Furnace Crusader 315RST

I'm in the process of putting together a list of amperage loads for the appliances in our 2015 Crusader 315RST. I'd like to put in a 6 volt battery bank in the spring so I'm trying to do my homework over the winter months. The manual that came with the unit is a generic Atwood furnace manual that lists all models under the 8500-iv furnace. Our unit is in stoage for the winter so getting to the furnace is going to be a bit of a problem. Does anyone have a similar unit that can help. Thank you!

From what I remember on mine it's a 30k btu heater. Pretty std in most 5th wheels this size. I'm not sure of the amp draw from it, mines currently at the dealer so I can't help to much

Thanks for the info. I think I'll be able to get the specs off the furnace later this week. I want ot check on the camper as we're expecting a pretty good snow storm tomorrow.

Hi Jim,
I own a 325RES, and I did check the amount of current the furnace was drawing, at start it draw 8 amps for about 3 sec. then stabilise at 6 amps all on the 12V battries That is the FAN in the furnace drawing that much current.
I haven't chech the model of my furnace, but it's probably similar.

Jean
