Well, I went ahead today and pulled the bed and the strand board under it.  I found out whey the register was located where it was:  there is no other choice.  To move it like I was suggesting in my posts above would require cutting a big chunk out of stud that is the main support for the wall and bathroom door in the 2350.  So, I could not really improve much on what Phoenix did when they made the unit.  

Here is what I did find when I got a light and really got into this little project.  The duct (which is smaller going to the bath) is ducted off the top of the heater.  The larger ducts going to the rest of the unit are from the side.  Space is TIGHT and from the top of the duct as it comes out of the heater, there simply is no room to accommodate a larger piece of duct.  

BUT, here was a couple of other things to consider.  The original owner had purchased the super duper sound system and there is a woofer located under the bed.   Help

When it was installed, the little duct going to the bathroom was rerouted around and longer than necessary.  I examined it and found four places where it had been slit between the register and heater during installation.   So, I shortened it as much as possible and rerouted it for one less turn and used commercial quality duct tape to repair the tears/slits.   Where the duct was attached to the register it was torn almost in half, down to the spiral wire (which is really strong stuff).  

After the repairs and shortening, it puts out significantly more air but still blows mostly on the john.  I went to Home Depot and Lowes but could not find a diverter like Ann posted about with pictures above, so I will make one that will force the air to the side and hope all this helps warm things up a bit.   It is in the low 30s at night where we are going.

I've got 2 of the red clearance lights out. Stopped at couple of places can not seem to find a replacement.  Does anyone know the brand, I think the size if either 21/2 or 3 inches,, the black circle is @ 1/2 inch they are a solid light  you have to replace the whole unit.  were on the road and when I pulled into a Camping World about 8 people in line and I did not want to waste an hour standing in line.  thanks in advance

Yep, I've seen the water left on disaster issue also. I always leave the water line hooked to the pedestal, not the RV if we stay for a few days, but I never leave the power cord hooked when we leave for awhile. Too expensive to replace these days if "misplaced"

For what it's worth, before we towed a car, we'd simply disconnect the electric, water and cable and leave them at the campsite coiled on the ground. In all the time we did that there was never a problem and everything was exactly where and how we'd left it.
BTW, never, ever leave you unit without shutting off the water at the source. I've seen a number of people come back to their unit to be met with a very wet surprise.

I don't mind undoing the water and power, but I HATE securing everything inside. I always miss something and am real sorry

You have a very good point Bobojay.  Dale and I have done a lot of "touring" type travel, without a toad, since we bought our PC last October.  We currently have almost 8,000 miles on our PC 2350.  I think I would be perfectly happy never towing again.  We used to tow a 35' fifth wheel and I hated towing. . . . . . . But, Dale and I are retired now and we want to escape the St. Louis winters.  We plan on going to warm climates and staying put for three our four months at a time, so Dale wanted a vehicle to run around in while the PC stays hooked up.  I don't think we will tow for every situation, but for our "Winter Escapes" we'd like an extra vehicle.

Thanks again for you responses.

Cindy, sounds like you guys are kinda changing your RVing style a bit, and there's nothing wrong with that at all. I understand about wanting a smaller vehicle around if you are stationary for awhile.
We did the small car rental this year when we were down in Florida for a couple weeks earlier this year. It was nice to have that small vehicle just because of the traffic for sure.

My only suggestion to help save the wear and tear on your Sprinter drivetrain & brakes, is to unhook and drive separate when you get into hilly &/or mountainous areas. That's what we would do if the situation arose, but in our case, we're not going to own another Sprinter RV so it's a moot point.
Enjoy!

Paul, We used to tow but will go sans toad when we pick up our 2400 next month.  We may possibly stay at a NP campground for up to a week and rely on the PC for sightseeing.  Please elaborate which tasks leaving camp you found most irritating.

Cindy, we went through the same thought process when we got our Ford 2350.  We have had Class B Roadtreks for years and just used them like a car.  Now, with a little big larger rig we tried no toadie for a few trips and decided we would tow for the first time in our lives.  We tend to stay put for at least a week or so at a time and simply didn't want to break down the rig when we wanted to go somewhere.  We now tow and find our Jeep lots of fun when we get there.  When we had the Bs, we tended to tour more and now we camp longer.

Have you considered just getting a long term rental when you get where you are going?  Shop around and I have been told (no personal experience with this) that you can get some very attractive deals longer term with mileage limitations which are adequate.  Good, safe and adequate towing equipment is not cheap and would pay for lots of gas getting to and from in a vehicle.

Another thing we considered:  I would drive the PC and my wife would follow me in the vehicle.  That might be a viable option for some folks, particularly if they are planning to stay many weeks in one locale.   We finally decided to heck with it and just try towing.
