Applications - This unit is typically installed in tent campers, truck campers and small travel trailers due to its
small size and lower BTU capacities. It is sometimes used in larger trailers or motor homes for smaller zone
heating.
Heat Outlets - This furnace is usually set up as a front discharge unit. However, it does have a 4" duct outlet on
either side of its casing for soft ducting to remote outlets. To determine the most efficient ducting configuration,
refer to Minimum Ducting Configuration.
Directional Air Box Insert - If you need to direct heat to the front or rear of a camper and you cannot use soft
ducting and registers, an optional diverter plate with 55 degree louvers can be added to the front exhaust box.
Serviceability - Practically all of the components of this furnace are accessible by removing the front grille.
Therefore, the furnace does not need to be removed for most repairs. The only components that are not accessible
without removing the furnace are the blower motor, sail switch and blower and combustion wheels.
Power Consumption - The 79 series furnace draws only 3.4 amps. However, there is an 8012 series furnace that
has a heating capacity of 12,000 BTU's and only draws 1.8 amps. This furnace is ideal for dry camping.
