I've seen heater exhausts installed under the van, but those were diesel fired. Suburban's normally have the intake/ exhaust out the side. You mention "replacing" the thermostat, and also "I don't see any evidence of anything resembling a thermostat" Could you clarify exactly what you installed? You can also follow the line from the propane tank, if you have a heater, there will be a branch to the stove, water heater and furnace. Meanwhile, I'm considering upgrading to a diesel heater and may have a Suburban propane for sale. It works just fine, but is a bit underpowered for those days when the temps go below 0........

I had issues getting mine to start and ended up finding a Suburban rebuild kit. After doing that if fires up right away every time. It was really easy, it even came with a cd-rom step by step but I didn't even need it since there really aren't that many parts to the system.

Yeah, sorry - mentioned that above. Type. "anything resembling a furnace or outputs. Keep me in mind if you do end up selling it. I figured maybe there was some other config here, but I did a little more digging into the original paperwork (it was purchased from Indiana SMB) and no heat option. Again, I thought it strange but this thing originated in Delaware and maybe the A/C was the primary concern. It is in Colorado now at 9200 feet so some early morning heat would be much more appreciated than A/C, but oh well.

I'll have to check my gas line situation as I see there are some relatively inexpensive new heater options:

But if there is no heater I'm doubting anything got stubbed out to the passenger dinette seat to make the job easy.

Thanks for responding.

Geez, I'm fat-fingering this thing right and left.

Typo. " "anything resembling a furnace or outputs."
