I still say I would keep that progressive they put in. You got all winter to due your many mods. You know what you need and what you want for a top notch trailer and make it your own. This is not your First Rodeo. It sure is nice through hope you and Amy enjoy it. Hope you can find that extra kit that was mentioned for your JT'S. It would be worth it for the $20.00 bucks.It will not work right with out those brackets and brass inserts. There is an RV used parts just down from the Goshin fairgrounds when I was there they had stacks of rear stabilizers, I think that would be a great mod for you I still use mine after the 4 point levels me. I think it helps with the aft part of the trailer. ....
Kit on the way, ppl motorhomes is sending it free of charge.

When we factory ordered our Sabre DW was quite insistent on getting the fireplace. I thought it was more fluff than functional but was quite surprised and pleased how well it performs.

Less then 15 amps oc w.
I'll look at the manual tonight and let you know, since I don't have my ems yet I can't check "actual" amp draw.

Mine has 5 fan settings and a temp setting.

Iirc it's 4,600 Btu ?

The fireplaces are 1500 watt units.
Ohms Law
P- Power in Watts
I- Current in Amps
E-Voltage in volts

P=E times I then I=P divided by E.

Therefore, I=1500 divided by 120, so the current drawn is 12.5 amps.

We run Electric hot water, fire place and shut off to make toast or dry hair. Our Microwave shuts off the Fireplace all by itself. If we leave hot water on propane we can make toast stay warm and dry hair.

Clear?
