Hot Heat from Doghouse

Get 1/2" Hushmat with reflective aluminum surface and apply it to the Doghouse and area around engine under RV. It makes a difference on heat and noise.

My Georgetown has the same issues. HOT Foot near gas peddle. I adjusted the latch because it keeps jumping open. I am in the process of installing 1 inch Duct Board to the underside area of the engine. I will hold it up with galvanized screen, large washers and self taping screws. The engine cover is next in line for help.

X2 RJJ..I always leave on until I store the coach at the end of a trip or put in storage and same for my propane unless I gas up. This way I find I don't have to remember what systems or are or off as most are on auto like the fridge. Just find it easier that way and coach batteries/inverter are being powered as we drive along or power up at a park.

For the heat coming from the gas pedal area I found several large hole in the firewall that I put silicone chalking to patch up. This made a huge difference. This patch job was one of the few quality issues not done at manufacturing.

Although we have never tried it ours says it shuts down at a 1/4 tank to prevent you from running out of fuel in the middle of nowhere. Pretty sure we have passed the 1/2 tank mark and not had it shut down.
