Just bought a 2016 Wolf Pup. It's been 30 years since I trailered. Since I don't have the old 1977 Suburban to tow any more, had to go light with a 2007 Honda Ridgeline. As I get used to trailering again it's nice to have this forum to help with questions. Everything seems to be working, but this morning was cool enough to try out the heater and after a short while the smoke detector went off, NOT THE CO detector. Took it off the ceiling and put on table, and it didn't alarm. I'm thinking the heater has to burn off any oils from manufacturing. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
Welcome to the forum. You made an excellent choice by joining as there's a lot of info and great folks here to help in any way they can.
You are exactly right, new furnaces typically need to run a while with the windows open to remove the oils used in the manufacturing process.

Good morning and welcome to the forums from SW Idaho.
You are correct about the oil on the furnace metal ours went off early in the morning and scared the dickens out of us.
This is one thing your dealer should have covered during your walk thru ours did but with the information overload we forgot about it...
Best of luck and enjoy your new unit.

Hello and welcome from northern Arizona! Congrats on the new rig! Our very first trailer was a 2003 Aliner and we had that for 8 years before upgrading to a "real" trailer, although we really enjoyed that Aliner while we had it. Happy Camping!
