Does the manual call it a sail switch? Are there any hoses coming off the inducer?

The attached photo is a type of sail switch used on some of the older furnaces. It is mounted on the exhaust side of the inducer and is usually wired in the limit switch wiring circuit. The "sail" sticks into the air stream to make sure there is adequate air present.
