You won't find a tougher built trailer for the money other than an XLR. Just crawl around under one and you'll see my point.

I looked at fuzion, Spartan, nitro and xlr yesterday at the rv show. For price, build quality and weight, I thinknthe xlr is tough to beat. Will be placing an order for a 2015 xlr 340x12hp here soon!

Had many trailers in the past but our new XLR 380 AMP is the cats meow. Would not change a thing about it.

We also really enjoy our 380 Amp. The glass makes the difference!

It sure does. My in-laws have property along the river and our trailer door side has always looked out over the river. Problem is that most of our other trailers had the windows on the opposite side of the door. It never really mattered to me but luckily my wife knows better. Ours does not have flood lights on the door side (but has led awning lights), and the bedroom does not get tons of heat from the heater. The warmest room in out unit is the half bath. I think the furnace must be under the stove so its a short, straight shot to the back bath. We joke we have heated toilet back there.

I agree it take of least resistance. .... or the shortest route out. We popped off the outlets and used aluminum foil to block and to manage the flow somewhat....

I was originally looking for an open close type of valve but could not find a round one. I will probably just cap it of somehow as the other closest outlet is in the garage and that one gives off tons of heat too.

I was thinking about this and I wonder if a gate valve like for fluid exhaust would work....
I was looking on Web and found several all different sizes.

We just taped the back with the aluminum tape and put them back in. So they look the dame but nothing comes out
