air filter?

Another question. In our 27RLS there is a wooden slatted air intake under the fridge. When the heater is running it's recirculating the air through here.

It doesn't look like there is any way to remove the wooden grating, so I'm assuming there is no air filter behind there?

Does anything accumulate anywhere in this recirculation process? Dust, dog hair etc?

Thank you!

RV's usually don't have air filters. Reasoning for that is they are not supposed to be used for permanent living and the furnace is only used a few times a year.
I installed a filter because we use the unit more full time.

X2 on the furnace air filter question. I haven't seen anything to indicate there is a filter, but the air conditioner has some filtration. Does the furnace?

I assume it doesn't. So, what, if anything, has anyone installed?

I haven't taken the cover off an RV furnace for a long time, but I imagine there is enough room to fashion your own filter.

However, I would caution that since it's not designed to have a filter, I'm thinking the airflow would be impeded and could cause problems.
