Heater on a 21'

I have been reading the forum regarding the location of the heater on a 21'. Ours is scheduled to pick up Jan 2016, but hopefully will be sooner.

I have not seen a picture of the current location of the heater. Is ETI putting the heater in the original place, under the dinette, or eliminating the drawer and placing it there? Would we have a choice in location? We would rather not have the heater close to the bed as we enjoy a cooler sleeping area. Just wondering. We live in the Pac NW so don't have to worry about frigid weather, especially with global warming...!

It's in the nightstand; some have had the height increased to keep the 2nd drawer above the heater. The louvers on the grill may point toward the rear of the trailer - some owner may jump in or you could just call Escape on Monday and ask them.

Before you get too carried away and have your hopes built up, I suggest you read this thread. There are pictures and reasons needed for the change within the thread: Furnace change on Escape 21 a shocker

There should be no choice of location, because the location change was forced by the change in furnace model.... and the furnace was changed because Atwood has discontinued the old one.

The 21-foot is the only Escape model in which the original furnace location wouldn't work for the new model of furnace, so it's the only one which has had a location change. I'm sure that many new owners of the other models don't even realize that that it is a different furnace than previously used.

Here's a great picture some folks just posted (see the second pic):
Escapism: One More Sleep
..gives you an idea of how the new configuration looks. We don't have it but I think Reace did a great job (as usual)!

Kathy and Dave,
Thank you for the post with the pic of the new configuration of the heater. I certainly get the reason for the change but simply wanted to know that this was the most recent configuration. This really looks great, and I know that ETI will always do what is the most efficient and safe!
