Maybe it was on here somplace I saw a drawing showing something like that.
Some hot air furnaces have a "summer circulation switch" on the fan that might let you see if using the fan side of you furnace to circulate air to equal tempratures from hot n cold spots in the house
Yea i thought of that one high which i have that sucks warm air in and add another one lower to blow out to the kitchen.. I'm not to sure about the summer circulation switch i don't see any thing on the furnace maybe on the circuit board its about a 4 year old propane furnace only used it a few times.I would like to try another wall through fan mounted lower but my wife will probably have a hissy.. I had a hard enough time convincing her to let me install the one..

I would try an experiment of hooking up a temporary 6 inch line across the floor from the convection fan to the far corner of the bedroom. If it worked, I would hide it under the floor. Then I would test the other end of the house.
Another experiment would be to remove the convection fans from the pioneer, instead hook the connection into the the cold air return, reversing the flow of air through the coal stove. Block the Normal cold air returns, and as TimV said, turn on the furnace fan, on it's lowest setting. This would suck air out of the warmest room and circulate to all rooms.
I don't use the furnace at all so maybe i could just run my venting directly to the cold air return for the bedroom. Or just put a small grate in the corner of the bedroom and run it to the convection of the pioneer..
