Hi I've got a 2015 rockwood 8289 ultra lite and had the same problem, I tried electric heaters but kept tripping the site so I spent £2500 and installed a wood burner

While I don't doubt the possibility of a wood stove in a trailer, I do have to call 'photoshop' on that particular image. No way you should be getting that hot of a burn off the two logs visible.

The log burner is a 4kw and if you get it warm enough, 2logs will keep the trailer warm for hours. What is photo shop?

I spent a lot of time as a kid feeding my parent's wood furnace, and I've had my own wood stove for 11 years now. A large bed of coals, a strong draft from a large temperature differential (10 F outside, 75 inside) and air intake open all the way, throw in a few dry logs and yes they will almost literally explode. I have no doubt that picture is real.

one log in a good wood stove will burn like that , if there is a good bed of coals all ready . i feed mine in the house with just one or two logs at a time . it's air flow !

I'm gonna guess a duct is crushed or disconnected.. Is the air flow low at all the outlets? If so start at the furnace...

It might be worth finding a scope and dropping it down the ducts to see if you can see anything obvious..

I use a small fan I got from camping world to move the air around. It is very quiet it's about 10" square. I put it in the far end of my unit to move the air better. Hope you find a way

I haven't read all the comments, but I had the same problem on one of our 5th wheels. You're right about the dealers. They will check it out, they are NOT the factory, they can't help you. One ours one side of the trailer got more airflow from the floor vents than the other. We ripped it apart, adjusted ducts, etc. I have a cfm meter, and contacted the factory with the numbers. Our master and bathroom had close to 0 cfms. They had an excuse for everything. One thing they suggested was running the ac fan to circulate. It was a big fiasco. I ended up putting in a restriction in one of the back lines to force more pressure towards the front. It still was not enough. Long story short...get a space heater and live with it. Sorry.
