We have a RL, with three vents that are not connected to anything, just opening to the pan area and the garage. One is under the enterance coat closet, one on the bottom step going to the bedroom, and in the bedroom under the cabinet. Hot air comes out of them in the summer and cold air in the winter. Anyone know why they are there and if I could cover them up?

I believe they may be the cold air return for the furnace. There's no ducts connected, but they allow air to where the furnace is located. I've had other rv's with similar openings. As long as you aren't using the furnace I would think you could close them off, but would want them open when the furnace kicks in.

Ding, ding, ding.... rcflame, you are absolutely correct! I spoke with Randy, from the Crossroads Service Center this morning about the vents. He called the Redwoods Production Manger who confirmed what you said. That being said, I'm still going to block them off as instead of pulling return air out, they are blowing outside air in. The pan is leaky enough to draw sufficient air into the furnace. Thanks for your reply. VicEdited by: Adamsvr
