29MV - Too much engine heat in cab
We are on day 2 of our repositioning trip from south to north. This is the first trip that we have taken since the purchase of our 2018 29MV in November that we have traveled in weather that we can roll down the windows in the cab. But DW has noticed extreme heat in the passenger seat, not emanating from the dog box, but in the area slightly behind and to the right of her seat. It's in the area where the passenger seat belt is mounted. I felt the area and there was no comparison between the drivers and passenger sides. The mechanism for the seat belt rewinder was hot. Our past trips were in the cold, so the heat was on and this issue wasn't noticed.
I see that the exhaust pipe exits by the passenger side wheels, but I don't know if that would be close enough to cause the excess heat. I checked both front wheels and tires, and they both seemed to be about the same temperature.
Have any of you experienced this phenomenon? Any ideas of why or what to do to remedy this. DW has moved to the back just to get away from the heat.
