See specs.

Great data provided for troubleshooting by SWCO. I think you are on to something. Suburban has the same numbers.

What size are the plastic vents in the cabinet underneath the 19’ Escape queen bed? Is this a new modification offered?

They’re an off-menu item that historically ETI will do if you ask them to. They’re 2” diameter. It’s much cheaper to buy and install them yourself if you want to save a few bucks: Maurice Franklin Louver-2" Round Brown Polypropylene Plastic Louver with Insect Screen System (Priced Per Bag of 6). 2" PLB-100 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AFESESG..._V030BbXJ79SGP

You'll need a hole saw, of course.

Or one of those Swiss Army knives with the saw and a lot of time. Maybe a fun project while camping

Wondering if these actually do any good? Was thinking of possibly putting a couple in the under dinette storage where all the electrical gear is located. Just installed a 2000 watt inverter in there that could generate a bit of heat. Under the bed though... any experiences with these? Thanks!

I would think that a quiet 12v fan would work better. This would look OK.

We’ve had our vents in all the cabinetry since new, so do not have direct comparison data for with/without performance. Condensation in dead air spaces is real so must be mitigated one way or another. Even if hear don’t do much good, at least they can’t hurt.

For the underbed area specifically, I plan to install two small fans that will draw air from under and around the mattress down into the underbed area. Mattress is sitting on top of hypervent. Air should be expelled into main cabin via the door vents. I’ll post pics when I get around to putting it all together.
