Crusader 290RLT Heating System Question

Does anyone know if the Crusader 290RLT heating system has a return air vent? The air conditioning system has 2 vents in the ceiling but I am unable to find any return vents for the heater. Was thinking I needed to clean a filter but can't find any to clean.

Thank you

There are no filters in the heating system.

Look for a section of louvers in the cabinetry, that is the air return.

Sort of think that model has the furnace under the sink area somewhere....

My heat return is under the stairs.

Heater return vent

Thanks Wildcat....If the louvers on the side of the sink under-cabinet are the air return then the air is flowing back over all the cleaning materials we have stored under the sink. That doesn't sound too good. It sounds like there is no filter that needs to be removed and cleaned. From another post it appears that other Crusader models have a return under the stepup. Is the lack of a proper return and filter a deficiency with the 290RLT model?

Thanks

No filter on the 320 heating, only filters on the a/c. Past camper (Keystone) was the same way.

The air conditioner in some PTM models is designed to help circulate the air in your unit if desired. If you prefer to not have the additional circulation, you can change the fan settings on your thermostat to AUTO while in furnace mode. Consult your Thermostat User Manual for instructions
