Re: furnace ping
I've found the solution to sleeping through the thermostat clicking on and the furnace and fan starting up is a small, silent, oil-filled heater when AC power is available. When it isn't, lots of covers on the bed. And the thermostat turned way down or off.
Any sound in a small space is amplified.
If you hear a chirping noise from the furnace fan, like when it is shutting down, and if the furnace is still under the two year warranty, take it in to a warranty service depot ( most RV places ). It is the "life-time, sealed, lubricated" bearing that is dying. Cost me nothing, but would have cost $209 to have the motor replaced if it hadn't been under warranty. Apparently, the furnace manufacturer will not replace the motor under warranty for a second time. ( I thought I detected a squeak in my new motor, 23 months after it was replaced - I inquired ).
Apparently, it's not my life-time they refer to when describing the sealed bearing.
