Salem LE 22BH Furnace (2007)

I am brand new to RVing and bought a used 2007 Salem LE 22BH. (The previous owner was unable to give me any guidance on anything.)
My question is about the furnace. The a/c is on the roof and is self explanatory. There is a thermostat on the wall that must be for the furnace. The camper has floor registers, but I cannot find the actual furnace anywhere. There are no access panels on the outside except for the water heater and the fridge. The only panel I can find on the inside is the fuse/panel.
Does anyone know where the furnace is located for this camper and if the furnace is electric or gas? If gas, does it self-ignite like the fridge. (I have to manually light the water heater.)
Any help is appreciated!

Look on the outside for two 1 1/2 inch holes close together, that is the intake exhaust for your heater. They are propane, and 12 volt only and consume a lot of propane.

Yes, I found and see the intake/exhaust, but still cannot locate the furnace itself. Still need to know if it self-ignites or has to be lit manually.

If you found the exhaust on the outside, what is sitting on the inside of the camper at that spot? Sometimes the fridge actually sits on top of where the furnace is.
