This is an email response from Jayco. I guess I will be getting the 3rd vent installed under warranty cuz my trailer only has 2.

Good Morning Steve,

Thank you for contacting Jayco customer service. I show there to be three floor vents in your unit. The underbelly is heated by ducting that runs through the floor. This option is available with the thermal package. Which your unit shows to have.

If you need any further assistance please let us know.


Sincerely,

Lisa Luce

2 vents just wouldn't be enough in a trailer as long as the 26BH. All 4 of ours are necessary IMO. I wouldn't want any less.

We didn't get the thermal package as it didn't insulate the drain valves or offer dual pane windows. We still wouldn't be able to camp in the winter with water due to the freeze prone valves from the waste tanks. Plus we would still need to purchase a small dehumidifier or open the windows slightly, due to the lack of dual pane windows and the damage the condensation would cause.

When we camp in late fall, early winter, we don't use our water systems but camp closer to the bathhouse. We also leave windows open on each end of the camper to get some air flow to combat condensation. Did the same with the previous pop up that had a full water system.

Wow, I guess it is only 2 heat ducts in the new 2014/2015 26BH and 2013 Swift 264BH. I looked at several pics and no where else do they have the heat duct except in the front bedroom and out of the sofa. Only superslide models get an additional duct in the bathroom. Not the brightest to have all the heat output on one side of the camper. Mom and dad will be sweating while the kids will be cold.

My FER40 has thermal package and 5 vents in the floor. Works for me.
Furnace is noisy though which we do not like. A/C is also noisy. Makes TV watching difficult.

Our 351RLSA has the thermal package and 4 vents in the floor. Same thing, furnace and A/C are quite noisy.

We can always turn the TV up, but it's difficult to go back to sleep when the unit kicks on and shocks you awake. LOL

Edit - I guess it has 5 vents. I forgot about the one in the basement.
