That is what forest river says needs to be done to fix the problem. I had mine done yesterday and there doesn't seem to be any more noise. Now it's hard to tell if it really made a difference as the temp cooled down and the RV was already down to 73 when the vents where installed. The real test will be when we move to the next campground and the RV gets hot while in transit and then we'll see how well it cools it down because with out the new vents it took forever to get below 80.

Alrighty then ... if it fixes your heat issue, that's what counts. The configuration I'm talking about is separate in ceiling ducts for supply and return air. Some of us call it the "Whisper Quiet" configuration. There is no longer an inside grill with a quick dump door below the A/C units on the roof. (really cools the immediate area, but noisey) Installing the second set of in ceiling vents closer to the unit may be an alternate answer to bypassing possible collapsed ducts near the OEM return vents.

I had similar problems on our PDEK. Took top off main unit, pulled up foam cover and found two holes as big as a fist where wiring had been run. Used aluminum tape to seal. Now air goes out duct and not into the "attic".

Anyone have pictures of any of these issues? I was told that our problem was a freeze sensor falling out of its holder and unsealed duct work. I'm waiting for our roof to be replaced before we get it back, stupid tree, thank God for insurance! I did screen shot some of the posts and send them to my service manager and asked if he checked for these issues before I get it back. Told him it would be easier if he verified that these weren't going to be problems while he still had it before I brought it back because it still wasn't cooling.

Put pvc tubing in return vent to hold it open . The duct does seem to be undersized.

I have a Dometic system, 3 years old. Just had the repair tech out yesterday. I was low on refrigerant, but not out. He soaped up the system and could not find a leak,in any of the visible tubing the tech thinks there is a pin hole someplace. He added "refrigerant stop leak" and re charged the system. (yes there is a port for that) and so far so cold! $100.00. Hopefully this solves the problem for good.

Happy camping ya'll!

The pvc pipe must be working. The unit is cycling properly and holding the inside temperature at 70. It's 96 outside now. Thanks everyone for the ideas and input.

What size PVC pipe did you use? Schedule 40 or 200?

It was just some sch 40 1 1/2"or 2" I had laying around. I cut 3 pieces for each side about 10" long and used the second one to push first one, etc. Holds duct open and makes it slightly larger.
