267bhs heater fan

Camped a couple nights that were cool in our new 267BHS and found that the heater fan seems to be a bit anemic. It appears that the heater has three outlets, one under the bunks, one facing the slide in the kitchen and the third by the entry door facing the front. The outlet that is back by the bunks puts out quantity sufficient volume of nice warm air. the one facing the kitchen is really weak, on the one facing the front doesn't really have any heat at all coming from it. I have looked at the ducts the best i can and they seem to be hooked up and have no kinks or such in them. I was wondering if this is about normal, or is there some easy type of trouble shooting i can do to try to balance the output?

Jeremy - When we got ours, we had the same issue, so I got a leaf blower to push through the ducts, and found a nice pice of crumpled up lunch bag blocking probably 80% of the duct flow.....May be your situation is the same. My wife also had the genius idea of buying a small ceramic disc heater to use when hooked up. I think it is a Pelonis and about $90
1.) It is WAY quiet compared to the furnace.
2.) It is small, so it fits easily in any cabinet.
3.) We only use it when hooked up, but even in the sub zero temps, the furnace does not come roaring to life like the turbine on an F-18! As well, less trips for refills on the LP tanks!

Keep in mind if you are at a camp ground with electric hookup its better to use thier electricoty rather than your propnae. We run a couple of OIL-FILLED Portable Electric heaters in our trailers and plug them into the 20AMP Service at the camp ground pedestal using a extension cord. Using the CG 20AMP service receptacle has it own circuit breaker and will help from overloading your regular shore power connection.

This is also a great PLAN B to have in case you run out of PROPANE at night.

We carry alot of PLAN B items...
