I would hope it wasn't engineered that way... maybe it was a crude way to avoid installing a properly sized unit... to make the main area warmer at the expense of letting the garage freeze.
Based on what our friend Dennis tells us, it has to be deliberate. Dennis, did you get the so called "extreme" package?
I actually blocked off the garage, prior to the mod, and the 19K would not keep up even if running non-stop. I am trying to remember but it was in the low 30s, the camper reached a little over 60F those nights. I sealed the garage interior door and had reflectix on ALL windows and those insulated vent pillows, by the way.
The garage needs two 4 inch ducts at a minimum, but of course useless with the 19K, but probably would be all you need with the NT30. How about using a Heat Wave 8K on the optional stand in the garage, which can move around with a flexible hose and quick connect (and valve)... you could even move it out onto the party deck for those cool evenings. The big patio heaters are gas hogs.
I don't think you will go through that much more LPG with the 30K; it will run a lot less, but since you can actually warm the unit, of course you will use more.
I haven't camped in the cold since the heater mod (made the return grill the supply and but the garage register are returns)... even if i'm at home, and it happens to get cold, I am going to give it a test.
To all who reads... I hope all ya'll had a nice Thanksgiving.
