Vibe Air Circulation

There was a previous thread concerning how the AC does not have a straight path into the sleeping area of 6501s & 6502s (maybe others). Thought I would share our solution. The pictures show a diverter fitted to the side outlet of the AC. Closing the front exhausts really kicks out good flow from the rear outlets, but they blow straight back into the bath (on the 6501). You can channel more air into the sleeping area by:
* Fitting some sort of thin material (cardboard) to cover the space above the bathroom door. This diverts the air into the "hallway" between the sleeping area and the main area.
* Add a diverter to the AC as shown. That side vent puts out a LOT of air.
* Use a small fan to help circulate the cool air around the sleeping area. We found a Vornado Under Cabinet folding fan that works great and folds out of the way when not in use.

I like the idea of directing the air back, even though our 6503 has the doorway in the middle there is not a lot of air that flows to the back of the camper. My wife likes it cold and often complains about it being to warm.
