Air Conditioning
Alliance RV main living quarters (downstairs) will utilize two “direct cool” Coleman air conditioners. These units are mounted on the exterior roof of the RV with a combination shroud mounted on the inside ceiling of the RV. We’ve opted for most of the RV to be cooled with these direct cool units as they are significantly more efficient than your typical ducted system. The front/upper deck of the RV will utilize a ducted Coleman air conditioner system. Due to the nature of the design in the front/upper deck containing multiple rooms and areas that can be isolated with doors, a ducted system is utilized.
Each air conditioner will be operated by its own individual thermostat.

Every Alliance RV will be heated with an SF‐Q series Suburban furnace that provides 42,000 BTU’s. An exterior access door allows for ease of service. The furnace is operated with the Airxcel thermostat that is tied to the main air conditioner unit. The main air conditioner unit is the control that operates the central air conditioner in the RV.


Operating the Furnace


During the initial firing of this furnace, a burn‐off of excess paint and oils remaining from the manufacturing process may cause “smoking” for 5 – 10 minutes.

  1. Stop! Read the furnace user’s manual supplied with the furnace.
  2. Turn the manual valve (if equipped) or the valve at the outside propane tank to the “OFF” position. Do not force
  3. Set the thermostat above room temperature to begin the blower operation. A slight delay will occur before the blower comes on. Allow the blower to run for 5 minutes for the combustion chamber purge cycle. If the blower does not come on or stops before the ignition cycle, go to shut it down and contact your dealer.
  4. After 5 minutes, move the thermostat lever below room temperature. The blower will remain on. Wait approximately 2 minutes for the blower to go off.
  5. Open the manual shut‐off valve (if equipped) or the valve at the outside propane tank. Correct operating characteristics depend on the valve being positioned fully open. Never attempt to operate with a valve partially closed. NOTE: This furnace is equipped with a valve shut‐off switch. If the furnace is started with shut‐off switch in “OFF” position, the furnace motor will run for 30 seconds, then shut off. During this sequence, no gas will flow to the burner and the furnace will lock out requiring the user to cycle either the thermostat or unit power to reset the furnace. Ensure the shut‐off switch is in the “ON” position for proper operation.
  6. Set the thermostat to the desired setting. If set above room temperature, the blower will come on.
  7. Allow 30 seconds for main burner to light after blower comes on. This furnace is equipped with an ignition device which automatically lights the burner. Do Not try to light the burner by hand.
  8. If the burner does not light, repeat steps 1 thru 8.
  9. If after three 3 attempts with no ignition, go to shut down and contact your dealer. Do not continue to cycle the furnace.

NOTE: If the furnace locks out, the blower will go off in 5 minutes and remain off until it is reset by reactivating the thermostat.

Operating the Furnace (Continued)

To Turn the Furnace Off

  1. Set the thermostat to lowest setting, then turn the thermostat to the “OFF” position.
