Be careful closing a register substantially or completely, especially one that "really blows". If you reduce air flow in the system you can overheat your furnace. I'm sure furnaces have over temp sensors that would shut them off, but I really don't want to depend on that sensor.

I think talking to Jayco would be a good idea.

Please tell us what Jayco has to say about closing it....

Jayco answered promptly as follows: Thank you for the e-mail inquiry. Do not close off furnace vents or install a register that can be closed, this will cause the furnace to limit out and could cause damage to the furnace. Please set up an appointment with your dealer and I will have him change the ducting
coming out of the furnace so the duct with the longest run is in the top
hole of the furnace, the top hole in the furnace puts out more air flow.
Cordially,,

I dont like the blast of heat in the bathroom either. I have a bathmat in there on the floor and when necessary I just cover the vent with it. I like simple solutions

Just a follow-up. The dealer made the switchout Jayco suggested and said it wouldn't make any difference. Well, I'd say it reduced the air flow 30%. I would NOT say it fixed the problem.

Our old 97 Terry had the same deal, when we started shopping I made sure the Jayco we liked did not have this setup.

Our Antigua 195CK also had the same register. Round and forceful....also had to leave the door open to get the heat where we needed it. Bunks were usually cold, and bathroom super warm...I had lots of plans, and still have em, just dont have that camper anymore. Good luck hope you get to a solution..
