Default How do I access front propane furnace under sofa?

Hi

Front Suburban propane furnace under or near sofa blows cold air. Don't know how to access it. Rear propane furnace works fine. It's in a 1989 WB PT40.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Yvonne

On my 88 WB I pulled the drawers then removed screws from inside the cabinet, there are quite a few and you need to be careful to avoid rounding of the screws...Remove the counter top...Then the whole cabinet can be removed..completely exposing the furnace...I did this in the spring and cleaned out the suburban...

Thank You. I down loaded both. Having trouble accessing as the cabinet appears to be glued in place.

I found several screws way in and difficult to get to - facing outside wall and kitchen counter. Also, rug needs to get out of the way around the cabinet. Not the most fun I ever had. Good luck.

The electric heaters and the rear propane heater work. That might have to do for now. I am in the coach parked at our property in Douglas County Oregon. At this time the plan is to stay in the BB for the winter. I have to figure out what needs to be done to live in it during the winter as my husband, Bob, died unexpectedly in July. If I were to leave the BB here and go home then I would need to know what to do to winterize it under those circumstances. I am not sure what I have to do and I want to keep the coach in good shape. Any pointer would really help.
Thanks! Yvonne

Yvonne:
Sorry to hear about Bob.

Do you have 50 amp power at your site?

How cold does it get there, does it freeze often, or only now and then.

On our coach, there are actual heaters under the bed and kitchen sink being used as freeze heaters, yours might as well. If you have heat inside, the fresh water should be okay. I would however drain the grey and black water tanks.
