Hot air furnace ace 30.1

2015 ace 30.1 hot air furnace is located under floor on driver side rear of motorhome. Problem I have is rear bedroom gets hot when in use and front of motorhome stays on the cooler side, you can feel the difference from front to back. I was thinking is there a way or did anyone figure out a way to regulate the heat from front to back and try and make temp more uniform threw out motorhome. Thermastate is located on wall right outside bathroom. Any ideas?

Force more air to vents in front by closing or blocking those in the rear.

Earlier this spring I noticed low air flow to the furnace registers in by Bedroom, which seems opposite of your condition.

During the summer, being curious, I removed an access panel from the side of the cabinet where my fireplace and AV gear is located. I was specifically looking for the furnace so I could se what kind of clearance I had for a modification I have in mind. One thing I noticed is the duct that comes off the furnace plenum and runs to the rear of the coach has about a 1 x 1 tear close to the point where it is clamped to the plenum. This past weekend I used some duct tape to temporarily patch the hose and after my next trip I'll take the coach to the dealer and have then fix the hose under warranty.

Your duct tape repair is a pretty permanent repair, that's what it is for. Sounds like you handled it.
