Rick, welcome to iRV2. You need to post a bit more information...Size and model of the Arctic Fox. There should be floor vents in the various rooms. If your furnace is mounted to the rear of the trailer, it may have trouble pushing air all the way to the front. It is possible you have a dust or hose loose.

I assume that the furnace is operating , but not enough to heat the bedroom. We had the same problem with our 36' 5th wheel , and solved this with an oil-filled radiator type heater from Tractor Supply for about 40 bucks. these heaters have no fans, no exposed heat source, so they are quiet and as safe as you can get and still get heat . they put out a lot more heat than you would expect from a heater this size. only - is you have to have 120 volt power to run em

I have had luck in putting a 12v booster fan in the duct to the frt bedroom and have the fan come on when the furnace comes on depending on the trailer will depending on the wiring.

I had a duct fan in one 5er to help with the air to the front bedroom.
Shop SUNCOURT 4" In-Line Double Crimped Duct Fan at Lowes.com

I replaced all of the foil type ducting in my Alpenlite 27sl with full 4 inch dryer vent ducting , 4 inch aluminim ducting and sheetmetal KD elbows. Paying close attention to clean bends and sweeps. My outlet temp before was 125f and 170f after.
