Thermal package

So even though I have the thermal package on my trailer the production line forgot to install ducts from my furnace to my underbelly. Contacted jayco and they told me the belly is just insulated enclosed. I then referred them to their own website description of the thermal package.
They have now authorized local dealer to install ducts to underbelly.

Anyone else have this issue. Was happy with my last jayco but this one is a lemon.

Still waiting for my special order 26BHS. How would I know if the duct is there or not? Does it go down near the heater?

I didn't. I sent jayco a question after a previous post on here about the infloor ducting after discovering that some units(of
My model) have 3 floor heat registers while others have 2 wall/couch vents. There isn't any consistency between them, so I thought it had to do with the thermal package option.
After a few emails with jayco warranty dept, my spec sheet on there end showed I had the thermal package but didn't show anything about 'heated underbelly'. So I questioned it against their advertised thermal package description and they agreed to add it.
I did look at my furnace(under my couch) and it only had 2 ducts coming from it( one for each of my vents ) so I knew right there that the underbelly wasn't getting heat. Hope that helps..

I have the Glacier package on my 24RKS White Hawk. The furnace is under the dinette seat near the bathroom. There are 4 ducts coming out of the furnace. One splits between the dining/living area and the bathroom (small duct to the bathroom), one to the kitchen, one to the bedroom and one goes through the floor right next to the furnace into the enclosed tank area.

Sounds like someone, somewhere, that knows nothing of this and assumes the tanks are heated could end up with a big problem

Wow, thanks for the info. I have the thermal package but have no idea if the enclosed underbelly is heated, or if it should be heated per specs. Guess I have some research to do.
Happy RVing
Jeff

Very good info. I have no idea if my underbelly has actual heat to it or not. I have five floor registers but I'm not sure if there are five feeds coming off the furnace or some of. The lines split. That is my fault because the furnace had to be removed to replace a control board and that would have been an ideal time to check how many outlets. I do seem to remember that not all of them were even being used. However, the location of the furnace itself tends to lead me to believe it would heat the underneath quite a bit just from the heat coming off it. Don't know if that is a valid assumption or not. We all know what happens when you assume something.
