A/c ducting on sierra sport 38sp

I just purchaed trailer is a 2005 Forest River 38sp Toy Hualer and the a/c works great and is cold but seems to be only blowing out of the main unit at the ceiling is this how it is supposed to work, reason I ask there is many vents on ceiling throughout trailer and nothing is coming out of those I thought it was ducted or on the toy haulers are those all for the heater only? I know my last trailer is was all ducted but it was a standard 5th wheel not toy hauler. Hopefully someone can shed light on this.

Typically, the vents in the roof are for A/C and the vents in the floor are for the furnace.

Is there a slide in the cover of ac? it needs to be closed. If not then there is a possibilty that unit was replaced with a nonducted type unit.

On the cover inside your camper there should be a large removable cover that flips down this has a filter in I next to it is on smaller grates in the middle of it is a slide that openes and closes this changes the air flow movment

Sounds like The A/C unit is set on 'quick cool' which is an open vent right on the unit. If you slide that closed, the air will be diverted to the ducts.

THanks guys this is exactly what was wrong the slide that closes off the main vent was missing so it was just pumping into main cabin, I got a new one installed it and now works great. Thanks again
