Help with finding old Thread / Discussion on AC vents

Hello All,

Been looking and searching in General Tech / Repair as well as Palomino threads for this.

A while back there was a thread about fixing the ducts coming from the AC units in a Sabre unit.

Basically it was chat and photos of how to connect the ducts properly to the roof vents to get increased air flow.
May have been a Turbs thread?

Anyone recall this, or know where it is?

Thanks

I did have a thread a few years ago and my issue was the plenum above the a/c unit was never sealed so air was allowed to roam freely up above.
after sealing the plenum I have at least two vents that lightly whistle with all the air flow.
We can't leave the bunk house door closed or ice will form on the kids!

Hey Turbs do you have pictures/thread of what you did?
My AC seems to output very little for a 15K unit and I would like to investigate before installing a second unit.

Did you need to remove celling panels?

Thanks for you input.

I wish I did.
This repair was made at the dealer under warranty.
To my knowledge the whole inner grill and trim ring was removed to reveal the issue.
They may have pulled the unit but I'm not aware that they did.

The second link that wmtire posted was one of the one's I was thinking of. Pretty sure mine will have those issues as well.

Turbs, it was probably someone elses thread then that you commented on.... This one was a DIY fix with photos for a similar problem to yours...
It was more recently active as well. 6 'ish months ago..
