Yes but then you do not have a warm belly either?
The reason for the belly pans is to enclose so it will keep the heat in, and there is a lot of insulation above the pans, tes it is one more thing to go wrong, but it is also one more thing to make it fell more like home. Mine has them also, and yes i have had to fix mine, BUT not because of anything FR did or not did, it was because i needed to replace the sewer valve, and while in there i noticed the mice and made a house so to took all the pans out and redid the who;e belly. (My coach is on a seasonal site so mice are an issue)So to everyone out there it is not just a FR issue it is all coaches with heated bellies, you need to be aware of them being there and also keep an eye on them for dropping (drooping)
