No heat from driver side floor vents

Burrrr, 2012 allegro 36la. When dash heat is set to floor, PS vent will blow your foot off. The two hoses terminating on the DS blow at a trickle. I can see this 2" hose wind all over the place but cannot see any tight kink that would cause this.
Anybody else have this issue?

Try temporarily plugging the PS vent and see if the low out DS vent increases.
I had a similar problem on a former coach
Partially plugging the PS vent tube behind the register permanently solved the problem.

Many times they put the plastic hose on the heater outlet duct and attach only one screw. the hose can slip off the duct and cause loss of flow.

Mel, don't ask me why, but I never thought to restrict the PS to see if it increased the DS. When get back in it tomorrow am I'll do that. I guess I assumed there was a blockage isolated to the DS. Probably not the case.
Thanks Mel.

Ga traveler, I cannot even find where the hoses terminate at the housing. I'm gonna look harder in the am..
Thanks..

There are two floor vents on the DS. Both meet at a junction T and a single hose takes off to the PS and disappears under the PS dash area where the large distribution housing. I don't want to start tearing the dash apart. Covering the PS vent does push more air over to the DS but not as much as you would expect. I'll have to live with it..
