I think this is the case in all motorhomes due to all the glass-windshield, windows etc as well as dash vents, lots of air holes to let the cold in. We use the fireplace and it gets toasty warm.

I'm not sure with your floor plan if you have any heat ducts that run through the slides, if you do, check them. We had 2 ducts running through our kitchen slide, one was crushed when the slide was assembled at the factory, the other was torn behind the stove, result was very cold up front and the bedroom was an oven. We fixed the ducts and replaced the bedroom heat registers with ones that you can adjust the flow from Home depot, the whole coach is now a pretty even temperature.

Same on our 374, not nearly enough heat flow up front, and way too hot in back.

I have not had mine for to long. One day while I was under my Georgetown i found one of the ducts had slipped off its connection and was hanging. Mine was one towards the back not sure if it is the same up front.

On our 2011 350 I block the heat ducts near the front to push more heat to the back.

Our 340 is cold up front. made some insulated curtains that hang from the visor mounts with velcro, and it makes a big difference. We still use a small heater up front.

Another idea for this is to put up a curtain rod and heavy curtains right behind driver's and passenger's seats.

Makes it easier to heat the living area since you're not trying to heat those big front windows as much.
Makes it easier to heat or cool the driving area with the dash air, when you're driving.
Makes it easier to drive at night. Person in back can turn on lights and it won't blind the driver.

Of course in nice weather you can tie the curtains back and they'll probably look pretty nice.

I plan to try to install a curtain like this sometime soon.
