Furnace vent (bathroom)

I have a a 2010 30.5 rlds. I have an issue where the bathroom vent (located right behind toilet) blows an astronomical amount of air compared to any other furnace vent. Its so bad we cannot leave the bathroom door closed with furnace running and of course balancing heat is a nightmare as bedroom roasting all the time.
I looked at all the venting and am not seeing any reason
I tried covering the bathroom vent, and limiting flow, but it did not seem like i got the corresponding airflow i was expecting to other vents and was afraid i was going to starve for air and over heat.
Any thoughts or help?

I would replace vent with one that can be partially closed to see if the air flow can be reduced and also it depends on where the furnace is located from each vent

Welcome to the forum.

It seems many different floorplans have similar issues with too much heat to the bathroom. Like 1kelorinc suggested, have you tried partially blocking the bathroom vent?

Looking at your floorplan, maybe an option would be to shut the bathroom door into the front bedroom and leaving the hallway door for the bathroom partially open? Maybe a fan could help move that warm air into the lower part of your trailer.

Maybe single use or double or triple use to reduce flow?
