I have a (Duo Therm 66012-005) furnace
under the curb side settee of my Trillium
1300. Also, I have built a semi permanent queen size bed which makes the furnace
difficult to access. Lighting
the pilot on the furnace
is at best an ordeal, but if the pilot blows out on the road or you need to shut the propane
off, the ordeal is repeated. I thought about adding an electronic igniter, but that still leaves the issue of standing on your head under the bed to turn and press the knob in order to latch the pilot on. Lately I have been thinking about fabricating levers and pulleys to control the knob remotely, and it may come to that.
Does anyone have any ideas of what modern electronically ignited (no pilot), type furnace might fit, or any ideas regarding conversion of the old Duo Therm to a modern no pilot system? Once lit the Duo Therm works very well and I have resolved the air distribution, so I'm fond of the old beast, except when the pilot needs relighting.
