A/C in your face

I gotta know. Anyone figured out a good way to keep the A/C From blowing in your face all night? In the Clipper 17FQ, no matter how we seem to adjust the vents, the design of the camper funnels the windstorm right on top of us, leading to dry throats and potential sniffles.

I'm thinking some command hooks on the ceiling and hanging a cloth across the vent to temper the airflow.

Anyone with any thoughts?

I have seen people use plain old cardboard, cut and formed and then attached near the vents to divert air. You just don't want to restrict the air, that could cause it to freeze up. I am sure you could come up with something like that, only that would look better. Maybe, detachable.

We can rotate ours and adjust the vanes.

We were able to shut off the vent on our old Dometic in the popup, but this Coleman eve. Rotating the vent 90 degrees upward leaves a slot across the bottom.

Better that than freeze up the unit, I guess.

Curtains might be my best bet.

Follow-up:

The curtain worked like a champ. We got two clear command hooks and a long lightweight curtain rod to span the distance from the upper cabinets on both walls.

We need something (another curtain rod, probably) to weigh down the flapping from the A/C blowing the curtain up, but...

No sniffles this go around!!!

My first thought was to sew a hem/pocket across the bottom of the curtain and put ball bearings in it, keeping them spaced out by sewing vertical seams every 2 inches or so in the hem/pocket.
