Re: Suburban furnace shoddy factory installation by Dale
Post New Message Thanks for your reply. You did mention that you use SS band clamps for this type of repair, is this a common problem you run into? I already used some galvanized straps to make a stand that fits under the back of the furnace to level it and to mount it to the floor to prevent movement. After doing that I noticed the intake and exhaust pipes from the outside now line up exactly the width of the pipe too low and to the side about 1" or so. Plus the pipes are too long and will need to be trimmed down an 1" to 2" at a minimum if I move the ports on the outside of the trailer (the exhaust overlap now is about 4" which only 1.5" is really needed per the manufacturer). Since the furnace has an intake fan to draw the fresh air into the burner and force the exhaust out, do you think it will be that sensitive to a jog in the pipes that goes up 2" and to the side 1"?
