Attachment 64432 Or like this?

These have a foam like filter behind them or should otherwise they were never installed. The second one is like mine on my wildcat.

No and
no.
They look like this:

and all 4 of mine have really thin foam dust filters... much thinner than my old trailer with a unit such as in your picture 2.

That was my first thought when I first them - just waiting for someone else to say it.

Our Crusader is the same ....it is fully ducted - no noisy panel hanging out of the ceiling - super quiet and supposedly 75% more efficient

It is called Quiet Cool or something like that - used in motorhomes mostly and now in some fifth wheels

Found it on Dometic web site..

Dometic introduces the QuietZone™ Ducted Air System featuring its High Performance air conditioner (HP), the industry’s only RV air conditioning system that utilizes a 15,000 BTU high-performance air compressor

When I bought my 2015 Wildcat, I asked the salesman "Where are the A/C units? Why can't I see the intake grates?" He pointed out these non-RV-looking return grates. Two months later I had the presence of mind to wonder "do these A/C units have filters?" The answer: sort of.

Yep, that's what they look like. I took one down reached my hand into the duct and I came up empty. I will put my cell phone in the duct and take a picture maybe the filter is far up or was never installed.

I have the same rig as you I believe. I have not checked mine yet but, I will have to use a step ladder to get to them they are in the high part of the ceiling.

I thought this was different. I just picked up our new Cardinal and on the PDI the tech told me that it designed without any filter at all. That just does not sound right. I will call FR when we get back from our 2 week check out run. It is one of the low profile quiet units.
