Hey Dave, You want to take a look at mine? LOL

Sounds like your the one with some experience! Why two times?

I'm hoping mine is as simple as the cable out of adjustment. I have the dial temp control with cable. No heat. 20K on her when I purchased.

When you remove the lower trim panel you can see the mount on the top of the heater box. The control head is held in with four screws and can be pulled out just enough to see the cable mount.

This is the best overall photo I could find. Not sure how much Fleetwood has changed the dash over the years, if at all.

Wow! Real close to mine! I'm now sitting on the jeep, 9 deg. out getting ready to pump gas :-(
Will try and get a pic of ours if the door is not frozen shut. -33 by Wed. night.

Looking at your pix your dash is similar to mine but much better looking. Looks like you need to remove the cup holder extension. Then the lower cover (the curved ply covered in vinyl). I see one vent for the passenger seat foot aria. This vent will stay but the duct attached can be disconnected after removal. I don't see a carpet trim on the lower edge but you should find a few screws holding this panel in. Once you get the screws removed the panel will slide out and may take some fiddling. Once this panel is removed you should have access to hvac box and all controls. You didn't say if your hvac control panel has a slide lever for temp adjustment. If so with the lower panel removed you can check blend door operation and adjust cable as needed.

I forgot!! The switch panel will need to be removed also. Just unscrew and separate the switches from each other, they snap together, then push switches thru hole they were removed from so you don't need to mark and disconnect any wiring.

Thanks for the heads up on removing the curved piece. I thought I needed to remove the piece on the right that has the step cover attached to it. Now to run out to storage and get it done. My heater controls are rotary, 1 rotary knob for fan speeds, 1 rotary knob to select which ducts the air comes out of, 1 rotary knob to adjust the temperature, and 2 buttons, 1 for the A/C, and 1 that controls the recirculation door.It is pictured below. According to the Denso documentation there is a screw with a clamp that you adjust the cable with near the heater core housing, which is I suspect where my problem is.

yours will have a stepper motor for the blend door. It will be a small square box mounted on top of your hvac box, it will have a five wire connector to it and its about the size of a deck of cards. You can remove stepper and use a small pair of needle nose plyers to move blend door. You can see if you get hotter air or you can feel if an object is blocking the blend door. I cant count the amount of straws, pencils and pens I have removed from heater boxes!

Now I am confused about the servo. According to Denso and Fleetwood the recirculating door has a servo motor on it, but the heater blend door is cable controlled. I asked them about the servo motor for the temp control and both said mine was cable controlled as it is a 5 outlet box. I would have thought if there was a stepper motor pulling on the cable would not have worked. Would not be the first time Fleetwood gave me bad info, and hope I don't have to try and figure out what I have instead of what they think I have.
Below are the diagrams from Denso on what should be there according to the Denso part number on the heater housing on bulk head.

You might have a cable driven by the rotary temp knob and I might be wrong about the stepper motor or servo. You can then check cable adjustment as your problem sounds like the blend door is not traveling to the full hot position.
