A/C Balancing

Hi All, I have a new, 2015 Freedom Express 320BHDS LE and on our first long, hot summer trip, my wife noticed a very annoying issue with the air conditioning. The air flow from the ceiling ducts in the bunkhouse is extremely strong and the room gets very cool. The air flow in the front bedroom is minimal and we are not getting good cooling. This is a single A/C unit. We have tried adjusting the vents, but when closing the vents in the bunkhouse we don't see any increase in flow at the other vents in the trailer and instead we get a 'whistling' from the vents. Anyone else have this type of problem? Is there a way to balance the flow so we can get even cooling throughout the tt?

air is going to always take the easiest path out. Close a few of the bunkhouse vents as you did, but also close a couple of the vents closest to the AC unit so it's forced to the front bedroom. I do this with my 5th wheel, and makes a noticeable difference.

Be careful closing vents, if the roof top a/c doesn't have enough air flow across the coils it can and will freeze up.
Been there, done that, wrote the book.
