I wonder where the furnace will be going in the 5.0TA?

Cheers
Doug

In Ten Forward, it's under the pantry.

The visual effect is not offensive to my eyes but I do understand the disappointment when something is going to be changed mid-course. The amount of time we spend thinking, visualizing, and planning our Escapes is almost beyond belief (just ask any family member not involved in this process). And then to have something change is almost heartbreaking. So I, for one, understand Bob K's feelings here but believe that by the time delivery takes place, happy campers he and his wife will be.

Wonder if that's where ETI will put the "new and improved" one...

Bad feng shui-has to be another option. Looking at that bank of drawers now and it is a great looking cabinet.

I went to the Atwood site and checked out the specs. Personally I'd be happy to have the new heater wherever it fits. The old style has been waking me up and drawing too much DC power for as long as I can remember.

Honestly, those that are buying a new build 21'... the furnance will now be more centrally located. Honest. And you may be worried about the visuals (I'm a VISUAL person), but this looks like a good decision. YMMV

Yah, gotta say, better position for overall heat distribution and more efficient, what's not to like.

Those cabinets are what looks so good when you walk into a 21'. That beautiful look is now gone. And the noise by the bed. Not in keeping with Escape's usual at all. One would think they could find a better place. That is a major change.
