Donna- while I realize that ETI had a tough choice to make given that Atwood stopped making a unit small enough to go in the rear area it is still less than optimal. Being more "centralized doesn't really matter when most people most of the time are going to be in the back of the trailer. Making the cabin heat "more even" is the same as above. The refrigerator comment was a stretch for sure.

Most people don't sleep with the furnace on unless it is really cold, and then- being in the back it doesn't wake Susan up.

Might have been best to just admit that ETI didn't have many choices and they did what they could or had to do.

One point in the furnace needing to be moved, is there's now more heat for the bathroom. I never thought having a furnace in the rear, under the table was a very good place to start with. So, at least I was honest in what I perceived.

I think it is important to keep a sense of humor at times like this. I wouldn't/couldn't be a moderator and the time and energy involved in that voluntary position is admirable! Back to the first post on this thread: I am quite certain that Leslie (The Old Bag) is still chuckling about all of this! I have learned (most of the time, anyway) that jumping to conclusions and public negativity usually backfires. A personal message asking questions might be more appropriate. Life is good.

I fail to see how comments regarding placement of a furnace have any connection to that persons role as a moderator. If someone disagrees with an opinion expressed by a moderator on any technical matter relating to Escape trailers, feel free to provide an alternate opinion, maybe you will be right. But don't misconstrue that moderators participation in that discussion as moderating.

LOL... And constantly griping is better?

If you consider when someone is pleased with a product and service, and says so on a forum dedicated to the product, as chearleading, then colour me proudly guilty.

Participation is optional.... Just sayin'.

Hey Jim- so you're saying I'm constantly griping? And if I don't like the blatant cheer responses after legitimate concerns I should just go away?

I have an idea. Let's just cool it okay? This is a great place to share information, ask questions and gain knowledge. Let's get back to that okay? This is NOT National Beat Up someone on the forums day.

Hey, positive note here!

If ETI is correct in telling me our trailer will be ready 3 months early (we hope, we hope, we hope!), then we'll get it in time for the Fall NOG in western Oregon! I'm reading that thread right now and will start researching camping sites next.

So, I ask that everyone send positive thoughts that we'll get our trailer in time and "The Trailer" will be there, along with the owners. And probably Lucy and Spike.

(We don't name stuff, so it's kind of tongue-in-cheek naming of the trailer. Yeah, my humor is kind of weird at times.)
