From the Solver Manager, look for Export to ANSYS.

You can't export an RTH file, but the CDB file can be used to do what you are referring to. You'll have to check the ANSYS doc as to what to do with it. I think the heating coil tutorial in CFX may cover this to some extent.

The export from the CFX Solver Manager will require ANSYS Multiphysics. If you do not have that it will not work for you this way.

The other route is to import your ANSYS structural mesh into CFX Post using the option File -> ANSYS Import/Export. First export your surface mesh from ANSYS in CDB format, then import that into CFX Post using File -> ANSYS Import/Export -> Import ANSYS CDB Surface..., then use Export ANSYS Load file after than.
