2005 31 RKT; is yours the same?

Over the years I've noticed that the kitchen floor feels nice and warm when the furnace is running. The trailer has one heat duct near the door, one in the bathroom and one in the bedroom. I always thought there should be a vent in the rear kitchen area to heat all that space. That got me to thinking about that warm floor. I removed the living room duct cover and ran a tape measure down the duct work towards the back and sure enough the duct runs all the way to the rear. Did Forest River forget to cut an additional hole in the duct on my trailer? I'm just curious to find what others have. I do realize that often times the RV manufacturers will use the same base frame and mechanical components for various trailer models. Depending on the feedback I get I think I'm going to add that 4th register myself.

2000 Ford F-350, AT, DIY intake, 4" turbo back exhaust, triple gauge pod, sonnax/tricumulator, aftermarket diff. cover.

I have the Hardwood Oak floor , and have a Vent back by the cabinets, near the fridge, near the door, one upstairs by the bath, and one in the bedroom.

But, the two in the "Kitchen , living room" put out the most heat. My one by the rear, is in direct line, with one by the fridge.
