Front heat ducts

Hello all. We have a 2013 390RB and I have a question about the front heating ducts. Because our loveseat is not a "sleeper" our heating ducts are actually in the base of the loveseat. For those of you that have a sleeper there, where are your front heating ducts located? -Glenn

If you are referring to the furnace, the front duct is under the kitchen sink cabinets.

Our furnace ducts are in the center of the coach just behind the driver and behind the copilot seats. The couch/sleeper is in the slide so no duct work.

Our front furnace in the BH floor plan is in the base cabinet under the stovetop. The heat is ducted from under the love seat.

Glenn, my front furnace heat ducts are in the base of the love seat also. From the previous post, it looks like the ducts vary with the model year and layout. I put a divider under the seat to coral the ducts and also with a hardboard cover. This provided a little storage.

Thanks all. We are contemplating adding a sleeper loveseat (which I believe is somewhat standard in the 2013 RB). I am worried about potentially having to move the furnace heat ducts and if the windshield has to come out to replace the current love seat.

Front heat ducts

We do not use the headers if we do we set them at 50*.. 95% of the time we use the to head pump in the A/C . The floor head is secondary to the heat pumps.
Save propane.

If you camp at temps below 40 you'll need the furnace the heat pump can't extract enough heat from the cold air. And the furnace on ours automatically switches on from heat pump at 32 I wish it were possible to reprogram the thermostat to do the switch over at 40. We have electric space heaters for those temps to save propane when we are on full hookups.
