by the way, we have a dual zone stat b/c we have 2 ac's, but only one furnace. the round vents I was taking about were the ones under the cabinets, not the ones for the a/c on the ceiling.
You just wounder what that factory is doing sometimes, glad you got it all working.....

More then likely those all come off 1 run. It could take a little investigation on your part. Hope this helps, but it will stop your problem. Did HVAC for 20 years.....
That 20 years of experience paid off. You were right on I'd say.

Furnace ducting problem?

We have a brand new 2017 Wildcat Maxx 262RGX. There is plenty of hot air blowing through the vent in the kitchen area. There is very little forced hot air in the livingroom and zero hot air coming out of the vents in the bathroom and bedroom. In addition, with the furnace running, the underbelly of the fifth wheel is extremely hot. Big Country RV in Bend Oregon (the dealer) has been attempting to solve the problem for three weeks now, and has basically told us to take it home, they've done what they can. Seems like a simple ducting problem and an easy fix.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed with the manufacturer to get this resolved?

Thanks so much!

Lazy dealer.....had your problem with this unit.....found ripped ducts where they pass by the holding tanks.......replaced hoses..and still not happy.....the hoses loose too much heat thru the sidewalls of hose, so this summer will be replacing them with insulated type
