Crusader 270RET Furnance

Having only been through a short winter after purchasing out Crusader, we did not use the Furnance very much until this winter. We are finding out or have found out, there are no floor outlets in the Crusader 270RET in the main living area, dinnett and sofa area slide outs. The only ones we found are both under the kitchen cabinet on one end. On a real chili night, we have been forced to use a small space heater to keep that area warm. The upstairs bath and bedroom is like an oven compared to the before mentioned area.
Cannot understand why Prime Time did not think of placing at least one floor furnance outlet further towards the rear this particular area, sure would make life a lot more pleasant.
Is there anyway a floor duct could be retrofitted in that area, it seems there should be enough floor clearance between the two slides also mentioned.
Looking for some Heat...

You might want to check if the duct work is hooked up going to the rear. My bath and basement was hot and the bedroom and rear area was cold. Found the duct work had come loose, shotty work when it was hooked up at the factory.

Maybe check with your dealer and/or PT. I checked the (285 RET) 360 video tour on PT's web sight and can see a heating vent in the floor in front of the entertainment center. Not positive about your 270 RET but, maybe they forgot to cut in a vent during construction. the duct could be in place just heating the underbelly. Just an idea to get checked out.

Duct

checked with a fellow 270RET owner, he has the same unit and problem..ours are both the same year and model..also Prime Time got back to me today, they have suggested we take them back to our dealer and have the floor duct installed, at our expense of course...If I had a nice warm warehouse to work it, hell I'd fix it myself..
Just another Boob by Prime Time to me..we have had many over the past year..
