ducted a/c

Just learned an interesting fact at the factory today. I asked Randy if my 14 had ducted air. He said yes and told me that I need to close the slide on the inside air conditioner to activate. I did and guess what? Air out the ducts. Am I the only knucklehead that didn't know this?

The vent on the a/c is called a quick kool dump to rapidly cool the trailer middle section.

Rich,
knuckle head is such a harsh word .... but well um so how's it working now? It's funny the things you find out about these MH's. They are so complicated.

Rich, now that you have discovered the ducts, have you experienced the "snow"?

I do have to say that those little slide tabs are pretty hard to see my particular unit. But I did know they were there from day one. :-)

When we get to camp on a hot day, we pop the vents on both A/C, turn on the ceiling fan, and run 'em for about 20 min while we are setting up. Cools the unit off real well.

Our 5er's LR A/C is way up there - found out the best way to open/close the vents is to use a campfire hot dog roaster

Thanks for all the support everyone. I haven't camped yet, but am taking a long trip in Aug to Colorado. The air is coming out of all ducts and it is much quieter. Cajun, have not experienced the snow yet. Phil, you're right, it is a learning experience. Keeps you on your toes! Great thing about this forum is the sharing of the experiences of all.
