Question No air flow through AC duct vents?

I have not been able to figure out how to get the airflow through the duct vents to cool my Surveyor (2011). The AC runs and blows through the main unit to cool the cabin but when you close the vent no air blows through the ducts. Is there something that needed to be removed for the air to flow through the ducts?

You may have to check for obstructions.
Mirror up in the vent holes and such.
If its under warranty take it back to the dealer.
Either the case you should not have to do anything but close the quick cool dump at a/c unit.
Even with my quick cool open I still have flow through ducted a/c vents.
Its possible that Styrofoam has fallen into duct area.


Welcome to the forum!

Welcome to the forum first. Take a look at what I found inside my A/C housing.

Thanks,

I will have to take a look at that when I get home and see if that is the issue.

if you have the ducted a/c, there's a tab on the main screen that you slide to distribute cool air to the ducts or have it blow through the center area.
the PDI should have shown how it works.
i believe it's described in the a/c's manual.

I would say some FR employees forgot to pick up their lunch if you found that in your ductwork! Lol!
