Heat to the bathroom tonight :)

Recommended Posts

I just wanted a warm bathroom tonight, the temps are dropping into the 30°s. I've had the heater outlet under the bed closed off and taped closed for a few months, so I stuck a pillow in front of the outlet in the kitchen, waited a minute, then went in and still had cold air coming out of the vent...

 

But... There was plenty of air coming out, I waited another minute and... no change...

 

So I turned on the vent fan, and in just a few seconds, the heat vent was really blowing hot air out and really heated the bathroom up fast :)

 

My theory is that the vent pulled the hot air thru the heating duct and when I shut the vent fan off, it seemed to cool back down some. So I turned it on again and happiness flowed over the world once again :)

 

Tip or trick? It's too soon to tell, but try it and post your results.

P.s. I do have the heat limiters pictured below on the left, removed from the kitchen and bathroom vents.

Does your bathroom door close tight enough to restrict the heat air recirculation from the bath to the main cabin?  Try the heat with the bath door open.

Yup, it closes tight enough, but it was the middle of the night and we have the heat set to come on at 55°, so the cabin stays cold for good sleeping. I plugged the vent and turned up the heater to 62° just to heat the bathroom, which probably got up to around 70° in there only and it worked great and was very comfortable. Then I came out and put it back down to 55°, pulled the pillow from our main and only duct we use in the kitchen and went back to bed :)


Happy Camping,
