3914 minimal heat from galley vents?

Anyone have any experience with this? We are getting very little heat from the galley floor registers in our 2016 voltage 3914. Bathroom and bedroom are fine - almost too much heat in bathroom. I can see a 4 inch hose opening in the bathroom register but can t see any in the galley registers. Is that normal? This is our 2nd voltage. We had a '13 3600 and the furnace vents put out plenty of heat everywhere. Trying to get all the bugs worked out.

I just bought the same trailer. I am also having that exact concern. Have you had any luck figuring it out?

Ross, I have a 3895, but one of my floor vents wasn't putting out much, so I ran a camera down and found that it had a piece of wood, that was blocking about a foot away from the vent, I had to hit it with another piece of wood, then remove it with a long nose piers, so it must have been left from when they put it together, I don't know if thats your trouble

My floor vents aren't putting out much either. I'll have to pull the vents off & take a look.

Still haven't figured it out, but wI'll post when I do. The dealer said that sometimes they put way too many feet of hose and it gets kinked but they haven't had time to look at it yet.

That makes sense, given that just about every piece of wire or Pex is just pulled off the reel and the surplus gets stuffed whereever they can stuff it.

I'd like to tel them where to stuff it alright!

We just came back from 5 days around 45 and nights as low as 27 up in the Dove Springs area. The floor vents in the bedroom, front bath, near the front door, and near the fridge all worked, but the one in the garage area did not. We had to shut the back off as it was freezing back there, so we could not use the back bath until during the day when things warmed up a bit. I can see ducting going down and to the left from the garage heater duct, but there was only cold. It's only about 3 or 4 feet from there to the duct near the fridge that does work. Anyone had this issue or know how to get to it? Not sure if this would be a related or different issue to the OP's, but any help is appreciated!

Were you there when the dealer called Dutchmen?

The first thing you will have to do is drag your camper back to the dealer and invite him to spend the night in it, in just his shirt sleeves, no jacket, no blankets, no shore power. Once he's freezes id butt off he'll call Dutchmen again.

They probably stuffed the duct work under something and it got sqaushed.

We have a 2016 Voltage 3914 and I haven't really given that much thought but we too don't get much heat out of the 2 floor vents in the main cabin. The bathroom is WAY too hot and the bedroom definitely gets nice and warm. I've been thinking of closing off some of the vent in the bathroom to reduce that airflow and hopefully send more to the cabin registers.
