It was not BAD before but it is amazing when the cold air goes into the trailer and not sucked back into the AC.
Add me to the list. This weekend, I worked on both A/Cs.
The living room one, there was basically no foil tape around the ductwork:
I taped that up; it's not pretty, but it's taped:
On the bedroom A/C, I saw a bunch of places where air could seep into the intake side. No pics, but gratuitous use of foil tape.
The last thing that I did was to tape off the rear A/C vents. It was open to the rear of the trailer and I made a tape "ramp" to funnel air out of it.
We held off as long as possible, but we finally added some Reflectix to living room windows. I hated to do it, but the living area would creep up to the mid-to-high 80s.
With the Reflectix and A/C fixes, we stayed "cool" at 76.
