I had posted on this forum I think under the "appliance and electronics" section as to what I found when I started looking at how the A/C ducts are sealed but were not sealed. When I checked the ends of the ducting I found that they were open on each end of the camper. This was cooled A/C air just going into the attic area. The A/C unit itself had been taped off poorly from the factory. I used a heavy duty 4" wide aluminum foil type tape I bought form an industrial supply business. There is definitely an increase in air coming from the A/C unit now.

How did you see far enough to the ends to know it was open? I'm not sure I can see that far on mine.

I didn't look in them, sorry. I used a tool electrician's use called a "fishing rod". It's a flexible fiberglass rod maybe 3/8" diameter. I slid it into the duct work to find the end of the duct work. The rod went into the duct work a distance close to the distance from the register to the front and back walls respectively. I then used the type of pipe insulation that is round and black. I cut a piece a bit longer than the width of the duct, then sort of mashed it to fit the height of the duct and pushed it in maybe 2-3 inches. I believe that the ends of the duct were open and my cooled air was going out into the attic.

I'm going to have to do that on both ends. Appreciate the explanation.
