I have the original FF brochure from 2009 when I bought my trailer and it lists the furnace as 16K btu, most likely it was a Suburban. Like this: https://www.airxcel.com/suburban/pro...ies-medium-rvs

You should be able to download the manuals online.

do you dry camp at all? if not. i would not replace with the gas furnace. the thing is way too noisy for me. i have one similar to this when electric is available. https://www.amazon.com/Cadet-Com-Pak...s%2C225&sr=8-4

i use the propane when no electric is available. The noise drives me crazy and the blower can drain a battery quick.

we only dry camp.have a lake lot for 40 yrs. no water.power or sewer dump. been using a big old motor home with 6 2500 amp 6 volt batteries. we can sit for 2 weeks w/o starting a generator. has a 40 watt solar panel on roof. but like to tour up north with the 139 now. dont like driving that big old diesal on highway. wanders to bad in winds for me, and scares the wife.

There may be RV salvage yards nearby -- many of the components used by the manufacturers are stock items that do not vary much from one model to the next.

You can also bolt on scissor jacks. Camping World carries them.

I think the furnace vents are metal -- they get very hot!

Looks exactly like mine and our furnace is an Attwood on our 2002 T139. I found a replacement online that's the whole intake kit. Haven't been able to find just the exterior plate. If you're not trying to use the furnace a plastic cover would. Our exterior shower was scary when we opened the hatch so we replaced the whole thing with an exterior RV shower from Amazon (about $40), took a whole 10 minutes to remove, hookup, and reseal. Now it works like a charm and looks great too.

ken, the awkwardness of the 139 bed depends on who you are sharing it with! My wife and I have no trouble at all -- I climb over her, and she pretends to be asleep.

If there were two people in the bed who were not very, very close friends, I can imagine that it would be terribly awkward.
