Very Little Heat

Been doing some cold weather camping and noticed a significant difference in the amount of heat getting to the bedroom. Just pulled on another cover until I was finished camping for the season. Winterized this past week and pulled of the cover behind the docking station and also the bulkhead cover. Check out what I found:

There goes your heat. Not even duct tape used? Amazing!

There was about a six inch pieces of tape but it was placed on the flex duct with a small corner on the solid duct. It was enough to hold it until the heat softened the adhesive and the weight of the flexduct pulled it away. Plant inspection process needs tweaking.

That is why I posted it so I can be of some help to Prime Time to improve the quality of their product, not to start another complaint thread. I will repair it and check all the ducts and fittings behind the bulkhead.

Didn't feel you were trying to start a complaint thread - glad to have the feedback so we can get better.

Just a simple question. Is it common practice to only tape the flex duct connections? or did someone not bring the battery drill and 1/4" self-tapping screws in this coach?

Great question - this has been the source of alot of discussion at all of our plants the last 24 hours as we've found a couple of different ways that it's being done including running a self-tapper in some situations. We are reviewing all of our installations for a best practice that we can use across the board.
