On our Pegasus 624 the "fire" works fine on 2KW and warms the living area fine. If I turn the blower on to include heating the bathroom and bedroom, the heat dissapears from the lounge end. The rear warms up OK but the lounge outlets blow cold thus reducing the temperature of the front end near to the "fire" I have tried to adjust the baffles at the rear to reduce the flow of air (and heat ) to the rear and increase it to the lounge vents, but it still blows cold. Does anyone have any sugestions how to cure this problem?

I have tried to insullate the ducts that run underneath the van. It does not improve the heating to the front of the van. Is it a design or specification fault of Bailey because of the equipment fitted is not fit for purpose?
I had similar when our van was new, basically not set up properly. The way to check is to remove the duct from the back of the fire, turn the blower on and check for even temperature on both fromt and rear outlets. The balance is adjustable with a lever.
Anyway, once you have warm air at both outlets re-attach the ducting and then make the minor adjustments to re-balance for the different pipe lengths.
If it's still cold, try using both gas and electricity to get the fire really hot before turning on the blower.
