I can't see ever used both at the same time. Either one alone will provide us with adequate heat. Besides, I use under the dinette seats for storage, plus my batteries are on the passenger side. I was just thinking of keeping it centralized. Besides, all the power connections are there, I would have to fish in a cable in any other location. I would not use an on-off switch, but instead use a line voltage thermostat (that could be switched off) mounted right by the existing one.

Not sure which one you used Jim, I know you did tell us. This is the installation instructions for the one I plan to use, is yours the same?

Here is the one I used and you can add a switch between both heat settings

My Sweetie and I have our Escape 21 on order for a late January 2014 delivery. We thank all of you who've shared your knowledge and experience. The information you've provide had been a wonderful resource for our decision making process.

We visited Reace and Tammy in Chilliwack a week ago and as expected were blown away with their business model, commitment to customer satisfaction and dedication to providing a first class product. We will be very proud to carry the Escape banner as we travel North America

Here's a few images from the model 21. Enjoy!

Under bed access is via driver side hatch, by lifting mattress and by interior access hatch.

Battery is under starboard side dinette. Converter/charger and furnace are under port side dinette.

Thanks Merritt! Our hatch date is 1/28 and we were at the factory last week but I didn't focus on the under bed storage and where things are located like tanks and batteries. So we appreciate your pictures

Thanks Merritt,
Now if we can just get an idea of the storage options between the bath and door area, I'll be able to sleep better at night.

Storage between bathroom and Entrance door

I received two pictures from Reace of the storage he's offering. I'll try to post the pictures if I can figure out how to do it. There are 4 storage boxes mounted behind a wood face that extends from the floor to near the ceiling . They measure 9x9x6 each with a 3" lip.

These storage boxes are in black, but the installed ones will be in white.

Nice, I like that and it looks like if you wanted you could attach a couple of coat hooks along the far side if needed. Wow, I'm really excited now, sort of liking the black though, wonder why it will be white? Perfect for towels, wash clothes, toilet tissue and other toiletries.

It appears that the upper boxes are deeper and they get shallower as you go down due to the wall curvature. Still, another fine job from Escape Industries.
