Heat Air flow

First post. Hello from AZ.

Took my bullet out this weekend. First outting.

There is only 3 vents. One in bedroom on the wall and two in the living area. 4th if you include the underbelly.

The bedroom has great flow. The air goes right to it. About same distance is the first floor vent. About half the air flow from her. And last the one by the bathroom gets about half if that. So 60%, 25%,15%.

I've read up a bit and the manual suggests certain setups for best performance. It seems I'm set up that way. I will check for sags or rips but both vents are lacking air. And one is real close. Doubt it has trouble..

Another option...has anyone converted there underbelly to go to the cabin? If I visit sub30 areas I could convert back.

But in mean time any other suggestions?

Aside from the weird thermostat, that was my only disappointment was the heat....

The one in the bedroom... is it blowing a lot of air? We found that ours (Bullet also) was poorly connected and as a result was blowing into the area inside the furnace cabinet. Fixed that and now the issue is that we're getting so much heat that the aftermarket adjustable register we put in the main area has the plastic vanes melting. Such first world problems!

This is a common concern. My take is this is 3rd RV with ducted heat for me, 4 others without. The ducted ones all have less power/air flow the further away from the furnace the vent. Yes, there could be something limiting the flow in yours, but maybe not.
The thing is the RV is not nearly the sq ft as a home and I find they do OK overall inside the RV. I camp down into the teens at times. The walls/floor are always cold. Windows the coldest. Overall the air temps do okay. From the hottest to the coldest vent is what distance 10-12 feet. The ducted heat RVs are way better than the older ones without.

Had a problem with no heat in our bathroom. Opened up the under floor area by removing the rear panel in the basement and discovered the flex hose had detached from the vent collar. Reattached it and tightened up the hose clamp. Easy day.
