Bathroom Heat Duct Flow


Recommended Posts

The inadequate flow to the bathroom vent in the LE2 has been discussed many times, along with some possible solutions.   Just to be sure I did not have a kink, I went poking around under the front dinette seat taking pics in the bilge.  I discovered loops of flex duct hose, possibly it may be pinched.   Surely this restricts the flow somewhat, but how to straighten it out?   I could remove the panel under the bath sink, and try to gently tug on it to get the kinks out.    I’m concerned I will tear the hose, and it does not look easy to get to for repair under that floor.  I’ve got a Service Ticket in to ask, but I thought I’d check here to see if anyone has noticed a similar problem.

I've never seen THAT before.  Almost looks like some Hamster's run.

Please let us know what Service has to say.

I think you should open up the bath vanity and check to see if the duct is even connected. Seems to me there's a possibility that the excess was never routed through the vanity and just left laying loose under the shower pan. You can also take a flashlight and look through the bath vent to see if the duct is connected to it, but the issue will ultimately have to be addressed from inside the vanity. There isn't any access to that duct section from under the curbside bunk.

Good suggestion, but I’ve been inside the vanity before, the duct is connected.  I did not know about these loops or I would have addressed it then.   I’ll wait until Service gets back to me before I dive in there again.  I’m hoping I can just pull it gently and uncoil it, then cut off the excess.   If it tears underneath the floor, I want it to be Oliver’s  problem.   When I do open up the vanity again, I’m going to implement this mod.  And I will let all know what Service advises.    I made this post so that others might want to check their duct work.  It’s not in a place you’d see unless you go looking for it.  I’m learning to explore all unseen areas when possible.

Update:  Mike Sharpe at Service got back to my service ticket promptly.  He’s going to go out on production line tomorrow morning to see if he can come up with best way to get it straightened out.  I’ve found a few flaws with my Oliver, nothing major.   The response and solutions from their Service Dept. are outstanding, It’s one of the best companies I’ve ever done business with.
