Furnace outlets too close to cabinets in Tuscany?

Howdy Thor folks,

In my '13 Tuscany 40, the front gas furnace outlets are under the kitchen cabinets and blow hot air onto the inside of the bottom board on the cabinets.

We used the front furnace for about an hour over the weekend and it got the bottom of the cabinet almost too hot to touch. My cabinets (like most)are constructed of a wrapped wood product and I am very concerned this will lead to peeling of the wrap in the areas that get hot from the furnace outlets.

A heat shield may need to be fabricated and installed. Anyone notice the same problems with their Tuscany or any Thor product that has this configuration? What did you do to remedy it?

Maybe something I shouldn't worry about?

The kitchen vent in our '08 Hurricane is exactly the same. It does get hot, but hasn't caused any problems.
