Probably something to do with the open fire in an rv, that would go up like a match.

It's not an open fire . it's in a wood stove . better and thicker box then the furnace tubes that have fire going through them in side the RV .

Has anyone modified the duct to the garage to make it a full 4"? If so, do you have any pictures/insight you could share?

I did the nothstar99 furnace mod and don't heat the garage unless I do it with an electric heater.

The mod makes the supply side of the furnace what was the return. This heats the main cabin well... blowing straight out from the furnace.

Does heat come out the floor vents with this change? Or just from the return?

Our Hyperlites (mine a 29HFS as you see) doesn't have floor vents; all supply ducts are cleverly routed through and within the main cabinet in the kitchen and bath... one facing the bedroom; facing into the living room; along that cabinet and below the fridge into bath cabinet register; then through the wall into toy bay to that vent. Clever but not enough vents, air flow or enough furnace BTUs. With the mod which makes the return the supply; I can feel the old supply registers acting as returns. But, air can get back via any opening into the cabinetry.

The mod is removing the supply ducts from the plenum; leaving them in that space, covering those holes, replace then return vent door with a register, while sealing the space between the plenum and register with aluminum and aluminum tape. All the heat gets to the room without wasting heat inside the cabinets, or within the ducts. I also blocked off the garage register entirely.

For me the furnace is for extreme (ha!) lows, with an electric space heater or two primary and a Wave6 backing them up or when not on shore power.
