Default heat

Just wondering if anyone else has had trouble getting heat to the bathroom
The other night when the temp out side hit the 30 degree mark the temp in the bath was 40 degrees and the furnce was working .the rest of the coach was toasty warm .
No, the vent was not open,there was just NO air coming from the heat duct under the sink.

We have just the opposite - our bathroom gets very warm when the heater runs. Sounds like you had a heat "duct" come loose from the heater ouput main(?) duct.

Is your heater under your fridge, & the fridge next to the bathroom?

Hi Doug and Welcome to the fourm

We have a little heat in bathroom but on cold nights we leave the door open so heat will be even. Had same problem with my Pace Arrow it seams the heat for the basement runs off that heat line on mine.
good luck

Earl

Doug,

What I would do is remove the return air grid that covers the opening for your furnace and take a look at the ducts that connect to your furnace to see if one of them has come loose from the furnace.

I had this happen to our 2003 GS coach we used to have. It had a sheetmetal type connector that locked to the furnace by turning 1/4 turn. Evidently it had vibrated and came loose allow the duct to move away.

I reconnected it and all was warm once again. But it was not easy to reconnect since of the very tight limited access and my big ring size 15 hands.

This might be your problem, especially if it worked okay before and now it doesn't. Or maybe it was never connected when it was built?

Our bathroom was nice and toasty. Maybe because it is so small. But the living room was like a barn. Had to turn the heat up to 80 to get comfortable.
The furnace in the bedroom area works 10 times better than the one in the front. Wonder if something is wrong?

Default bathroom heat

Now that I have had the time to check the ducting over I was WRONG, the T under the kitchen sink goes no where .
I put the end of a vacum cleaner hose blowing in it and expected air to to come out in the bath room but it did NOT! It did not want to go anywhere but back at me.
I then took the vac out to a compartment and tried there ,it came out in the bathroom and the furnce .
I then uncovered the furnce and discocered the there is a baffle in front of the outlet to the batroom and where else .
Now the question???? how do I get by this baffle ,it looks to limit the air flow to about a 1/4 of the others.
