Heater question

Maiden voyage done, learned not to lay with grand daughter on table bed, ( wood screws broke, leaving us on floor)

Black water and grey water were labeled wrong, from factory figured that out.

but the heater,, has one blower in the back then two floor ducts, one in LR and one in front BR,, anyone know if there is a way to divert the flow? the rear vent is round and spins and the blades on it are angled so I aimed it up, then put a fan on the floor and shot it at the roof of the LR to circulate air throughout.

will have to lie on floor to see if I can see anything.

Kodiak 300bHSL

thanks, I know someone here has same model..

Which vent are u wanting to divert? I may not be reading it correctly but I used my heat the first time this past weekend and the entire camper stayed very warm when it got cold at night.

I have a round 4 inch one in the back bedroom, right where the heater is, then in the LR/Kitchen area there is a rectangle and a rectangle on in the front bedroom. The round one blows nice and hard and hot, after Youtube videos, I see there is a diverter for around 10 bucks, but I think I will take the main panel off and see what I see,, as I do not want to back up the blower fan too much by trying to divert the air flow ( like you do with AC)

I have a camera also I might push down from the front bedroom and see how they have it set up, I am sure after breaking the table/bed, that even though I paid 35K,, it sure doesnt show in the workmanship.

Just was wondering if other with Kodiaks had same issue,, I know all three do not blow the same flow ( anemometer )

Model number for trailer was in my first post.

We just had our new 2015 out this past weekend for the first time and tunred on the heater as well... We thought that the back bedroom was warmer than the other rooms but we figured it was because the door was closed. Will check it out next week when we are camping.

I ended up buying a diverter for 10 bucks, has a twist knob in middle and flaps that close, works much better now, I also will pull the panel from the heater and look at replacing the junk stock heater tubing,, it is super fragile..

Done with our first campout in 300BHSL as well. Did discover that the heater flows harder out the rear ducting that it does on either of the other floor ducts.

I will be inspecting the heating tubing this weekend as well.
