Have you thought of maybe one of vacuum actuators are leaking vacuum causing the code when vacuum is applied or the hose to it?Thats all I can think of with the symptoms you are describing. So when you move the temp control all the way to max hot it triggers the code?

It looks like you may have a vacuum controled heater control valve look at the hoses going to your heater core see if there is one there?If there is one use a hand vacuum pump to see if it holds vacuum?

Looks like your blend door is not powered by vacuum.

Just to add, there is a vacuum elbow behind the throttle body on the pcv line that is common for collapsing and causing the lean codes
