

Are you referring to the metal vent under the ice maker? I seem to recall that is part of the ice maker.
