Heating problem - BRRRR!!

We have a 2017 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite WS8289 and have a problem regulating the heat while boondocking. The bedroom/bathroom (Zone 2, I believe) gets too hot via floor vents pushing out tons of hot air while the living room and kitchen (Zone 1, right?) have barely any hot air coming up through the floor. Anyone have any idea what the problem could be?

Crushed/broken/plugged heating ducts are a common problem. You need to inspect the ducts starting at the furnace hot air plenum and working your way to the registers. If you have one of those borescopes that attached to your cell phone, it makes inspection easier.

If you can access the heater tube runs under the floor, furniture or cabinets, you may have a kink in the tube. It's flexible tubing and a sharp bend can kink it and close it off partially or fully. Or it may have come loose at the fitting on the side of the furnace or at the vent opening into the room is another possibility. It should be clamped on at the furnace, but I'm not 100% sure they clamp them on the vent openings or how they run in your 5'er.
