Could also be the spot on the furnace the ducts are hooked to. Mine has 4 hoses , 2 from back of furnace, and 1 from each side....side ones don't have near the flow at registers. Had to replace 2 torn hoses that were not routed around holding tanks correctly.

I am not sure if you actually did this or not, but I had a similar issue and fixed it through installing vents that close. I wasn't getting enough heat in the bunkroom for the twins; I felt it was way too cold back there. Big box orange store stocked them and I replaced all of them in the rig.

We also have a 2015 8528IKWS 5th and quickly discovered how much heat was coming out of the bathroom vent and not the rest of the trailer. I bought a wooden vent that you can close but I'm concerned about that comment that was made about over heating the furnace unit? Hopefully the wood will not get to hot. Also replaced the thermostat with a programmable one so it will turn things on and have the trailer warmed up or cooled down when we what. We ended up buying a small programmable heater (square wooden box model on wheels) that has helped. There is diffidently a problem with the heat not being very well balanced in the trailer. If anyone has any more ideas keep them coming. Stay warm.

Too much / too little heat

The furnace in my Flagstaff 26FKWS is located in the bedroom area. Both the bed room and bath room were too hot and the main living area cool so I (wait it's coming) covered half of the floor grills in the bedroom and bathroom with duct tape in a matching colour and there is still plenty of air flow and heat.

I would be concerned about the wooden register catching on fire. As I stated in my original post "the plastic register melted when I closed it". We now have a metal register that closes and it gets so hot the it burns your foot if you step on it. Suburban furnace Tech was quite concerned about the furnace hitting the high temperature limit switch if we closed the registers. He said it would really cause the furnace to be inefficient. We spend the winters in our trailer and use the furnace often. Hopefully FR/Flagstaff/Rockwood will have solution to our problem.

Even afteer closing the registers we still do not get enough heat in the living room.

I suspect that there are people with the Rockwood 8289WS having this problem too. Would like to hear from them.

I have a 8289WS with the same problem. I'm going to try and change around some duct work like feeding the living area from the takeoff of the Bathroom and stair landing and maybe a damper or two, hopefully switching those might help. I have access to an air velocity meter, going to try and balance out everything. Bathroom square footage requires much less air flow "not more" than the living area.

It could be the flexible duct has come disconnected from the furnace port or under the floor somewhere
