Furnace question on '06 Classic

Can anyone tell me where the furnace is located on a classic 06. I canít locate the thermostat and I would also need instructions on how to light it when I locate it.

On the 30' 2006 Classic, the furnace is located just aft of the entrance door. It is under and behind some of the galley cabinets. The thermostat that controls the air conditioner also controls the furnace, by setting the mode to furnace (? I don't have my manual with me), then choosing the desired temperature set point. The furnace has an electric ignitor, so it cycles on and off as needed.

One had best locate the furnace manual and read a bit before trying the unit.

Airperson,

The furnace on your 06 has direct spark ignition and does not have a pilot light.

Service access for the furnace is from the exterior. There is a wide, low panel with the air intake and exhaust grill on one side with the word "HOT" embossed. You would remove the large screws to open the panel if there were a need for access.

I appreciate all the great feedback from you guys. I felt after reading your posts that the furnace might turn into a safety issue for us. So I decided to try and get ahold of someone at the Airstream factory to give me a hand. The guy that answered the phone at Jackson Center walked me through using the furnace. He really took his time and answered my questions and make sure I understood before we hung up. I was really glad I made the call. Happy trails…

AP,

Just press the mode button 'til you see furnace where "cool" in in this pic. The on/off switch is on bottom rt corner. You can just see it under the buttons.

Ours wouldn't stay lit this Spring at get ready, mud dauber (wasp) nests in the burner exhaust tube,"hot" in the pic. The Furnace exhaust outlet is behind the entry door when open, MAKE SURE DOOR IS CLOSED whenever the the furnace is on or you may blister the clearcoat.

AP,

Your right about pictures....

Whenever we get anything with an instruction manual the DW is always very impressed by the fact that I'm reading them.....don't tell her I'm just looking at the pictures.
