Heater vents location

I have a 23ikss and one thing I don't like about it is the location of the heater vents. The one beside the fridge is in a good spot, but the other one is in a useless location. It's in the the bathroom underneath the shower. This makes the bathroom get very warm while the rest of the trailer is still cold, even if we leave the bathroom door open. I am considering relocating this vent to the bathroom wall beside the dinette area. I'm thinking this way it should work better to keep the trailer warm on cold nights. This way I can just run the air vent tube through the cabinet under the sink. Has anyone attempted this before? Or is there some way to make the heat go through the vents in the ceiling where the a/c air goes through?

My vent is under bathroom sink. Gets so hot it burns your feet! I know leaving the bathroom door isn't much help. Just bought a ceramic heater and put it in on the island. It oscillates. Used it all last week, never put the heat on. It was in the high 40s at night. Everyone toasty😊. 2015 23 IKSS

Luuk, I have been thinking of moding the heating duct in the bathroom in our 23IKSS also. It does get very warm in the bathroom when the furnace is running. What I was thinking of doing was to tee into the tubing to the bathroom and extend another run through the bathroom cabinet and out thru the wall by the dinette slideout. Have not done so yet though.

@RCCS I was actually thinking of doing the same thing, but my wife told me I'm crazy as she doesn't like the idea of modifying a brand new trailer. Not really sure how hard it would be.
