Open up the vent ,the last one in line in bunk room.I bet there is no stop for the air.It continues on past the vent hole into nowhere.Put cardboard stopper up there with foil tape and you should be good.My brothers and mine were the same way.Fixed with above method and air flow doubled atleast.No problem with keeping bunk room cool now with temps in 90s in full sun.

I did the same and it works great. But I also cut another vent in mine since it only came with one. Much better now.

I'm with Golfmedik. Our 12' only had one vent and both the bunkhouse and master bedroom vents blew on to only God knows where. I popped out each of the "last run" vents and added aluminum tape to create a solid stop. Then I dropped each and every other vent, and found not only that there was a ton of crap up there, styrofoam pieces and wood scraps that blew out (do this with the fan on high) but also that the ducting was lifting in some places allowing the cold air to run in-between the ceiling and the roof. I put aluminum tape on all the vents wrapping it around the circle cut out and folding it back down inside the duct in the ceiling. All this made a HUGE difference. I was about to do the 3 a/c mod and glad we waited. The bunkhouse still gets about 2-3 degrees warmer then the living room, but it's tolerable now.

Air conditioner

Exactly what I did.I opened up front bedroom vents too.Again no stop,air just went past last vent to cool the ceiling! Ridiculous FR did this,this way.Its obviously not a mistake on one unit since it appears they are all done this way.At any rate its an easy fix and makes the A/C much more efficient..
