Adding a heat outlet in the bathroom.

This may be covered somewhere else but I got tired of looking. Has anyone added a heat out let in their bathroom? Our 21QB has no heat outlet in the BR but has the foil heat duct passing through to the bedroom. It looks like I could just insert a tee in the ducting and attaching a dampened outlet. Any thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks,
RichR

A completely different layout, but I did the exact same thing on our old hybrid except in reverse. Our trailer, a Starcraft 19CK had two furnace outlets, one in the front of the trailer and one in the bathroom. In cold weather, those two areas were warm but the rear half of the trailer was cold. The duct ran under the bathtub, so I used the access panel for the bathtub drain to get to the duct, where I put a tee and some flexible ducting to add another outlet toward the rear of the trailer. It worked well enough. IIRC, 4" ducting was the right size.

I would like to do the same thing in our current 24FBS, but the layout of the trailer doesn't allow it, unless I go through the floor, which I'm not about to do.

There is nothing stopping you from adding a T and finishing with a vent. I would suggest you use an adjustable vent cover in case your heater is not sized for the extra square feet you will have to heat. When not using the bathroom you could just close the vent.

As much as we love our Melbourne K MH, a design flaw we've found is that we don't have a heat vent in our bathroom, only an AC vent. We camp in very cool climates a lot, and it really is aggravating propping the door open; but sometimes our bathroom feels like a deep freeze in the middle of the night if we don't.

Our htt came with a heat duct in the bathroom. They teed off with a 2" duct. From the main line that runs under our sink. Its probalby 2 feet long. The bathroom is really hot.

It would be a fairly simple mod to tee off the heat duct that runs through your bathroom. That's something Jayco should have done, anyway. Unfortunately, that's not possible with our 23RB.

In our 33rlds we had a vent and when the heater came on the bathroom got really hot. We had to open the roof vent so that we could stand it. I took one of those heat guys and measured the heat coming out of the vent and it was 124 degrees. The bedroom heat was 120 degrees. Our trailer had a real good heater.
