This is what I found: When I looked under the main unit cover, I was able
to see a foam tape membrane that seals off the cold air from the warm
(return) and that membrane was bulging. I could push on it, and it seemed
like the unit had more air pressure then it could push out. I do know what
you mean, it seems like it doesn’t push much air through the vents but I
think that’s from the diffusing of the air. I popped the air vent covers
off the last air vent in the bunk house, and the last air vent in the
master and the pressure seemed to be released. That’s when I decided the
unit could use some more vents.
Here are the pictures of the additional 3 vents with one open where you can
see how I taped off all vents including the original factory vents to
ensure all air was coming through the vents and not into void areas.
Since it seems these trailers are manufactured on the fly, I would suggest measuring from your existing vents and not going by my measurements.
The first pic, you see in the living room where I cut in the 3rd vent, forward of the main AC unit, on the slide-out side.
Second pic, shows master bedroom, you can see where I cut in the 2nd vent, near the sliding door but in line with the vent factory installed by the closet.
Third pic shows how I taped off all factor and new vents, and this vent was in the bunkhouse, just on the bathroom side of the seam in the ceiling, in line with the factory installed vent.
Someone mentioned they had a 2012 with only 1 vent in the kitchen area. Someone else had also mentioned that. That was an original design. Mine has a vent above the sink, and then again closer to the refrigerator.
I hope this helps.
