Georgetown 351DS bathroom heat duct question

When running the propane heat the duct in the bathroom puts out very little air.
Just wondering if this is normal as the ducts further away from the heater put out less than the ones closer. I know I wouldn't want a great deal of heat blowing in that small bathroom but the heat coming out is almost none.
Just wondering how it is on other 351's

I also have the 351 DS and my bathroom vent outs out bery little heat as well. I traced the ductwork and it is exposed to the outside for most of the run from the furnace to the insdie vent. It also has some very sharp turns that are probablt restricting the flow some as well.

I put this on my punch list for warranty. In the end, they said they blocked some of the bedroom to force more air out into the bathroom. I have / had the same issue. It still doesn't push out a ton...

Thanks for the responses. I kind of figured that was the way it was set up. I don't mind it so much myself, but the DW likes it warmer. I would rather have more air flow in the bedroom than have dealer block that one to force more into the bathroom. I can always block one of the other ducts temporarily to force more heat to the bathroom if needed when it's more than just her and I.
I'm just glad that AC duct in the roof puts out plenty of cold air in the summer. Our last MH didn't have any ducts in the toilet area and it was always either too hot or too cold.

Don't have a mh, but did replace all the registers with the closable type which allows us to shut off the ones where we don't want air flow and open the ones where we do. We use an EdenPure and a switch to manually control the furnace blower without the burner being used.

337 will cook you out also, I think it must be the first vent on the run.

Installing adjustable registers is a good idea. On the 351 I think the bedroom and bathroom are the last two. Being able to close off some of the front ones when needed would be nice.

Can't complain about the heat in my 330TS either. When using portable heaters in the coach I'll still turn on the furnace when showering etc. because in seconds it gets nice and toasty in the bathroom.
