We replaced our floor heat vents with adjustable (full on to full off) with these from Home Depot about $8.00 each. Now we have control over where the heat goes.

Happy trails,

Heating

I have a two air vents. In our motorhome. On by the shower the other in the bedroom. The heat does not go to the. Front. I think I would like to instill one going to the front????

It's kind of funny. The register in the bathroom is the only adjustable one I have; I would think they all should be adjustable, but then that would cost more...

The reason that they are not all adjustable is because there is a minimum amount of CFM that is needed by the furnace fan. This way you can not go below the minimum required amount without causing issues to the heating system

That makes sense. If you don't get enough air going over the heating coils, then you'll burn the insides up. Still it would be nice to close them off to keep debris out for the other 96% of the time when the furnace is not used. We've owned our trailer for less than two months, and I can see the funk down in the ducts...

I was dissapinted with the poor ducting Jayco did on our trailer. They had one run from the furnace heating the kitchen, living room and hallway. The other two heated the bedroom and bathroom. Had to keep the bathroom door open to heat the trailer. When I went to fix it I noticed several openings in the foil ducts. I ran the foil ducts inside expandable metal plenums and rerouted the runs. It has made a huge improvement. It required removing the bottom cover but it was worth it.
