A/C vent near the floor?

In the 2014 - 27n - there is a ceiling-style a/c vent near the floor in the bedroom. Neither heat nor A/c come out of this vent.

Does anyone know what this might be?

THANKS in advance for your response...

Is it an air intake. In our rig, their is an intake vent for every AC outflow vent. Difference is the outflow vents have adjustable louvers and the intake does not. Propane furnaces also must have at least one intake usually close to the floor .

That should be the furnace intake vent. I'm not aware of any A/C intake vents of any kind.

My rig has an air intake (near the furnace) and a 2nd one under the dash (Dash A/C) both look like vents. I mean if you are going to blow either hot or cold air out of the outlets,, You got to take it in somewhere.

I do believe that it is the vent to allow heat to go into holding tank compartments.

On my 2006 sightseer it was heat from the engine just like the heat under the dash. There was a switch on the dash. I think the switch was labeled "rear heat".

In our last rig, all air intake came from the large furnace intake under the fridge. It handled the furnace and the AC. In our new rig, their is an intake for every output vent. These provide air for the AC/Heat Pumps. The furnace intake is under the washer/dryer stack. Lots of types of rigs and apparently more than one way to skin a cat. We have a rectangular grill near the floor on the Kitchen Island/return. Looks like a speaker grill but can't determine if sound comes out of it. Would be a subwoofer if that is the case. Only had the rig a year so lots of learning left. We also have the rear heat from the automotive heating system. Threads like these are interesting.

Based on what you described and the location of the vent, I would guess it is a heat vent. I have one of these in my bedroom and bathroom. Both produce heat. Maybe the ducting is not hooked up properly?
