Does the 2012 Georgtown XL 378TS have 2 gas furnaces?

Does the 2012 Georgtown XL 378TS have 2 gas furnaces?

I just added exterior mesh covers on my gas exhaust vent for my heater.
I just found two venst left of the entry door under the refrigerator and two on the drivers side under the stove.

Do I have two heaters or is the one on drivers side exhaust for the stove?

You have two furnaces the one under the fridge is controlled by the bedroom thermostat.
The one under the fridge is for the two vents on the end of the kitchen counter that is controlled by the thermostat beside the fridge.

Thank you. I figured someone with a 378 would know.
I have not seen any paperwork on either furnace in my package.
I will have to test them out next time it gets cold here in Arizona.

Thanks

Iggy, I know it doesn't get "that" cold in Arizona, but your rear furnace pipes hot air (no pun intended) to the water tank compartments to help keep them from freezing. If you only run the front furnace, no heat goes to those compartments. I don't know if this is true if you do not have the Artic Package.

Happy trails, Forrest

I do have the full artic package in my rig and also double pane windows just in case we get the artic freeze. The double pane windows I think are optional but I'm glad I have them here in AZ during the summer it can only help to keep the heat out.

I was also wondering about the 2 furnace exhausts on my "new" 2007 378. The thermostat next to the fridge doesn't seem to do anything but the bedroom thermostat kept the coach warm. Do I have a problem?

In my rig the thermostat at the Fridge controls the AC up front and the gas heater under the stove. It has 2 outlets onthe side of the kitchen cabinets

The one in the bedroom controls the one under the fridge and vents in the floor.

The one at the fridge doesn't do anything. I don't have the Arctic Pack, but I don't think that should prevent the furnace from running. I'll have to find what the problem is.
