RE: Help with floor ducted furnace, lack of air flow

you could drill a hole in the duct work ,use camera then buy a plastic plug for the hole. How would you access any of the ductwork? As seen in the picture at the top of the post, the furnace unit sits over an opening (I assume) and feeds the below floor level ducts.

RE: Help with floor ducted furnace, lack of air flow

On the way home I had a thought. I should have removed one of the block off discs to verify air is pushing from the unit. That thought came after 2 hours of driving:) Those block off discs, are knock out plugs, and once removed will not stay back in. Be very careful what you use to push down a duct as it is quite likely you could poke a hole in it. Dusty Actually the plugs are discs that have an indexing tab and twist to lock. That is my concern about poking in the duct work. I assume to access the duct work you must pull up the floor? Lets not go there yet :D

RE: Help with floor ducted furnace, lack of air flow

Here is picture I found on the internet that is very similar to my trailer. The red line indicates where the duct runs down the center of the trailer and the 90 degree dashed line heads to the furnace under the sink/counter. No sure the easiest way to get the scope in the register opening, down and around to the furnace other than the wire I mentioned in the post above. http://www.fairlanet.com/images/duct.jpg

RE: Help with floor ducted furnace, lack of air flow

I had the same problem in a previous trailer. Plastic wire coil ducting had disconnected from the floor vent. Took vent out of the floor and reconnected. Might work for you. I have an endoscope that I use on my iPhone. I mainly use it for looking in car engines. I can give it a shot, it has a 5 ft. cord. I may need to put it on a rigid wire to fish it around a corner. I assume the duct directly out of the furnace goes towards the center of the trailer and intersects with the long duct down the center length of the trailer.

Help with floor ducted furnace, lack of air flow

We have a seasonal travel trailer at a site in Delaware. We went down from PA this weekend to winterize. Spent the night Saturday only to realize over night the furnace wasn't operating properly. the unit would kick in and it sounded normal with the fan motor but there was very little air flow from the floor ducts. The registers were warm but no real air flow. So I assumed since I heard the fan motor that I might have a blockage. The furnace is under the sink counter. I didn't take time to resolve or dive into the issue as we had to leave early to come home. So I took these pictures. It's all I can see from three vantage points. I'll assume by what I see is there must be a opening on the bottom of the unit that lines up with a hole in the floor to the duct work? Are these fastened to the floor or just sitting there? The one end is against the inside wall of the trailer which is the exhaust to the outside. Then it sits on the floor. I'd like to plan on pulling the unit out but I'm not sure what to expect? Are there any diagrams with typical floor duct installation that I could look at? We bought the trailer used and there are not manuals for any appliances. So I'm not even sure of the manufacturer of this? I know I'm not providing much info but that is all I got from the limited time available. Thanks! http://www.fairlanet.com/images/furn1.JPG http://www.fairlanet.com/images/furn2.JPG http://www.fairlanet.com/images/furn3.JPG
