Good thread, I am picking up my 2015 8289WS this Saturday and will check the heater and vent issue in the bathroom. The unit is right out of the factory so hopefully no issues

Even though we had a couple issues the 8289 is awesome to camp in and it pulls easy. The opposing slides and the way the entertainment center is setup create a comfortable and relaxing experience. We really like it.

Thanks Grandpa001, we currently have a Class C and every time we go out we have some minor issues with it. My wife really loves the floor plan on the 8289, cant wait to pick it up and get a few more weeks of camping in;

Old Coot, good idea, I will try that. We plan to bring it to the dealer next week. If the furnace checks out ok, I will put it in. Thanks

I also have the 2015 8289ws with the hot bath and hallway registers. I'm installing metal adjustable registers in both bath and hall way. Another concern is the thermostat is right above the hall way register giving a false temp. Not going to adjust them off, just turn them down. This should force more heat to the kitchen/living room area.

You can also disconnect the duct in the belly locker and root it through where the water pump is to give a heat sorce through the kitchen.

The vent in the under belly in our unit can be turned off, well almost off. There is a 4" X 1-1/2" T behind the panel that feeds the belly vent. T is in the 4" line feeding the hall vent. Be careful closing off too much, could cause damage to the furnace if it doesn't have enough air flow.

has anyone used the belly locker ducting and put it into the kitchen?
we have blocked the one on the stairs,and 3/4 blocked the one in the bathroom,
but getting it to the kitchen seems a good plan.
