Thanks for the thread about furnace replacement.

I have not replaced mine yet, it seems to work fine, but I plan on replacing it before next fall for the following reasons:

1. Heat exchanger is SS versus cast iron, so it won't rust (thanks for the info idroba).
2. New furnace is more efficient.
3. No concerns about a hole in the cast iron heat exchanger (safety).
4. Spark ignition.
5. fan uses much less power to operate. I believe the new fans use only about 1/2 the power of the old fans, thus much less drain on the batteries when boondocking.
6. New furnace is probably lighter (like everything else).

Is the heat exchanger stainless or just the burner?
