Normal Belly Temps with Furnace


Galway Girl

Recommended Posts

I’ve been camping in the Rockies this week and took some temperature readings with the furnace running.

I’m wondering if 100F temps near the furnace are normal?

I’ve checked the furnace piping/runs and no leaks or broken lines.

Here’s the data below:

I have 3 sensors -

1) Next to the thermostat on side of pantry

2) Under curbside bed near the water pump

3) Under street side bed near stabilizer jack pole.

When I changed the thermostat from 60F night setting to 65F at 6:15am, I noticed the temps near the pump climbed above 100F (red traces).

I think this is normal but thought I would check with others who have sensors.

@Galway Girl/Craig, could you please list the temperature sensors you are using to monitor the belly/bilge temperatures?  I may have overlooked them on your Amazon page.  These seem useful when camping in freezing weather to monitor the high risk areas, such as the external shower.  I have been contemplating some mods to improve airflow, especially to the street side.

Thanks, Don

I’ve added the sensors I use to the list here:

Oliver Outfitters Guide on Amazon

They can be attached in various places using a zip tie in the corner hole.

I’ll be adding one outside near my propatanks next.
