Thanks for your work!
We will soon be finalizing the requirements for a new 5.0 TA. I for one will request that no paint be applied to the heater grill. I have had a number of RV's over the years and after a few years around the block with some of the older units even the stock coatings begin to have issues. I too am in to resto-rodding and any time I need to fabricate a bracket or accessory I try to use aluminum or stainless. I wish the manufacturers would do the same (although we would have to pay for it). Paint and painting sucks for the home enthusiest.

Regarding the location with respect to being an eyesore, does it matter if its the first thing you see or the 5th etc. Pretty much anything in an Escape can be seen at some point. Just for fun, the first thing I see when I look down by the nice aluminum wheels on my trailer is the sewer outlet. Maybe Reace could put that under the dinette.

Agree that painting sucks; am doing window sills now- the process always takes longer than you think. Probably a stretch to think Dometic/Atwood might offer some color options of their own- but it never hurts to ask.

It's like living close to an airport or railroad tracks, after a while you just don't notice it

Wow so much about one little item. Lots of fun and humor. Can't wait to meet some or all of you over a nice Cab or JD among big trees or water!! We get our 21 at the end of March and can't wait! Cking all the pics that some of you have posted. Our new hatching is the one Reese posted with the new vent!! Ex Casita 17 owner then a stick built so glad it's coming all back around to Escape. Still have a couple of sailboats so we know how great fiberglass is!!

Love my 21 too Donna. Just went out to check out heater; came home at 6 PM, outside temp is 55.(Not trying to brag- wish it was cold & rainy!)Turned on heater then went inside for a few, came back out and sat at dinette.

Am grateful the heater is in the back as my feet were warmed up quick. Not one to openly say "I got mine", but am sad for those who may not have the optimal location for the heater which is in the living area!

I wonder what number ETI is at on their 21 today, I think they have quite a few on order. Loren

Actually no I'm not the reason. Just totally trust Reace and and Tammy. I have not heard one bad thing about ETI ! It's people like you that have given us such great feedback. I really can't wait! We will pick up the trailer in Wash then drive out to Boise to the Treefort Music Festival which my son's band will be playing!!! Then head back to too sunny Cali��
It is a lot of posts for something seemingly so inconsequential.,!!??
