Cabin heat melts my shoes!

Almost literally :)

When I turn on the cabin heat in my warrior, the air comes out real real hot. To the point where my feet burn, and the rubber soles soften up!

The cabin control seems to really control flow, and not temperature, so fiddling with that doesn't seem to really help.

Last trip, I realized I could open the vent that are on the bottom of the sidewalls, and put my feet next to it, to keep the feet cooler while the hot air does a good job of keeping the rest of the cabin comfortable. Thank god for that rudder trim!

Is it just me or is this a common issue? Any one else have other solutions?
