364 center bathroom no heat

We went out on a our first adventure in our brand new motorhome and the only issue we really had that I could not adjust or fix is the heat vent in the middle bathroom and the hall had no air flow thru the heat registers.. I took off the inspection cover under the shower and the ducts looked ok there.. Does anyone know how the ducts are routed under the floor

did you have both furnaces on? or just the front one?
I think my bathroom and hallway heat comes from the rear furnace.

I have the same problem. I tried blocking several of the other vents to force air flow through to the vent--I think I noticed a trickle of heated air, but not much. It's on my punch list for the last round of warranty repairs.

It is the one item to be looked at the dealer on the 25th of March.. Hopefully the snow will be gone by then.. I am also having them change the oil

Wow--good deal. I have a whole lot of stuff on the list, but we're finishing up on the first year. Did my first two oil changes/grease jobs myself--once at home after our first two trips, and the other in a rather empty Walmart parking lot at 2 in the morning (once I realized that we were pushing the limit on our mileage between oil changes). I added one of the quick-change valves when I did the first oil change. It's easy to drain the oil, but a pain in the ^&*$ to put the oil back in. I tried one of the pumps but must have selected a poor model. I used a small funnel and piece of tubing--jammed the funnel behind the wiper arm and fed a clear hose (came with my drain kit) tube into the fill tube. Worked slowly but did the job.

I did a few other repairs but figured since it is mine I would do a better job than a dealer.. I dont see how folks can own one of these and afford it if they have to pay a guy for everything.. I usually do my own oil changes but since I will be at the dealer why not

Since I have to drop the motorhome off the 1st of February (getting close to the end of the warranty period), I started researching what needs to be done for winterizing. The pumps are both in the drop-down compartment on the outside below the bunkhouse. When I pulled the cover off (I hate those round access ports), I had a clear view of the water tank, both pumps the hoses and valves for bringing in the antifreeze, and (wait for it) a heater duct with an open port blowing into the compartment. Guess where the heater duct comes from? It comes from the front furnace on its way to the hallway heat duct next to the bathroom door (in front of the bedroom sliding door). So I'm guessing that most of the heated air that would go to the bathroom is lost in the water tank compartment.

This could be by design. Maybe the heat pumped into the fresh tank plumbing compartment works on gravity flow to heat the hall or bath. Not an ideal situation, but could be the situation.

Sounds like something came loose during construction. That isn't supposed to be that way.
