Rear furnace has air blowing AND a high pitch whine. The service guys are saying that is normal.

Has anyone else heard a difference in their MHs? Can't figure out what to do. Going to pick up tomorrow and well, I guess we'll have to put up with the loud whining noise in the rear where we sleep at night during winter/cold use. More concerned it is actually a problem they are not addressing.
howdy: when we got our 2012 378ts the front furnace made a humming, rattle noise, they pulled it out and fired it up on bench in shop and it was ugly, blower motor was loose, half the screws were stripped holding things in place. Back in and they both sound the same now, you will get blower noise that's normal, not rattles and squeals. Hope this helps a little. Oh by the way they take furnace out from inside. Pete

It's definitely a squeal noise. I think they don't care to truly investigate because the rig is brand new. We're doing a furnace walkthrough tomorrow....should be interesting.

howdy: when you do your furnace check with dealer do not let them b...s you if it doesn't sound the same as other heater make them fix it, or take to another place. Its shame people just don't care. You will have a lot of little fixes so don't get discourage about this stuff. I worked for the Boeing company for 35 years and they want first rate products every time, but the rv industry seems to lack this. Its what they pay people I think. Stand behind your guns, good luck. Pete

I was in the Air Force before working for Lockheed Martin for 13 years and also have a hard time understanding how some of these coaches are sold. Ours was missing an entire inverter and most of the coax cables were mixed up...so far. Not sure if it's how people are paid as much as how much they actually care. Some people are just flat out lazy and think the world owes them something. Most companies nowadays seem to have the philosophy of sell it and we'll fix it later. I believe it's cheaper that way instead of having to hire a properly outfitted operation.

petey - did you ever make it to the Mesa Apache facility in Arizona? I worked with the TADS/MTADS program and had to visit that facility a few times...pretty cool!

howdy: I never made it to Arizona<but was in Seattle a few times watching them install our landing gear beams in 737,757,747 airplanes.at our Boeing plant in Oregon we made landing gear beams, motor mounts, flight controls was on the landing gear team there. Back to people doing anything for me is a hard thing for me, because of the work they do,i always fix my own stuff unless I don't have tools to do so. thanks Pete
