Because we camp a lot in the summer when it is very hot and the A/C does not have vents in the bathroom, in either our 2552 or the old 2350, we learned to leave the bathroom door open or at least cracked open. We started doing this to allow better air circulation. We now do this in the winter also. When we take showers the heat from the shower keeps it warm in there. We do close the door for showers and when using the toilet for number twos.

In the 2552 the heater vent in the bathroom blows right on my right leg. It can really warm. The vent can turn to allow some directing of the air. You might want to check your vent to see if it can turn. If not look into getting a new vent that does turn. It is easy to replace vents. you can find them at most RV supply places like RV dealers or Camping World. A call to Phoenix might help get you one also.

Paul, I don't dry camp often like you do, but do have to occasionally use the propane furnace, and I had a problem with the aim of the furnace vents which happened to shoot hot air directly at my dog beds.  Relocating the vents wasn't possible, so I found a solution to aim the air right/left instead of straight ahead.  I found a dryer vent cover at Home Depot and it does the job perfectly. (I threw away the inside baffle doors that came with it).  It protrudes 2.25", so if you have that much clearance between your vent and toilet, maybe this will work for you.

Yep, a small electric heater is perfect and we have carried and used one for years except.............most of our camping, probably 95%, is boondocking.  You simply cannot and do not want to fire up a generator early in the morning in a National Forest or BLM or CoE campground.  That is what you go to those places to avoid:  noise!!   So, the propane heater works great for us.  By the way, a tank of propane lasts us two weeks easy without hookups.  Refrig, water heater, forced air heater all can last a long time with good propane management.

What appealed to us about the 2350 is we can take it where we really want to go and live "off grid" for a couple of weeks at a time.  In the West, virtually all NF/BLM campgrounds are fine with you "dripping gray" because of the long term drought situation.  The big black tank can last two weeks with good management. 

So, when you are at 9000 feet on a July morning and it is 34 degrees, the propane heater gets to be a nice thing to utilize.

Soon where did you place your towel bars?

I know that this reply is not directly applicable to the main subject here, but I want to give my point of view on the 2350 vs the 2552 shower.  We had a 2350 before we purchased our 2552, so I've experienced both.  Maybe it's because of my size (only 5'6" and 138 lbs.), but I much prefer the shower in the 2552.  There's plenty of room inside for a great shower and I prefer the hinged door rather than the accordion one.  I do like to open the door to make more space when making my final towel down before stepping out of the shower.

Agree with Dave.  a small space heater is perfect.  I used one all winter, as the 2100 has no heat vent in the bathroom at all.  Unless I'm dry camping or it's extremely cold, I don't want to use propane. Of course I camp in the south, so my heat gets light use.

Paul,

We have a small electric space heater we set on the floor in the bathroom. It does a great job keeping the bathroom warm and takes up very little room.
We have another small heater we set in the front of the coach. We rarely use our furnace even when the temperature gets well below freezing.
Another reason we like the space heaters is because they are very quiet.
I don't think moving the register in the bathroom is going to make a considerable difference.

The heater outlet (register) in our 2350 is small and is located immediately behind the commode.  It does a poor job of distributing any air in the bathroom area.  Has anyone modified/moved this outlet?  I pulled the mattress and the strand board that supports the mattress and took a look at the pump, a crimped line from the fresh water tank, and this outlet layout.   Fixed the crimp and decided the pump was for another day of adding a small pressure tank to reduce cycling.   To move the heater outlet there are at least three problems: 

                        1.  You just about have to pull the stool.  Not that hard but not that pleasant a task
                        2.  There is very limited space to move the outlet to the right or left sides of the stool, moving it towards the bathroom door as far as possible would be the most effective.
                        3.  Repairing the hole from the previous installation, which would probably just consist of cutting a little square face plate to cover it up.  No big deal....

Anyone done anything like this on their 2350?  On cold mornings, there is just not sufficient and properly distributed air to be effective.   I can't imagine why it was located where it is and what the reasoning was in doing so.

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions. Some of them work better than others in the 2100, which is a very small unit, but they're all interesting and informative. I'm so glad we'll be able to continue counting on you guys for help and suggestions!

I have to admit I have not found a spot I like for the toilet paper or the hand towel, so they both sit on my bathroom countertop.  I did put two big 3M stick hooks on the shower wall to hang towels.  I understand the reluctance to drill holes when you are trying to figure where you want things.  I have moved hooks multiple times before I settle on the perfect spot.  That's why I use the removable stick-on, because they really do remove without damage.
For the towels I used the 3M adhesive tape hooks on sliding bathroom door and use a round curtain rod to the towels.  I have two sets, one below the other, spacing out the length of the towels. works great.  For the toilet tissue I mounted it just above the heater vent  in the corner which faces the toilet.  that works too.  Hope this helps
