2016 23MBH Thermal Package Underbelly NOT heated

I was cleaning all the construction debris under and around cabinets tonight. Followed all of my ducting back to the furnace and not one of them has a tee going through the subfloor. I also found that there is ZERO insulation behind the black tank which just happens to be right underneath my bunks and water heater. So much for a heated and insulated underbelly.

I would suggest you go back to the dealer and ask him to rectify the situation. You paid for the heated underbelly and insulation, you should have it. Is there possibly another outlet from the furnace that puts warm air into the underbelly?

Wow! I think I need to check mine now. They're not using heating pads on the tanks now are they?

I don't think that package includes insulation. I have the Glacier Package and it doesn't have insulation. It does have the belly cover. I think it's ducted heat to the tanks. I THINK..

Not that I can see. However, embarrassingly I did find the insulation. The heat duct is definitely not there.

Call Jayco and they will authorize dealer to fix it/add it. Same thing happened to me.

Isn't your heat duct UNDER the subfloor? And hence, by it's location, it will heat your belly?

No, on the 23MBH all the ducts are 4" foil above floor. I would have much preferred in floor vents.

I've emailed them with photos. I just want them to send me the parts and I will install it; my dealer isn't all that great.
