Switching appliances to natural gas.

I have a 75 Sovereign that I am setting up for extra living space and do not intend to take on the road for an extended period, if ever.

Is it possible to switch over the appliances to run on natural gas? Specifically can I switch over the furnace by changing the orifice size?

I need to add I have not even tried to light this furnace on propane and given that it is 40 years old it might be wise to just replace it. Is there a new RV furnace that will run on natural gas? or some other type small furnace?

Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

I cannot imagine that you will find RV appliances that can convert to NG as CNG is very rare in this country. Some boat appliances can be purchased as CNG, mostly for Europe where there is some CNG. You probably would need to have orifices made but then you would need to experiment for the right size. If you are going to be stationary just look for a NG catalytic heater.
