Bedroom ceiling vents have less warm air but I figure it wouldn't have same as more centrally located vents

I'll be following the PDI in the JOF and plan to be very thorough. However, in that PDI there was no mention of removing panels as a normal step of the PDI.

So, I'll pay close attention to the air flow at all of the registers when checking the furnace. And I'll be sure my screwdriver is not far away.

Thanks.

This is no time to be trusted friends with the dealer. The only thing he wants today is your money then he'll fix those " little things" when you have an appointment. Either before PDI or after OR BOTH, do your inspection ,now this is on your time not theirs so they shouldn't object. You'll need your screwdriver, flash light, and your camera phone to peek around those corners inside the cabinets, inside access panel at shower base and every access panel that has screws. You'll be surprised at all the hidden spaces you can't see from the standing up position.
Visit your dealer and check out a few trailers almost like yours and do a practice inspection. You are going to learn so much ahead of time for your real one.
Make sure your sinks are caulked properly all the way around and you make sure all water connections are tight.

In addition to your normal tools, you'll also want a square bit driver to remove some panels.

I own a Jayco Blackhawk 21DSRB. My air duct to the bathroom was broken and pinched from mfg. As well as all the supply water lines to faucets, indoor and outdoor showers leaked water all over coach. The shower drain and sink drain leaked. The slide is digging into the ceiling. All in the first outing. Fast forward to 6 month. Old. Slide delamination. Had to be completely rebuilt. Water leak under trailer causing insulation under trailer to fall. Shower door won't close and is hanging up at the bottom. Shower glass enclosure coming away from wall pulling wallpaper along with it. Water leak in wall behind outdoor shower came back. Grey water drain valve leaking. Cabinet door under dinette came off due to screws not even into wood. Fender is falling off due to not being screwed in properly. Now a year old. The paint is almost worn off just the front. You can see fiberglass fibers coming thru. The rest of the trailer looks great. The water heater is leaking. The passenger rear tire is almost worn off and the rest look new. Took out to an alignment shop and they said it's obvious the rear axle it's out of alignment. The rebuilt slide is hanging up when being pulled in. The repaired shower door is not closing again. The glass shower wall is pulling away from the wall again. The batteries are shot and we're always kept on a charger (fully aware they don't supply quality batteries). Most of these items were addressed and fixed by the dealership either to some satisfaction or some repairs as I mentioned need to be taken back for repair. This trailer had spent way too much time in for punch list of repairs. My wife and I bought this trailer as a wedding gift to our selfs in 2013. A lot of money to us and has been such a disappointment for us. We tried to take our honeymoon along the coast in it and had to come home early. I hope Jayco realizes that this is a big purchase for some people. I truely feel victimized by this transaction.

It's obvious my comments got lost in the obis. When I saw the pics, I thought it was my 2014 Jayco 27.5 BHS. I'm going to borrow my friends boroscope to check the dealer repair. They missed sealing the rear window, the whole rear wall was replaced (dealer did a nice job). The stairs were reattached so we didn't feel like we were going to fall forward. By the way the furnace supply gas supply hose was kinked closed from the factory (we picked it up 10/2013 and froze the 1st night).
