Furnace duct outlets

2014 Berkshire 390 FL -- that has the L-sofa.

Under the sofa there are four furnace ducts. Maybe 2" in diameter when the sofa is folded up into the sofa position the ducts dump heat into the back of the sofa panel. Thus going no where except under the sofa. If you pick up the front of the sofa bed about 4" the heat rolls out fine??

Has anyone else noticed this ??

Yep. There is a previous post about this. My 2013 390RB has about a 3/4" gap between the sofa edge and the slideout floor edge from which the air discharges. I rerouted the lines so they don't get pinched by the sofa when it is converted to a bed. Also added some grey PVC couplings that I secured to that osb panel and then cable tied the ducts to those couplings. It improved the airflow but in my opinion it is a big disappointment.

Yes I must agree. We ordered a new sofa from Bradd and Hall and had them put 2, 4 inch vents on either end of the sofa. Much better air flow and a more comfortable sofa to sit on. We now have an air mattress for our guests to sleep on.

Russell I have the same problem with my 2014 390rb I'm thinking about taken the sofa out and putting in two reclinners and making some kind of vent on back wall because the way it is now is useless.

I just thought that maybe they forgot to finish mine?? Guess not. ?

Well the four ducts are there and they work great if you want the air all stuffed under the sofa. I guess I'll just figure a way to get them rerouted.

The two recliners idea will work and run the ducts along the wall and box them in.

Here's the old thread: Furnace outlets

Also, while we're talking about heaters, be sure the time is set on your thermostat. Doesn't have to be right, just don't leave it ==:== or things just won't work as they should.
