Gas and Electric water heater and furnace

I just bought a 345 about a month ago and plan on using it to live in until I find land to build a house on. Until then I am in a nice campground for the up coming winter in NC. How can I tell if I have a electric hot water heater and a electric furnace. It would make life allot easier if I had it. I also have a fuse box under on of the booth seats..there is a on and off breaker...what does this control? I appreciate every ones help.THANKS

Jim,

Chances are that you have a propane furnace and a propane water heater, which might or might not have an electric side to it. The furnace is almost definitely LP with 12VDC for the blower motor and control board unless it was replaced with something else by the PO.

Look at the water heater and let me know the manuf and model # and I'll get the specs and the details.

Jim, tell me about the campground you're in. I've not spent the night in that part of Wake Forest / Raleigh yet. I may come visit this fall.

Our 1985 345 has a heat strip built into the rear air conditioner. Used it last night in fact. It isn't very powerful, but will take the chill off. You should have two propane furnaces. One under the sink, and one under the linen closet in the bedroom. Thermostats on the wall for each. You can add a heating rod to your water heater. Easy to do.

WOW...Thanks for the responces..I will look at the model #'s and get you the info! I am staying at a small camp ground called Rock Ridge, it is in Sims acctually..about 45 min East of Raleigh. It is a nice quite place. The people running it are very nice and look after everything well when your not home. Right now I am the only Airstream MoHo, there is one new @24 foot here also parked for the season. Would be great to see more come in!
