Furnace Question

Just brought the 3010DS home from storage.
I want to get it ready for the season.
Parked in my driveway there is not enough room to open the sides fully. Temperature is in the 40s and I want to run the furnace.
My question is, can you run the furnace with the slides fully closed.
I'm not familiar how the duct work runs.
Thanks for any help.

Yes, you can run the furnace with the slides in. None of the ductwork in the floor will be blocked. If you have the optional heat pump with your A/C unit you can also run it with slides in if you are plugged into 30 amp shore power.

The only concern I would have is not having the slide cover (block) the hot air register (outlet) as it does in our trailer. You might be able to slightly wedge something between the slide and the floor to allow the hot air to escape, I have done it successfully.
Of all the things I've lost in my life the thing I miss the most is my mind!

I run our furnace with all the slides in... All ducts are in a fixed area so it will not matter.
