Furnace too Hot in Jay Feather 29L BH

Looking for opinions.. is the following normal?

Our TT is the 2012 Jay Feather 29L BH. We have only ran the furnace a few times, but with the design of where the furnace is at, it makes it unbearable to use.
The furnace sets directly below the bottom bunk. The furnace is ducted so that there is a very short (probably 1ft) duct that empties below the the bottom bunk for the bunk house. Then there is duct work that runs the length of the TT to feed the rest of the TT. The problem is that the short duct pumps soo much heat into the BH, that it is at least a 10 degrees hotter. In order for the front of the TT to be warm, the BH is HOT. I asked the service guys at the dealership about replacing the duct cover with a cover that I can close/partially close to help control the air flow, but they said that it wasn't good on the furnace to block that vent because it was soo close to the furnace.

Has anyone else had this isssue? How did you overcome it. Since most of the places we camp have electric, we use space heaters with the furnace set really low incase the space heaters couldn't keep up..

Same problem in our bathroom, talked to the service manager and he checked with Jayco got the same answer you did. All I know is that it do get hot in the bathroom, when the heats on.

Is it one of the round vents that you can turn to point in certain directions, or a rectangular vent?
