Heating

Hello,
I Purchased a 2008 31B and used it last week while hunting. I am very pleased with the room it supplies, the only problem is that I could not get any real heat out of the vent in the main area. There was lots coming out in the front bedroom and back bedroom but none in the main area which is closest to the furnace. I looked to see if there was any flaps restricting air flow but saw nothing. Asked dealer but they really did not give any solutions to the problem. I've been in other TT and there has been lots of air flow out all the vents. Any advise will be appreciated.

the air ducts may have come loose.
try pulling the registers and verify they are connected to the ducting

You might check the furnace plemun as well. I've seen some units leaving the factory with one or more heating ducts not hooked up to the plenum, so that there is no fan forced air flowing though.

Sounds like the duct is blocked, disconnected, caved in or otherwise. If you can't see into the duct from the vent, try sticking a small digital camera down it and snapping some photos. (or video cam) You can see down all your ducts that way and possibly see any problems.

Another possible?
In the KEYSTONE OUTBACK line, they put water tanks by the floor ducts. When the water tank was filled, it squished the ducts and permanently restricted air flow.

We are talking about floor vents right?

One other thing you can try, block all your vents accept in the area where you do not have any heat to see if you can force the air in that area. I do not know how your duct work is set up in relation to your heating system, but my heating unit is located in the middle of my camper and the duct work is tee'ed off. If you can't force the air in the problem area then you will need to go to the next step, If you can force the air to the problem area then it is most likely an engineering problem, I see this alot in my line of work. Good luck I hope it is something simple.

Still had no luck getting air flow out of my vent in main area. Nothing seems to have the duct plugged. I haven't closed off the other vents to see if air will be forced out into the main area. I also have not taken down the layer of insolation under the rv to check and see if the ducting is apart. My heating unit also is loacated in the middle of the rv.

The further I am from the unit the less flow I get. Bedroom much cooler than the bath, I have checked for obstructions and there are none. When I get home I am going to research adjustable registers to balance the flow on my unit.

Just my 2 cents.
