No heat in bedroom.

I picked up my 2018 gray wolf 22rr yesterday came home and was sitting in it it admiring my new camper. Had the heat on and went into the bedroom and it was cold and the bathroom was to. Are there no heat vents in these two rooms. What are you doing to stay warm? I can use some sort of heater just curious what people are doing.

I just leave the bedroom door open and point the heat vent towards it. I dont use any space heaters as i am worried about the blankets falling off the bed while sleeping. You could try the using a heater in the bathroom or small circulation fan.

Do you have any ducted heat? a smaller open floor plan toyhauler like that may only have one central furnace. leave the doors open or run a small electric heater (great idea when not paying electric) Heat registers would be easy to spot in the floor or cabinets. Ac ducts should be in the ceiling.

Look like the heat comes out under the sink on each side. One side points towards the bedroom. It has ducked ac in the ceiling. I have a small heater i used in my old campers bathroom. I think that will do the trick. Just never had no heat in the bedroom.

lots of threads about unequal air/heat flow and crushed blocked duct work. I have a large 5th wheel and the bath room is about 10 degrees warmer then the rest of trailer. I joke that it must of been planned that way to prevent freezing in cold weather.

Maybe just use a small fan to move air around into or out of the bedroom.

Just wondering if you you have a dual zone heating system?
Mine stayed on longer than it should, I read the instruction on the system, turns out I have two zones, one for the main living area, one for the bedroom. After I got both zones working, end of problems!

Hi!

If you always have shore power I prefer electric mattress heaters. That way I can set my side and DW can adjust the temperature to suit her.

It's more expensive than a portable heater but the comfort cannot be beat.

Dometic add on heat kit

Looking at pics of your unit here:

https://www.theoutpostrv.com/New-Inv...#gallerySlider

your furnace is on the curb side under your stove, that grate under the stove is the cold air return. So it appears you only have two heating ducts, one on the rear of the kitchen cabinet by the curb side fold-down sofa, and one in the front of the kitchen cabinet by the entry door.

If you want more heat in the bathroom/bedroom, you'll have to leave the door(s) open or use an electric heater if you have shore power.

Seems they could have put the converter/breakers under a shorter pantry and put the furnace under the fridge and run the front duct into the bathroom. It would have given you a little more "kitchen" storage, too.

This is something you learn to look for. My Roo 19 had one duct into the bathroom, which was good, but the other duct was right next to the cold air return, so a lot of the hot air simply got sucked into the cold air return. And as you can see, they could have easily have put the duct on the outside of the bench, into the aisle, rather than under the table.

Of course, there was NO air to the rear bunk.
