Thor 2020 Class C, wife gets hot

Got a 2020 Thor four winds class C Ford v 10, wife complains that her passenger side floor gets extremely hot , and it does. my side has no problem. Anybody else got this problem? and any fixes will be appreciated. Been RVing 50 years so been around the blook a few times but don't have a fix for this. Have put heavy aluminum foil on her floor and in the openings of the engine cowling.

The exhaust is probably routed on her side. You can try insulation on the underside of the floor if there is room. Aside from that there isn’t much that can be done. Dual exhaust on my corvette has a pipe going down each side. The heat we get inside the car is insane. It can be February and the exhaust will heat the car.

Insulate the floor. Remove the seat to make it easier. Insulate under the engine cover with better mat. Insulate under the cab right over the exhaust, especially where the cover meets the floor pan. If up to the job, form a metal piece or duct work to force air flow onto the exhaust.

When arriving, pop open the hood until the engine cools. Especially in summer.

My wife had the same complaint. I insulated the floors and the dog house on ours. It helped a lot. Bit of pain but worth the effort. It also quitted down the engine noise a good bit. FYI the dog house has factory insulation which I removed then reinstalled over the new barrier I installed. Use a heat/sound barrier like dynmat

Hot Wife!

Your title got my attention!

Another thing you can do is get some insulated/foil backed material and apply it under the floor and against the backside of the doghouse area. Hotrod shops sell it in different thickness and sizes. Try "Jegs" or "Speedway Motors".

Good luck, and I'm sure you will have a "Cool Wife" soon!

This is what I used to stop the heat on the passenger side of my V-10 E450. Thermo-Tec 14620 60" X 36" Heat and Sound Suppressor. I think I used three sheets of it. Did the whole floor from up on the firewall to behind the seats and the inside of the doghouse. Took the seats out to get the rubber flooring out better. Then I got a whole floor carpet mat to cover the rubber flooring. Now you can be bare foot on the passenger side and not burn your feet, even during summer driving.
