Heat in Cabin

I have a 2014 Winne View. I have excessive heat entering the cab when I put either front cab windows down. It seems to come up through the gap formed at the junction between the cab floor and the riser of the cabin floor. It literally gets too hot to touch. Once windows are closed, it goes away. Anybody ever heard of that?

Glad to have you here with us. My best guess is that with the windows down you are allowing the air flow into the cab area. With them closed you have static pressure, so less heat comes in. This air flow should be stopped by finding the gap and sealing it. Someone else may have another idea.

I don't have a sprinter, but it's pretty obvious that you're creating low pressure when opening the windows. The low pressure in the cab, causes the engine area heat to be sucked up through whatever that gap is. I'd ask this in the Sprinter section and see what they say.. Is that riser removable? Is it in correctly?

Exactly, the low pressure allows the heated air to come in. Figure out how to seal it.

I have a 2008 View and have not experienced that, nor have I ever read of it being reported before. You might want to have the dealer look at it because it doesn't sound normal. You sure don't want air from the engine compartment being sucked into the vehicle, that is potentially unsafe.

Thanks...does your coach have a seal of some sort at that junction?

Talked with the area service rep, turns out that there is a seal missing and once attached, the problem should go away!

well, as it turns out, the seal they thought was missing was in place so the problem remains?? Rec'd a post on another forum where another owner of a sister ship is reporting the same issue???
