It will be at the discharge of the blower, between the blower and the hot air plenum (the hot air plenum is the "box" that has all the heating ducts running from it).

I had a similar problem when l first bought my 2016, it would come out hot and then turn cold. The dealer changed a computer board. Hope this helps

They're all different. Go outside your MH and look for the air intake/exhaust. Should look like two holes about 2" in diameter, one above the other, made of metal (they're usually chromed). The furnace will be directly inside the coach at that location. Typical locations include inside dinette benches, behind panels under the fridge or in a closet. Somewhere there should be a relatively large return air grill. Look for that. The only pic I have of one is from my Roo 19, which was in my dinette bench. Maybe it will help you. You can see the large return air grill on the front of the bench. It looks like a hinged cabinet cover with a black mesh on it. Some grills are made with wooden slats.

Most furnaces are Suburbans. I've attached the manual, which refers to the sail switch, but doesn't really show you where it is.

Thanks so much! Mines under the fridge. I'll yank the panel and with a flash light I'll see what l can see. Thanks so much for all the info. My coach battery's after sitting for a while show about 12.54volts. Is that to low a reading?

Yes. They shouldn't be any lower than 13.2 volts.
