I have the same thing. It's like they drilled in the wrong place.

Dan I can get a picture tomorrow but it's on the passenger side of coach in the section that has the smaller of the basement doors towards the rear.

Why do you say that Phil ? I didn't turn the heat on and see if any came out, just figured that was near a chase of some sort. Must be harder to heat under there if all them spaces around the frame rails are left open.

Hey ! Who needs heat when they're in Florida ? lol

I see. I've crawled around in there and never noticed 1 in my 2014 390RB.

So I turned on the heat today and then got in the basement and sure enough heat was a blowing out of this hole. With all the gaps around the frame rails I had the heat was just going outdoors. Had significant heat blowing out , I'm thinking of trying to find a register that will fit the hole so that it can be adjusted if need be. By closing this down some you'd get more heat above in the living room. Just a thought.

Joe not necessarily restricting air flow can hurt efficiency since the furnace is sized to move so much air and upper limit can trip shutting off warm air to where you want it.
I guess if it ain't broke don't fix it.

Also some heat had to go into the basement compartments to keep plumbing from freezing you may have done yourself more harm than good be closing off those areas.

Well haven't done anything yet. Doesn't seem to be any plumbing in this section of the basement. Not sure that I would close it off, just adjust it some. With all the areas that I closed up down there seems like it would be fine with less heat, but I agree it would have to be monitored.

Heck I'm not going anywhere this winter just making conversation.
