Thank you Steve. I didn't mention it, but I did ask for it quoted with hardware.

If you want to pay for the door I can get it for you when we pick the trailer up right before the rally in May. York is not that far from you then. Let me know your decision.
Jim: Thank you. That is a very nice offer. Let me see if I can modify the 8"x15" door I have on hand first and I will let you know.

At that price I am going to first look at the feasibility of cutting out a middle section from the spare upper cabinet doors I have and glue it back together. I believe it is already the right height. I just need to reduce the width.
I think I would cut center of the existing end joint (in red) carefull to stop once through the outer frame. Then reinstall the end board with screws and glue once the center board had been cut to size.

Or for those that don’t have a spare door...go to a used building supply store and buy a vent. Then paint to the colour of your choice. This NuTone one is a nice size at 8.5 w x 10.5 h ...probably from a bathroom fan. This one is aluminium so you would have to use double sided tape to hold on the little steal plates that come with magnetic latches to hold it on secretly. A fake knob in the middle that original held it on would make for a good handle to remove it. Everyone will be impressed that your Escape came with ducked heating.

That is exactly what I will do. Thanks!

Doing some design contemplation prior to cutting my way in...
On an E19-Gen2, what is the footprint size wall to wall of the space under the heater please? Besides wire, which can be extended, is there anything else to be dealt with or which limits width or depth?
Thanks! Doug

The best thing to do is remove the detector and look in the hole yourself.

On my 2018 there is a gas line to the left and a sewer pipe to the right. To get the largest opening the door would be taller than wider.

If you can wait...there will be a full write up in Modifications to Eggscape by this time next week. I would suggest that anyone with a late model drag their feet and not order a door or cut any holes just yet.

Just remember, each Escape can be a little different. Sometimes it can be an installers change, sometimes it is a measurement change, but each one is hand made inside.
