Amazon. Search 'Tongue Jack Trailer Towing Organizer | Plastic Chain Saver

Yep, internet. I haven't had an original idea for over 25 years.

After reading a lot of this thread I checked each of my diffusers and was astonished at how much gap was between the duct and the diffuser housing. I spent yesterday using HVAC tape to seal between the housing and the duct.

Here is a pic of one housing and the gap. The white is the housing and that gap was big enough to put my whole hand in.



Here is a pic after sealing.





Had to cut pieces to overlap and made sure it was long enough to cover gap and have enough to seal properly. Turned the fan on afterwards and was very happy with the improved airflow. Next step is to block off the duct past the last diffuser. It goes for FEET past the last one on each end.

If you run your AC a large percentage of the day for extended stays (more than a day or two) and you are in an environment with high humidity, be sure to peel that back and check it for trapped moisture. Ours was sealed just like that and we kept hearing a tapping noise at night. Turned out that humidity with no where to go was trapped up there in the ceiling and condensing on the duct work and then dripping down onto the ceiling panels and pooling in the ceiling. It was actually starting to rot the wood backing on the ceiling panels. Not good. I actually checked with a local independent RV technician and he confirmed that he does not advise people seal that gap due to condensation issues. We live in South Louisiana so our humidity is oppressively god awful, so your area may not be bad enough to exhibit these issues but for anyone thinking of doing the same, be careful to check back! We had to remove all of the metal tape from the vents in our unit and everything dried up properly.
