Heater vent covering

Turned on the heat in our new fifth wheel and noticed that the front of the camper gets more heat than the back. Has anyone ever partially covered a vent? I thought about getting a magnetic cover and trimming it to cover half of the vent.

You can buy heat registor vents that are adjustable made for RVs. They are different sizes than the ones in your home. Most RV stores carry them. We changed out our vents to regulate the temps in our TT.

I use covers made from a magnetic sheet cut to fit (lightduty stuff from office supply). My goal was not temperature control, but to keep debris from falling into the duct during the greater part of the year when we don't use the furnace. They have worked fine but I think if we walked on them a lot it would cut them. Great if I am into a project and I am tracking stuff in.

X2 on adjustable vents, work really well to help balance the temperature front to rear.
