1960 tradewind furnace what model?

Here is the furnace in my 60trdwnd . It works just fine except that the control knob 1-9 seems not to control the on off time 1 being coolest 9 being warmest or on longer .The blower under and behind furnace blows warm air out into the room and back into the rear bath which is cool .Does anyone know what model it is?

Hi Scott ~

This brand of furnace is unfamiliar to me. I have a GlenAir model without the blower. The knob on mine seems to act similar to yours though. Very little difference in temp control by turning it. For some reason, over the course of the last year or so it has started to adjust the height of the flame so there is some amount of adjustment. Sorry, can't help you with yours. Hopefully someone will chime in with info.

I had an International Oil Burner, with ductwork to the back. Threw it away last week. I saved the fan and transformer.

It was located under the kitchen sink.

It did not have a 1-9 power setting, operated off a magnetically stabilized remote thermostat.

I have paperwork for it.

Hey flyfshr,

I forgot where in yor trdwnd yor furnace is.I have visited many times in the photo section ,you would think I would know!! Mine is a pain because of the table ,straps to the wall right next to it . Maybe that knob is a flame height control .You do have to turn it to at least setting 1 for it to come on. all the way back to off to shut it down . So that all works .The furnace will definately roast you out ,so some control would be nice.

Hey Scott ~

My fridge, if you recall, is by the entry door. It really makes a great type of thermal barrier when its cold outside and the door opens. Yep, it'll roast you if its up all the way. About one third of the way on the turned knob is about all I can stand on those really cold nights but "really cold" is a relative term for an Arizonian.

My original knob on the furnace was missing and I acquired an extra stove burner knob that works quite well but the markings are long gone.

My furnace

Scott,

My furnace on the 60 Trade Wind (CA model), is much like Brads. I can't recall the brand though. I have not tried it's operation as of yet, as I just got two new propane tanks. The reason I haven't fired it up yet, is that sometime in the past, the thing fouled and sooted the entire trailer...the entire roof was nothing but a foul black mess that took alot of scrubbing to get it off. Here is a photos.

Your is the same model as mine. It's a GlenAire and will cook you out if its working properly. Check it thoroughly if its sooted the walls. Here all this time I thought it was folks smoking in the trailer.

My plug and door handle

Here are a few pictures of my Bargman plug and door, plus some in the works polishing. Obviously, the date on the camera reset....as the pictures were taken this morning.

Hello Robanzoe,
i have that part in the photo you need for your power cord ,post the cord end/extension cord photo.Is it in the same condition?My furnace is on the steetside as I posted earlier but my tradewind is different than others such as yours are. F F is the same layout as yours.The only trdwnd I have seen that looks like mine inside and outside is Toby Folwicks 60 trdwnd .even the interior fabricks ,bath sink and tub ,I think his stove was that brownish color ,mine is original white.Ive looked at tons of photos in the archives and i think one other was close .

Layout

Scott,

I was the only 1960 Trade Wind at the CBR last weekend, but there were 2 61s there. I'll try to get their layout photos. Also, I will get photos of the ext cord ends.

Thanks,

Rob

furnace latecomer

I know I'm a little late on this thread so I'm fairly sure you all have moved on. I took my 61 Tradewind to Safford RV for a new furnace and water heater, general check out and state insp. My furnace is under the stove. I'd tell you the model but the Book is in the trailer. I'll let you know what Don (the only one authorized to work on Airstream down there) will take measurements for both. I will let you know what he comes up with.

Henry

Good luck

The last time I was at Safford, one of the only Airstream Dealers (so they say - yeah they have plenty of "New" trailers on the lot) on the east coast, I was looking for Vulkem... and was rudely told, "that stuff! They haven't used that in years! - Airstream uses Silicone now!" - and that is when I decided to stay clear of there! Hope they do you justice - but I did not find them the best "Vintage" dealer out there. I know, a good dealer is hard to find.

Vulcan? Ain't that the space guy with the finger thing?

Rob,

I went in and went down the simple list of things I wanted checked out and the service manager doesn't have a clue - couldn't even give me an estimate - wasn't able to tell me what the outside skin would look like after the installs - had four phones ringing at once and no time to focus for more than five seconds.

The parts guy wasn't much better..had trouble looking up fan-tastic fan.

Needless to say Amy and I were more than a little nervous about leaving it with them.

SO....I went in to the service bays to find the person who would be working on it, Don. This gentleman came out to the lot to look at the trailer, took a quick tour, answered our questions and made a couple of recommendations. He clearly had a clue and we were much more comfortable with the process.

install furnace and h20 heater
install fan-tastic fan in the skylight in the back
inspect and pack wheel bearings
install new trailer jack
check LP system
State inspection

Not too sure just what puzzles the service manager with this, but now, the man who will do the work is clear on what is to be done.

Any suggestions on h20 heaters & under-the-stove furnaces??

Henry
