No heat from living room heat ducts?

It might just be this. Photo taken under the floor vent of the mid bathroom on a 2016 39MB with a borescope I bought on Amazon.
1) Check out the wood shavings still lying on floor of the duct from drilling through bathroom floor to install vent.
2) I wondered why the basement was much warmer than our living room, check out the duct tape flashing job where the bathroom heat vent attaches to the duct.
3) oh and the reason why there is no heat to living room, just beyond the round vent pipe is the top of the duct work that has fallen down and almost completely blocking air flow to living room. Was installed with tape. Go figure! Supposed to be high end unit built for full timing ie: should last. My brother’s 2013 Redwood does not have The factory issues that I am uncovering . Love the floor plan, very disappointed in quality control and their initial response

Living room furnace vent success!

Success! With the floor vent in the mid bathroom , removed and with the help of my brother(smaller hands) and a small mirror and a flashlight. He was able to remove the regular duct tape that had been used (it had dried up and was rolled like parchment)) and tape the duct joint back together. It still looks like the duct roof has collapsed as there is only a 1” gap several feet down the duct but I turned on the furnace and now you can feel airflow from the living room vents about 3’ from the vent. This is great as before the vent barely got warm. If you want more info on the fix just pm me.
