Air flow furnace and window drafts

Eagle 318RLS. Furnace blows really heavy at far end by rear. Barely blows in front by bedroom. Thought I could just cover the vent at rear and that would cause it to blow more in bedroom. It did, but VERY minimal.

In short, rear always hot and toasty. Bedroom not so much. Any ideas to force the air flow to the front?

And these windows.....absurd. Let down at Jayco. How hard could it have been to use some caulk and seal off the openings a little tighter. I can actually feel the cold air blowing in at bottom of window. Problem is I can't tell if its the very bottom of the frame or the bottom of the window.

Frame I can use some silicone. Window not sure what to so...

There have been posts about damaged and/or restricted heat ducts. The ducts would have to be inspected between the bedroom and the furnace to rule that out.

The widows are supposed to be sealed.

If your trailer is under warranty, you should probably have a talk with a dealer about fixing these issues.

I had the same problem in my 5th wheel. I went to Lowes and bought new floor vents that I could shut off. At night I would shut the ones I did not need and got more heat in the bedroom.

You will always feel some cold air coming off the window frames they are metal. Thermal pane windows will help reduce it, but not totally eliminate it.

Some window frames have condensation drains in them. That may be where your draft is coming from. Go outside and look at your window frames. The drains are obvious.
