I had a mouse problem one year and they loved my furnace. It took quite a bit to get all the nest material out. I doubt you have the same problem.

You might want to make sure the pilot light is working good. If it doesn't ignite the propane (burner) quick enough, it may cause a larger than normal startup. If the furnace is generally running loud, it may need the bearings/bushings lubricated if it's possible. A dirty fan can also cause problems. If the dirt makes the fan out of balance, it will vibrate and make excessive noise.

My furnace is noisy. Nothing wrong with it. It's just loud. We're in a very confined space in a van. You're never more than a few feet away from anything.

I rarely need to use it though. We sleep in sleeping bags

Default Noisey Furnace

The gas furnace in our 2006 RT is noisey also, and there is nothing wrong with the furnace. The blower just makes noise that when in a small area like a B has will seem even louder. We did purchase a ceramic electric heater that we use when hooked up to shore power, it it is so quiet that we love it. But when boondocking in the cold weather, the gas is the only show in town. The noise is still better than freezing. Happy travelin!

Our furnace is real noisy too. We don't normally leave it on while we're sleeping. We use it to heat up the space before we go to bed, then turn it off and crawl into our nice cozy flannel double sleeping bag. We're all nice and toasty in there (with 2 humans and 3 small dogs) In the morning one of us sticks our head out and turns the furnace back on for 10 or 15 minutes before we get up. We've found that it heats about 1 degree per minute.

We've camped with temps outside down into the single digits and it has not dropped below freezing inside the RV. The coldest I've seen it is 42 degrees one morning when we were camping the last weekend in November.
