If the "mistake" is buying the wrong trailer because it was misrepresented to you - good luck with that.

I would check the air coming out of the ducts. I bought an 2008 8286 - there was not much air coming out of the vents. The metal can (plenum) below the floor where the duct work fastens, was not properly secured at the factory and had dropped down about 2" - all my hot air was blowing under the trailer. Not much air out the vents. Once fixed it made a big difference.

We haven't had any issues with heating at those temps in our 2013 8280ws. I use the ceiling fan and keep the shades closed as much as possible. I have used space heaters at night to avoid the furnace noise.
