i feel alot of heat coming in through the floor of my car. is this common with rivs and it seems like hot air is alway coming from the vents even if my temp is at 60 degrees. Mainly the back seat vent.

If you have the climate control off, and you have it turned down to 60, it'll essentially pass through air directly from the outside or heat it to 60 and then pass it through. If you turn the heat up, it'll heat the air to that temp and adjust for the difference in temp between the outside air and the set temperature. It's a feature that keeps air flowing regardless whenever you are moving.

So if you have the climate control temp set to 60, say, and the A/C is *on*, and you are still getting hot air then you have a blend door that's stuck. THere are a bunch of other posts and a write up on this site detailing what to do about that.
