Jayco Storage Area

Good Morning, We have purchased a used 2003 Jayco Eagle which has the rear storage area under the bed. This area of the TT seems to be alot cooler than the rest of the TT. My husband said there is no insulation in that area only the carpeting of the floor and that is what is makeing the bed feel so cold at night....Anyone else out there haveing this problem, or has anyone resolved this issue? This Forum is great for "Newbies"....Thanks

Our friends had a similar issue on an 09 and they ran a small duct off the heat line into that area as well as some rigid foam insulation glued to the celing in that storage area.

Welcome to JOF.

My husband thought of the foam insulation also, this should help if we use the TT in lots cooler weather, don't know about doing the duct off the heat, would this reduce the heat throughout the TT? thanks

It won't reduce it much since it is only a 3" hose. You just want to keep it above 45 so it,s not always freezing in there. The insulation will do most of the work and keep it from cooling down fast. There is only a piece of plywood now so amything above that helps. Try the insulation first then you can move to heat if you need it.

It could also be the type of mattress you have. I think our mattress on our hybrid is cold even in the summer. I found if I put a fleece blanked under our bottom sheet I am pretty happy sleeper.
