Furnace Screen

Brian,
I have rec'd both the furnace and hot water screens from Camco. The Hot Water screen installed.
But I can not fiquire out how to installed the furnace screen. The outlet has a baffle installed on the outside of the door so as the directions indicate drop in. Not possible.
Hint?
Thanks,
Fred

Good Morning, Fred. The screen that I got for Lucy's furnace dropped right in without using any tools or clips.

I loosened the two screws and opened her furnace access door. It is hinged at the bottom. I then placed the Camco screen into Lucy's door, tucked it in and closed and reattached her door. The little dome on the screen clears the little baffle. On Lucy's furnace, this baffle is attached to the furnace, and not the door.

Below is a photo of Lucy's furnace access door with the Camco screen installed. If you need it, I will go out and take another picture with the door open.

I agree with Brian. Keeping your trailer on your own place is the best option. We use them all the time, whether or not we're on the road.

Doubl', I don't understand the exact problem with your driveway except that you drag the back of the trailer when you go into the driveway—I think that is what you said. There are wide ramps you can put on the curb. They go over the gutter and extend to the roadway, thus creating a bridge over the gutter and making it possible to lessen the problem of dragging the back of a long vehicle. You could simply buy a steel plate or buy something made for this purpose. You'd have to check with the local municipality to see what is ok with them, but that would only be necessary for a permanent installation.

Maybe the grade is too much and/or can't be changed easily. I agree with Brian it certainly is an advantage to be able to park your trailer at home and it is much cheaper too.

Lucy's digs in the alley behind our house are not quite as opulent as Jay's girls have, but she really likes being close and ready to roll.

Gene,
The advantages are unlimited. However, the dip is pretty deep. If I'd have to guess, the driveway is 5-7 degrees and the street is a good 4 degrees plus the gutter effect. I'll have to work on with the help of my engineer neighbor. Honestly it's very complicated.
Ramps probably need to be 8 feet long..........
I never stored the 5er at home for long either, but it was not ART!

Good morning Fred. I can't imagine what kind of furnace that your Airstream has. I thought that all the 25FB's had the Atwood 25,000 btu gas furnace. Even Old Lucy (our 2005 Safari 25FB) had the same Atwood furnace.

I'm sorry that my pictures didn't come through. I will post them again below.

Brian

This will hit several topics.

That cover for the furnace, etc looks like a great idea to try.

On the fitting of 6v batteries front, our dealer has apparently now found out how to make the 6v batteries fit in the deeper 2016 battery box without making any modifications. Yay.

Our RV parking area at the new house is taking shape. See attached pic (I hope it attaches) of work in progress. Will have power and water and a locking steel gate with steel posts. Was a pretty sloping site that has been built up using some pretty large rock.

Fred,

I don't believe that I have ever seen one like that before. I thought that they were all the same. I would think that the screen for the water heater night just cover that whole vent area and do the trick.

I tried to look that Atwood model up on line and I can not find it.

Brian

I put a screen that fit on my 16' and at the suggestion of my dealership I kinda bent/worked the edges out and it works prettygood. I'll try to get a picture today if I remember. I have the same one in my 2015 20'.

Brian,
I looked at some 25 FC FB twins currently on some dealer lots looks like they have the same panel as Feather has. I'll work on screen this weekend. Have you started on your Westward journey?

Fred,

Airstream must have made a furnace change in recent days. I guess Lucy is one of the earlier 2015's.

We have not left home yet, but are planning to try to depart next Monday or Tuesday. New Lucy is all ready to go. Our hold-up (as usual) is trying to get our house ready for company while we are gone. Having a house at the beach is great, but we get a lot of visitors while we are on the road in Lucy. Accordingly, we have to leave the house clean when we take off. We already have four sets of company coming in the next two months.

I plan to start a Lucy trip thread in the next couple of days.

Brian

Is it just the furnace door that is different, or is it a whole different furnace?

Lucy got a new tag number today. I have taken the tag from our 1956 Ford and have had it assigned to Lucy. This saves me about $100 a year while keeping this low number tag assigned to us.
