Marvin,

If your heater vent is the same size as shown in the photo, a change to a larger one, like the one I added, will make a big difference. Anything that can be done to increase air flow will allow the heat exchanger to run cooler and lower the pressure in the plenum, so that the openings in it won't leak as much. This will get more of the heat into the coach and less under the cabinet. Good luck in gaining access to the heat exchanger.

Dale- how is the wood vent cover attached? Glue, screws, spring clips, spray adhesive, silly putty, velcro, wishful thinking?

I hafta deal somewhat w/mine @ the kitchen slide due to the kitchen sink drain coming undone @ the base of the shower when I operate the slide, so maybe I should upgrade the vent at the same time.

Mine was glued and had a few small brads holding it in. I used a stiff putty knife and worked slowly all the way around it. I was able to get it off with out damaging it. I don't know what I will ever use it for, but? Once it was out, there was plenty of room in the heater "outlet box" behind the cabinet face for the larger hole required for the new vent.
