2003 Winnebago Journey Dl 39WD - Hole Under Bed

Hello everyone,

I have the following hole/opening under the bed in the master. It's allowing a lot of very hot air ( ~120F ) to come in while we're driving.


1. Can that hole/opening be covered/insulated?
2. Is there supposed to be something already covering it that maybe a previous owner removed and didn't properly restore?

I have a '02 Journey DL and it has a large metal cover under the bed. I have to remove large bolts to remove it to access any of the diesel engine under the bed.

I can't tell from your picture what style you have really, so I'm a bit confused. Need more pictures. But I don't have ANY exposed wood under my bed at floor level. It's all metal. And since your opening is wood, there's no harm in covering it by whatever means at your disposal. Being it's wood that means the heat it's exposed to should not be hot enough to overheat it.

Do you have a N-S bed, or W-E?

I'm guessing the hole is about 4" x 10". I would cover it with something that is not particularly flammable. Maybe a piece of plywood with the expandable foam spray to fill in the gaps.
