As stated earlier use both AC units. During very hot & humid days set your fan switch to HI on each t-stat for the maximum air flow. We generally leave the bedroom t-stat fan switch set to ON but Low at night time just for air movement. The AC stills cycles on and off as needed. As for the Heat side, unless you had Strip Heaters added to your AC Units there will be no Heat coming out of the ceiling registers. Your T-stat would have a setting where you place the switch to Strip Heat.

I have the same low flow problems through the vents on my '08 373...

Had it in the shop two days ago and they say threes nothing wrong, but you can noticeably feel much more pressure and volume of air coming out of the vents from the rear air than then front.

The front ac can not keep up with the heat of the day and only gets comfortable at night. If we open the bypass slider and stand directly under the unit in the ac flow we can get cool. Once we move away, forget it. It's sweat city again.

The tech said he ran a fish tape through the vents and found nothing blocking them. I was thinking of using a fish tape to go down the duct,then tie a shop rag on and pull int back through the duct and see if that catches any blockage.

Don't know what else to do. Any suggestions?

I hope the new tinting on the windows will help too!

rxfiller - Be interested if you find anything that makes it better and how the tint works as my 07 373 has the same issues. IMHO the two 13,500 units are just not enough cooling power for when the heat gets up. Shades some help looking into window screening for the windshield. Good Luck,

I know what you mean all too well!

Also, the compartments by the ceiling in the front over the windshield and above the passenger side couch get so hot that it melted the plastic cased computer router I put in there!

FR really should have found a better way to protect these areas from heat. (just my 2 cents... )

And what really gets my goat is that when we first got the coach the ac seemed to work fine. I had it out for two weekend excursions and a week long 2400mi trip. The weekends were both here in the Florida heat, and it seemed to cool fine.

When I was getting ready for a cross country trip to Sturgis last year I took the coach in for some work. I figured I'd get the ac units serviced while it was in the shop. It was after that service and on the long cross country trip that the problem first surfaced.

I guess it's true. Don't fix it if it aint broke?

I'd still love any ideas someone may have.....

Does anyone know if the bedroom thermostat runs the bedroom a/c independently of the living room unit when you're on the generator and have both a/cs running?

They run independent on mine. It is also a 50 amp unit so it has no front /rear switch or anything like that also.
