I have nothing but good thoughts for and thanks to our volunteer moderators. Apparently there is a lot of truth to the old saying "No good deed goes unpunished"

Since you asked. I have no problem with Jim, if you mean cpaharley. Always a positive.

But I can think of no better example of how poorly moderators serve the interests of Escape owners than Donna. When ETI announced changes to the furnace location in the 21 with resulting loss of storage, owners-to-be were negative. Donna immediately told the prospective owners they were wrong, that the changes were good, that they would like the trailer better. Luckily for the buyers ETI listened to them, altered the plans, and presumably reached a good solution.

Moderators are useful. Censors are not.

Blatant cheer-leading can be tedious. Another moderator lamented that the population of the forum has changed and the tone has become less convivial. To me, nothing is static and as Escape continues to grow and attract new audiences then they need to be accommodated- IMHO.

Omg! Seems to me that a moderators role is to help ensure that forum members play nice together in accordance with the rules of the forum. Being a moderator does not mean you cannot express an opinion, take a side, or heaven forbid say something that is not correct or is in contravention of some other forum members opinion. Take a deep breath people and relax. Life here on the Escape forum is much more civil than many of the countless other forums out there.

Some members should perhaps read the Community Rules. You will find the link at the bottom of this page:

Public discussion about moderation or moderator decisions is not allowed. If a moderator deletes or edits one of your posts and you disagree with the action, contact the moderator concerned. Do not repost deleted material.

I will leave it to another moderator to close this thread if deemed necessary.

Wow, that's not at all what I said. This is what I said:

Honestly, I think the new position is going to make the entire cabin heat more even. The furnace in the old position was under the rear dinette (?)

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

I'm wondering too if moving the furnace further away from the refrigerator will help with THAT issue. No, we're not going to start talking about refrigerators in this thread I was just merely thinking out loud.


And no, after Reace and Tammy announced the change in the first post... it never changed to something else:


Hello Everyone,

After two days of extensive research, trial and error, and several attempts at installing the furnace under the bench in it's standard location. We have resigned ourselves to accept the fact that the furnace simply will not fit under the dinette.

We have reworked the 3 - drawer cabinet located on the driver's side at the foot of the bed so that it will become a 2 - drawer cabinet. -


This is the thread: Furnace change on Escape 21 a shocker

Well, I still haven't figured it out, but it sounds like you have. Please enlighten those that haven't.
