Floor heater vent for driver

We have a Gtown 360 XL 2014. Coming home this past weekend in cold weather my husband froze. I kept telling him he was imagining cause I couldn't imagine a vehicle without a floor vent since there is one on the wall very low on the passenger side. We have both searched up in front of drivers chair and other than the vents in the dashboard, we could not find any that will hit your feet or legs below your knees. What's up with that? Anybody invented a wheel already for this problem?

In my 2012 the only vents out of the dash are the two defrost vents at the front window and 4 adjustable vents coming out of the dash knee height that are swivel balls. That's it.
If you are expecting one lower like a car they do not exist on the Georgetown.

Guess that's something we gave up when we traded our Bounder in that we did not realize. And like I said there is a vent on the passenger side. Maybe FR will take the hint.

I'm sure a little Yankee ingenuity could be applied and installed with not too many problems.

The 351s have them. At least ours does anyway. Drove to Myrtle Beach yesterday and had them running. After reading op's post I just climbed under the dash and verified. Passenger side is pretty obvious, drivers side is little harder to see but both blow good and strong straight down. Don't understand why one model would have them and not the other.

When selected on the control panel, my 2012 378TS has registers that will blow heat down from behind both sides (driver/passenger) of the dash.

You are absolutely correct. You made me have to look and take a picture.

Thanks to everyone who responded. Based on the picture of the actual vent posted we were able to find our vent. It was up high in the dash. We will reposition it so it will be functional. Once again the forum has come through because of all the good participants.
