Upgrade A/C registers to adjustable louvers

If anyone else has the non-adjustable (2016 and below, cant speak for 2017) louvers for their A/C returns in their ceiling, you may desire the ability to control flow. Here is a very easy fix that takes 60 seconds to swap all of them in your TH. Simply pull the current fixed louver unit out, leaving the ring that is screwed in (3 screws under neath) and then snap in the adjustable one. Identical under mount piece, same mfgr, simply the main unit swap.

What my unit came with:
D&W JetStream #8950
Venting Products / AC Vents / "Jet Stream" #8950 Wide Open Louvered RV AC Vent - DW Inc.

What you replace it with
D&W JetStream #8850
Venting Products / AC Vents / "Jet Stream" #8850 Fully Adjustable Large RV AC Ceiling Vent - DW Inc.

Here's some pics

Upgrade A/C registers to adjustable louvers

Thanks for posting. After reading this, I followed link you gave and ordered four for our Shockwave F28SAGDX fifth wheel. It took less than 30 seconds per vent to pop in the adjustable vents. Great upgrade 😊. Should have come that way, imho.
