no heat from rear furnace vent

Hi all, new rig in my signature and wondering if anyone had an idea before I contact the dealer.

There are two vents by the entry door and fridge and they blow lots of heat.
The third one is in the bathroom and does produce heat just not a lot, I assume this is normal because of the size of the bathroom.

Now the vent in the rear which is under the bed, doesn't blow at all. You might be able to feel something but barely a trickle of air, no heat for sure!

Any ideas?

OPPS, Maybe heat duct -----

Opps, maybe heat duct (hose) came apart or loose from the furnace or in the floor.

By the way, NICE looking rig you have there. NICE, NICE, NICE!

On my Flagstaff, the heat is directed through one 4" flexible duct; which turns corners and could very possibly get kinked off, thereby reducing the airflow through the pipe significantly. Kind of like kinking off a water hose that is running- very little if any comes out when kinked. Or it has a duct pipe off. I suggest locating the heater, and visually following the duct hose from it's source to the problem areas- you may have to remove a cover panel or a wall to see inside there for the problem. That is what the dealer will do, and charge you for the repair, not to mention the time without the unit. Happy hunting! Randy
