New Hurricane 34E Questions....Furnace Smoke and Water Pump?

Water pump: can anyone tell me where the water pump is on the 34E, also is there a filter for the pump that needs to be changed?

Furnace issue, reposted here: New Furnace Smoke....how long should it last?
Hello and thanks, well we just got back from our first two night stay in the hurricane,overall, we really like it. Lots of small irritants, a bunch of electrical stuff not working...no real show stoppers though.....we did have very cold weather last few days in Texas, and we used the furnace on and off continuously during that time.It produced a light misty smoke in the coach, and I know I have read many posts saying new furnaces will need time to burn off oil on their parts. but as of this morning, after running it for 2 nights, it is still producing the light smoke....not enough to set off the smoke detectors, but can see it hovering in the cabin.......we kept one of the fans on and bathroom door open and cracked a window to vent.


Thank you all for any assistance!

In your 34e the water pump is under the bed of course! Where else would you possibly install a water pump in a 35' motorhome?

It's also where you will conveniently find your water filter.


Your sparkly new furnace should certainly stop producing manufacturing-residue smoke after about 30 minutes of use. Open a window slightly, and use the central fan to clear out the smoke. You do not want to see or breath in any of that residue, (or at least make a habit of it). The dealer's often do this as part of their "pre-delivery". But, they didn't do it for me in Florida where I picked mine up, (it was 103F degrees, and 100% humidity), and they probably didn't do it in Texas.


I have only used my furnace a few times in the past year, (I'm in CA), since it was also sparkly new. It did smoke a bit when new, (but I never waited to SEE the smoke). It smelled a bit after it stopped smoking. But, eventually, it stopped smoking, (about 30 minutes), and smelling, (about the third or forth long-term overnight use about six months later).

It took about 45 minutes of running to clear it up. Ran it for a half an hour let it cool and than another 15 minutes

ok thanks, well even though we used it all weekend, it was cycling on and off of course with the thermostat....so maybe it needs a long, continuos burn to clear it up?

Yes, definitely. Crank up the thermostat to the max, and let it burn off for 30-45 minutes.

It's going to get HOT, so open windows and run the fans to clear out the smoke.

perhaps you should take off the front cover and shine a light in there to see if something is against the outside of the furnace - mine only smoked for a little while and cleared up within an hour.
