Maybe there is something left from the manufacturer clogging the duct. I had quite a bit of Styrofoam pieces blow out of my AC ductwork

There was no register in our bathroom in our 8528RKWS either. I just used thin alum and blocked off between the alum floor joists and re-routed the basement duct to furnish air to the area between the rafters, cut the hole for a register and get heat to a larger area of the floor plus air from the register.

Don't know if you could do something similar to a tt.

I think the easiest fix is a small 500 watt oil filled convection heater tucked in behind the toilet; plenty of room there and available GFCI power.

We have heat in our 27RLWS right below the shower pan. I have to tell you that it will cook your goose while perched on the commode. Really have to dump and go.

There is a vent under the shower, but the little air that comes out of it is pretty much cold

You most likely need to have the ducks regulated, too much air from one and not enough from another. Your dealer should do this, however if he does not....get a small electric oil filled space heater. I use my 21FBRS for work and have been in 15 degree winters. I use an electric oil filled radiator to heat my TT. Most parks do not charge for electricity. Best thing is that its silent, no noise from a fan.
Good luck...

True, but I usually rotate the louvres on mine so the air does not fry my feet.

If air is coming out and it is not warm but the air out of the other registers is warm then yours may not be a simple problem. You will need to take the register out.

I suspect what may have happened is that the duct is not connected to the register but is blowing the hot air in the space behind the register so that what actually comes out (a) is reduced in volume, and (b) had dropped in temperature.
