Suburban NT-30SP: Is it safe to use?

Doing a once over on my AS today and checking out everything that runs on LP.

I pulled the cover off the Suburban furnace and it looks awesome! Just like brand new! I checked the ducts and everything looks to be good, so I went ahead and flipped it on. Fan works great, and it fired right off. Flame looked good through the little peep hole. I let it run a few minutes and it worked just fine. It made good heat and got the AS nice and hot inside.

So, I've read a lot of things about these furnaces on here, and a lot of people seem to shy away from the old ones.

Are they safe to use??

thanks!
Clay

That is the new version. It must have been replaced at one time.

Use mine all the time. Just make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector in the rig.

I've installed three new NT-30s over the years. It is a "standard" furnace representing good value in my view. They have been made for years and years.

They won't ignite if the fan doesn't work, if the gas valve malfunctions, and will shut down if it gets to hot. I have a lot of confidence in this particular furnace.

The CO detector is needed in everyone's camper. Safety first.

Ditto what everyone else said. Also, my '67 furnace was a bear to light....Put in a new one with electronic ignition and it is a dream. Just turn it on and get warm. No pilot to struggle with. We use it often.
