Hot Dog House

I have a 1999 gas rig. There is hot air streaming out of the dash. I have had numerous gas rigs, but have never had hot air like this before. Lots of hot air. Eveything seems to be secure and in place under the dash. The wheel wells are open to the engine compartment. I have resorted to stuffing foam rubber under the dash to decrease the flow. I have a fan pointing down to redistribute the hot air, and run the dash air (man I hate to do that) to try to cool it. Of course I run the cabin air also. Any thoughts on how to get the air out of the engine compartment better?

The air coming thru the dash vents?
Heater/AC fan on?
The heater control not working?, the door could be stuck diverting air thru the heater.

Not through the dash vents. Doesn't matter if fan on. The dash AC works well through the dash vents. I'll check the heater control. I think the line may be dry rotted. Thank you for the suggestions. I'll let you know what happens.

regardless

a fan, or Two pulling air from the dog house, like the bilge on a boat area is a BIG help and may save future mechanical problems

Like the Starter, wiring and top hose connected to the thermostat.
