Mines in the same spot Rock, but it is at least 2 inches in front of the couch.
Just curious, did you have all the other vents open? Did you verify that there was air coming out of the others and not just a huge volume of air blowing out the back one because others were blocked or not hooked up

Yours is two inches in front of the couch and mine is 1/3 under the couch. They screwed up and installed it two far back. The only way to fix it is to have a custom vent made that has a top angled forward. All vents are open and work fine but the very hot air is heating up the metal vent and the couch is touching and on top of 1/3 of it. I will call Jayco after this trip and figure out how they will fix this. The leather type material will fall apart in no time with it getting so hot. The couch is as far back as it can go. Already touching the back wall.

Our gas furnace vent runs perpendicular to the couch and is about 10" out in front of the couch. We have the throw rug that came with the coach in the living room and the vent is actually under the rug. Our gas furnace has only run a couple of times so far and to be honest I forgot the vent was there. With the mild "winter" temps we've had so far the heat pump has handled it so far.
One option, and probably the easiest for you would be replace that vent with one that can be closed off, close it and be done. That's what I would do if it were me, just my thoughts.

You would think they have a layout plan for the vent. Seems nuts that mine is part under the couch and yours is ten inches in front of it

I agree you would think so. But based on numerous stories I've read on here apparently ole Bob factory worker does not always do things the same from unit to unit. Obviously they cut the holes in the floor and duct work at the same time. Who knows???

Hello Everyone,
We have finished our inaugural shakedown and finally back in sunny AZ. Sorry we have been offline, but just put ours in storage yesterday and now just catching up on the recent threads..

Rock,
our vent is about 2" in front of the couch and runs parallel with couch. The other two run the other direction and parallel to the island, but we did notice the front of the couch does get hot... The better half was worried about the material getting too hot, plus we must remember to keep the ottoman from blocking the vent.

The gas heat does work VERY Well, but we tried to use the electric heat pump as much as possible. On several occasions, the electric heat would not keep up and the gas heat took over...

Also, I did find the issue about the long screws in the vacuum as well!!!! fixed it myself...

We have a 2015 FBTS and I see people are talking about electric and gas heat. We have not yet used the heater, (live in San Diego) but am confused on this. The thermostat doesn't give an option for electric or gas. I assumed that it was all gas heat like in previous trailers we have owned. Can someone please explain this? Sorry for asking a stupid question.

If your coach does not have the Heat Pump option on the main A/C unit then you will only have a heat selection. I guessing your thermostat probably just has cool & heat.
Hope this helps clear it up for you.

I need to correct myself. I just realized I said perpendicular, when in fact I meant parallel. Thought one thing and typed another
The measurement is correct though.

Ya mine is part way under the couch so that gas to be fixed. We r spending our first night at Ho Hum in Carrabelle Fl. So far everything has worked as should. Got another question for u guys. This morning when leaving went to roll the power cord up and unless I feed the cord in it would not roll up. Like the rewind motor is very weak. Had Generator running and batteries fully charged. Do I have a very weak cord motor or is this normal. First time rolling up cord and had to feed it in while holding the switch. I will let u know how the trip goes. Everyone have a great Turkey Day
