Can you provide a rough cost on the parts you ordered?

Why forest river didn't install this from the beginning is beyond me

Upgrade completed.
Ordered parts from ppl moterhomes, cost $144 - ceiling assembly and thermostat kit
Parts from home depot, $50 - thermostat wire, low volt wire, HVAC tape
Still need to patch screw holes from old ceiling assembly. Took out rv for a long weekend at Disney World @ Orlando. Worked great.
Old ducting was all supplied by 15,000 btu unit in main room. I blocked off the ducting going to the bunk room, bathroom, and bedroom. This duct is now supplied by the 13,500 btu unit in the bedroom.

Oh yea, just in case anyone was wondering, this upgrade took me alone about 14 hours. I took my time. I only had one issue when I was running the new thermostat wire. Took me a little longer to get new wire threw holes in wall at ceiling cap plate.

I can't get the a/c to come from the roof vents

I think that FR cuts the AC duct into the foam insulation assuming ceiling vents. If so, you probably have a blockage at the source stopping all air to the rest.

I found my unit was doing this as well. I took of the cover inside the unit and found the fins were frozen over which block air in to the unit. I turned off the cooling portion, turned the fan on high and it quickly melted the ice. Air flow returned and the ac returned to normal operation. Now I need to determine the cause of the freeze up.

Your thermostat controller should have a freeze up probe pushed into the fins. It may have fallen out going down the road. Its just a wire with a small sensor on the end. Push it back between the fins CAREFULLY and CAREFULLY bend the fin back onto the probe to hold it in CAREFULLY.

The probe sensor detects the freeze up and turns the compressor off to thaw it out. Same thing you did manually.
