So far as I can tell, our second AC is not ducted. It simply dumps into the bedroom, straight down on the bed (which is the preferred scenario from my wife at this time in our lives!). When only the rear AC is running, I do feel some very slight airflow through the ducts but I think it's just the pressure equalizing through the coach. If both were ducted and running at the same time, you'd have the airflow from each direction fighting one another inside the ducts.

Not true sir, you get more air flow!

There is NO difference between a ducted and non ducted a/c unit.

The things that make them ducted or non ducted are :
1) control module
2) ceiling diffuser
3) thermostat
4) cut outs in the atttic

I concur. If the OP is having trouble with the original unit not cooling the living area, he should open the bottom dump and forget the ducting until things cooled off.

I believe his divider plate may have came loose such as mine did.


When this happens you get no air flow in the vents.

Turbs is correct. I have two units and airflow increases when both units are on.

My current fiver, 2015 Wildcat 327 ck, has two ducked ACs. They
both put the cool air into the same duck and it is very nice. When I had a stand
alone 2nd AC in the bedroom of my last fiver, it was noisy and very hard to control.
It is on or off. You could turn it up or down. After having that I new that only the two ducked units was the way to go in SE Texas. Good Luck
