Changing furnace filter in 2017 3010DS

We accidentally left the paperwork for our motor home at home. Can someone please let us know where/how to change the furnace filter?

Thanks in advance.

Shirley

The only filter I am aware of would be in the AC/heatpump. That is a washable foam filter in the large return air grill in the ceiling. I have never seen or heard of a filter in the propane furnace. Subarbans manual makes no reference to one as well.

As far as I know, no RV furnace has a filter.

Suburban frowns on them but I can, with a little mod, have had all the need parts located, and for 8 years have been saying I was going to add one. I may still had one but still debating pros and cons. Suburban will say if U ask that the heater will not get enough air. They have a sail ??? that protects them from lack of air. So maybe I should give it a try.

Too much restriction with a filter. The factory folks don't even like the wasp/bug guards on the intake/exhaust openings. But then again, I guess if it's cold enough for the furnace, you don't need the guards . . .but I keep mine on cause it's pain if you lose one of the mounting springs. Only have the screen for the air conditioner/heat strip system.

Have you taken a close look at the wooden grille they put on the cabinet to hide the furnace. It sure doesn't allow a lot of air flow.

You're right

Not that I'm saying you could be wrong. . . The fresh air wood front isn't very large. But I guess enough air flows through to do the job. If I was going to put a filter in place, it would be behind it . . . Have a very Merry Christmas ! ! Here's to a new year of camping coming up.
