Replacing NT-20 with NT-24SP

Hey all - the Airstream dealer up in north FL looked at my furnace and verified it to be a recall unit. Additionally, they said something was damaged (glass something-or-another) and would not troubleshoot it...
Being in FL, I have no REAL need for a furnace and spending the $1,000 to have a new, modern unit installed is wayyyyyyy low on my priority list.

However, I would entertain installing a non-recall, similar used unit. A used NT-24SP is available. Do any of you know what kind of work it would be to install this unit into my trailer? I know the newer units require some modification to install - but what about this older unit? I'm not really wanting to go through too much work or cost for this project....

Suggestions/advice being solicited!!!

Laura

Did the dealer say why the unit was recalled? Can it be repaired?

The s/n was one of the massive recall from the 70's. I think it had to do with a crossover tube ....

They refused to even troubleshoot/inspect it further. Said it was too much a safety issue to fire up. If they won't give it a try, I really don't feel comfortable doing it myself.

Oh Oh Oh --- I just noticed that I hit the 1000+ posts mark! Time to celebrate, I think...

I sure was hoping someone would know!

Maybe it's time to yank the furnace and add a safe in it's place. Yeah, like I have something to put in a safe..... hummmm.... nope, can't think of anything....

Laura,
We are thinkin along the same lines as you...Do we really NEED central heat?

We havent used our 34' heater in quite a while...when boondocking, we use the Olympian Wave so we don't drain the batteries...when we have hookups we use cube heaters!

The '63 that we are rebuilding will probably NOT get a central heat...

Oh yeah...congrats on the 1,000th post!
