No A/C vent in bathroom

I have a 2016 308BHS, was wondering is there should be an A/C vent in bathroom? It gets so hot in it and it's not even peak summer temps yet. Right now I'm setting a stand fan outside the doorway to get cool air in. But when the door is shut it's hard to stay in and get business done.

I do not have a heat vent or A/C vent in mine either. But with the 3" cut under the door and turning the exhaust fan on high it will help for A/C but not for heat, I put a small heater in the doorway to warm the bathroom, I was also surprised why they never put one in. To add a heat vent wouldn't be a problem you can always put a toe kick vent under the sink area, but there is no way to put A/C in. The so called A/C ducts are just 4" bored tunnels through the styrofoam that's why you will always have the white little chunks now and then that come out. I still get them and my trailer is 4 years old...

Only if you know where that channel is located. Lets say that you measure the distance from the wall to the center of each vent and they line up then yes it could be done. I have 6 ceiling vents that look like they are all in a row, but never measured them. Then measure the wall in the bathroom and see where it passes. I would think then a 4" whole saw would all it take. But remember if you miss you have a 4" whole in the ceiling but you could always patch that with a false register. Youroo the old saying measure twice and cut once...

Looks like a Good plan! There have been several post lately about "Roof/Attic Vents" where members have removed the covers to find that the Covers were just placed there to "Cover a Hole that was Mis Drilled"! Youroo!!

It might be that they did not install an AC vent to prevent folks from feeling the cold blast of air on their wet bodies when that got out of the shower. When I did HVAC install we were always very careful in the bathroom not to point vents toward showers or tubs. I have heat but no AC in my TT also have the door cut to allow airflow

we have a heat register but no A/C we do have the vent doors (top and bottom are shorter than the frame to allow ventalization. we just turn the fan on and it draws the air thru. but somethin you could do, is get a grill and cut thru your door and install a grill in the door (down low) . to allow air thru there whether anyone is in their or not. I am thinking a grill that is usually for a air return in homes

We have 2 AC vents in the bedroom and they both line up with the AC vents in the living room, so it stands to reason that the tunnel from the AC unit is a straight shot thru the bathroom into the bedroom. Wouldn't bother me to measure from the wall and cut a hole for a circular vent similar to the others.

Do you have ducted air? If you do the ducts run in a straight line from each side of the air conditioner. One side runs forward and the other runs rearward. If your bathroom is mid coach one of the ducts could be running over the bath. Look at your ceiling vents and line them up front to rear , if you have ducts in front of the bath and to the rear of the bath inline over the room you can get an air duct preferably one that can be shut down to control air flow, and bore a hole the size needed. Bore the hole or use a razor knife to cut a hole. Be sure and duct tape between the duct and ceiling panel.

In our Flagstaff, both run from the rear of the coach forward no returns.
I would use one like this so you don't have to worry about duct taping.

We can turn one of the bedroom vents and aim it into the bathroom also.
