What is this vent?

We have a 73 Overlander and located just inside the door to the left at the bottom of the cabinet is a vent that blows air continuously. I've ordered a service manual but i don't have it yet can somebody help me out and let me know what this fan is...Thanks

It's probably your univolt in there. That's where mine was in my '76 Overlander that I used to have. It hums & throws some heat (I don't know if there is an actual fan in yours)

Pretty sure mine is in the rear inside the bathroom closet. There's an actual vent cover on the side of the cabinet, like a 4"x10" and the air isn't really warm. It blows hard enough you can feel it 4-5 feet away.

This is probably totally irrelevant, but right in that location on our trailer ( which has not much in common with yours) is a furnace vent that blows pretty hard and doesn't put out much heat.

Heck, our trailers weren't even made in the same century.

If the post is of no help, at least it will keep your question on the front page a bit longer,

On my Argosy, just inside the door, to the left, under the stove, is the propane furnace, vent on the side nearest entry door. Is you furnace fan running all the time? Check your thermostat on the bedroom wall.

Got a picture? I believe that will be a furnace vent. Check your thermostat and see if the switch is set for fan "on" rather than "auto".

It is the furnace and it was running because the wires to the thermostat were twisted together (thermostat is disconnected while working on updates inside). Thanks all
