Add heat register in basement

I have a 2016 Sierra 355 re. What I want to do is cut a hole in the basement floor and add a vent off of the heater to warm the underbelly. My question is where to cut the hole in the basement floor. Thanks in advance.

My first question is why?

I am assuming that you do a lot of below freezing camping???

If not it would not be necessary. Personally I think that you will be adding a mouse highway into the living space.

I will be spending the winter in Oklahoma trying to keep the underbelly warm. Not possible for mice to get into basement it is sealed up to the frame everywhere, I did that myself. I don`t want to drill though into the top of a holding tank, there is four tanks down there.

The furnace access is through the basement wall in most of these trailers. All you should need is a duct collar, a register of your liking, (I would get one you can open and close to get the desired flow), and some 4" heater duct. I would put it high in the section of the wall that is not normally removed for service. High so your stuff does not block it.

Sorry, I missed the belly part. Our 343rsok has a 1.5" duct that is stuffed into one of the tank vent openings from the factory.
