Why does the floor vent behind the passenger seat in my RV blow hot air?
by Kris Jaastad

I have a 2004 32' Minnie Winnie and noticed a vent (looks like heat vent but can not close) on the floor behind the passenger seat. I can hear a sound like a fan running when the key is on. I'm guessing it's an engine vent of some sort? It blows pretty hot air into the motorhome while traveling.
Can you tell me for sure what this is? Can I cover it with something to keep the heat out of the motohome while traveling?
ANSWER Greetings Kris thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.
Well you have stumped me on this one. To my knowledge there should be no vents in an RV that should be blowing hot air unless it is a heater vent that has been turned on to run. My suggestion to you is that you take it to a Winnebago dealer and have them tell you what it is.
Please do me a favor and leave a comment on this page when you find out exactly what it is. This will help other RVers that might have the same question.
