where is the furnace?

I recently bought a 1982 excella (31 ft) and this may sound like a dumb question but I can't figure out where the furnace is located. I used the camper a couple of weeks ago and wanted to try out the heat. But I could not figure out where the furnace and pilot light were to fire it up. Can someone help me out.
(1) where is the furnace?
(2) where is the pilot light on the furnace?

Most furnaces of that vintage are electronic ignition, so you don't need to light anything. Check under the sink, that is where mine is. Go outside the trailer and walk around you should find the input and exhaust, the furnace is right behind that.

The furnace on our '83 is located beneath the oven and is turned on by a switch on the bottom of the thermostat mounted above the head of the curb side twin bed.
