2010 8281 ss furnace issue

Hi All.

We love our trailer but since new we have had an issue with output air flow from the furnace. Stat has a hi/low switch but motor never runs on high speed and last winter when we travelled down South it began to put out very little air at all from any of the floor vents.

Can anyone tell me if they have experienced this and what you did to get it fixed. I spoke with the dealer when I did my PDI and asked why it only runs on low speed and was told this particular model doesn't have a two speed fan and not it's almost a no speed fan.

High and low switch is only for the a/c from what I know.

Thanks. On our prior trailer hi/low worked for both. really disappointed with the output of heat in this trailer especially when we are on the road in the winter in colder climates and cant plug in and use our space heaters. Trailer does not heat up.

We often hear stories of disconnected air ducts which will mess up your air flow for sure. If you can, try to get access to the back of your furnace and follow the ducting to see if anything has come off of the port it's supposed to be connected to.

Thanks I will do that. Seems logical. furnace ignites and fan runs, just almost zero output.

I'm betting Barry is right one or more of the run pipes has came off.
