Warped heating duct. Any ideas?

Our heating ducting is warped upwards from the living room back to the bedroom (of course, the coldest area of the TT would be even more hindered from getting heat).

I'd love to eventually replace the ducting with something a little more solid. However, being a full-timer with insulation all around the base of the TT, replacing it now isn't an option.

Has anyone dealt with this, and have a solution, even if it is just temporary?

The ducting is so thin and flimsy. Wondering if I took a few thin pieces of plywood or something and at least shoved them in near the vents, to push the sides out a bit at the bottom, if that would flatten it out enough. It is about 7' or so between the living room vent and bathroom vent, so it might not be enough.

The other thing I don't look forward to when I DO replace the ducting is the protective layer on the underside of the RV.

Tips? Advice? Tell me to suck it up and deal with it, even with Montana weather?

You might try some thin 1/4 inch ply panels the same height of the sides and install vertically where you can reach thru a register. Just put ply in middle of duct.

I have some 3/8" OSB in the bedroom left over from the bed frame build. I could use that now that I think of it :]

Just a smidge over 1/4".
