Are you sure they are heated basements? I haven't seen any open ducts to heat the area.

Look around real good. Mine is older but has a heat register in the duct and also vented areas under the steps for air movement in the storage area and down in the holding tank areas.

The storage area in front is insulated and sealed from the other big storage area. This is where a generator would be mounted.

I will have to check it out, but I think I would have seen it already

Perhaps someone who has been to the factory and paid particular attention to that part of the process could chime in? I just looked in my basement for vents/ducts etc. There are two rather small openings in the wood roof (in the middle of the basement at each end) where I can see that shiny round flexible duct stuff (like used to vent a dryer). I keep my indoor/outdoor thermometer probe in my basement and as I am sitting here it is currently 68 inside and 53 out (in the basement). Weather.com says it is 53 outside where I am at. Guess my thermometer is working right. However, I have had heat on this morning and I reached up and felt that ducting and it didn't feel warm so...???? I still love my Eagle even if I don't understand absolutely everything (yet - working on it).

I have a 3" duct just lying loose behind the basement wall and the top of the basement wall is open but the front of the basement wall to the front compartment is sealed

I don't believe the point of heating the basement is to keep it as warm as the living quarters. Just enough to keep things from freezing.

For what it's worth, I camped in mine over Easter weekend. It was around 20 degrees at night so the furnace was running a bunch. Come morning when I got ready to leave, I could feel that it was noticeably warmer in the basement when putting my stuff away so heat must be getting in there.

I have submitted the pics below to Jayco rep and will now wait and see how he responds. My feeling is that if Jayco was going to slap the Climate Shield sticker on my trailer, they could at least have these areas insulated. I'll keep everyone posted.

My 2015 Eagle does not have the insulation in the basement, but it does have vents from the furnace warming the area.

My 2016 has the insulation in the front basement, but not in the back storage under the bunk area. I am curious as to what they are going to tell you.

Your picture look precisely like mine which also has the Climate Shield insulation package.

That IMO is why they don't insulate interior walls.
