Vent Under Fridge

On my '96 Winnebago Adventurer I have a vent near the floor almost under my fridge. It looks like an air vent. When I am driving warm air comes from this and is preventing my coach from being really cool. I have searched my owner's manual, but cannot determine what this is. Any suggestions. By the way when I last noticed this I was running my gen. and fridge was on AC.

Hi joelm,
This question is specific to Winnebago and the Adventurer model. Consider posting the question in the Winnebago Owners forum. On the iRV2 main page scroll a little more than 1/2 way down. You'll see the Owner Forms, listed by brand.

Pop the grill off it may be your return for gas furnace.
Warm air from outside is being suck-in by AC's.

It may be a return air vent for the furnace or the vent that allows cool air in for the converter.

Do you have the Motor-Aid option with the rear heater option? If so the area in the vicinity of the rear heater fan/radiator gets pretty warm while you are traveling.

On my coach the Motor-Aid fan/radiator is under the refrigerator back against the outside wall. There is a return air vent on the wall beside the right side of the refrigerator for that.

I have a vented floor furnace, but I'm not aweare of a rear heat option. This vent looks exactly like the heat vents on my lower dash.

joelm you could block the furnace vent with some insulation or possibly maybe you have a filter missing for that vent area that your MFG provided.
