Adding 3rd A/C in garage 386x12HP

I have two A?C's, one in the main area, ducted to all 3 areas, and the second in master bedroom with it's own thermostat. What would be involved in adding a third just for the garage? I've already closed off the vents in the bedroom to increase the flow for the main cabin and the garage. But it's not enough to cool the garage. Any help would be great..

Is it prewired for an ac? Is there a white blank faceplate on the ceiling next to the vent in the garage?

We have a 2012 386*12 and added a third ac with a heat strip works wonders. Dropped it in the vent and rand a channel down the guides for the bed and put in its own 30 amp twist lock. Well well worth it

No blank plate--I take it that means no.

Not a bad idea on the channel. Thanks

Typically, but unscrew the trim ring on the vent and take a look around. They may have wires tucked in the "attic" space.
