Heater size in XLR Thunderbolt?

After reading Issues with heating the Hyper lite I decided to look into the Thunderbolt heaters.
I checked the web site and the new brochure and could not find the heater size.
Anyone have the size of the heater in the XLR Thunderbolt trailers with the extreme weather package ?

I've been looking into this myself. It seems to be left out of all media. I'm bummed that I forgot to ask what BTU the furnace was when I drove 2 hours to check out a 24FQSL. Reading Play Hard's thread and how bummed he is with a 20 BTU furnace. I have a 30 in my current 221RBXL.

Thanks Bob!
The brochure does not spell out the size.

You will still need a small portable heater in the garage though due to the single duct and lack of floor insulation. What would be a great factory option would be to have the garage AC have a heat strip included to supplement the furnace.

That would be great to have a 2nd source of heat built in.
The garage has had the most complaints of being the coldest space in all XLRs. FR should create a option for a Roof mount split system,A/C-Electric Heat.

I think a heat strip can be added to the factory garage AC. I am going to investigate this option when I get mine home next week.
