This is the second forest river camper of three that I've had this happen.

ac not cool enough

In regard to my ac which I believe is not cool enough, I do not believe I ever heard compressor come on (I could be wrong here), the therm/fan will run forever. I feel some cool air in bedroom, and out of the quick cool vents, but the living room vents are marginal. I have plenty of water coming off the roof from the unit. with that said, does water coming out mean the compressor is working? this is my third rv and I never had this problem even in the summer in desert with one unit. Thanks for any input!!!

I just sent a certified letter regarding this issue to my dealer and forest river (prob a waste of ink). I have had 2 previous tt's and they would run you out they were so cold. If I were not in Wyoming now I could not live in it (we r fulltiming for now)) it seems to be an issue with others too Randall. I cannot get any service here in the middle of nowhere and any other place states 6 weeks to get me in and some said they have too much business now and since I did not buy there they will not squeeze me in. so....I know a guy in az who will look at it when we get down that way.

I final convinced my dealer after having camper for a week that there is not enough air flow. They tried to tell me was working fine with 82 return and 53-55 supply. I own an air conditioning company, I had to explain to them that won't fly. Factory is no help so far, told they what they need to do, increase return, mine has ducted return and supply. It is way too restrictive, gave them two options in my opinion they can install return below unit like they used to be or tear off roof and rebuild. Factory tried to blame Coleman, they concurred not enough air flow. Dealer is getting new returns to add while they wait days for response from factory. I've read too many posts about this same issue to believe factories are unaware of the problem by now.

Sucks that we have to go through all this BS to get the manufacturer to do what's right.

When you open the quick cool down sliders on the ceiling, does it blow plenty of air?

That's the thing, they took out the quick cool vents and went fully ducted, just too small of return. Had dealer add return with quick cool damper on ceiling below units.
