Only folks who buy their Berkshire new get the added extra of snow.

We found this to be a great solution to the problem.
Amazon.com - Stanley 655704 Multi Purpose Pivoting Utility Fan - Floor Fans

Fits right under the end of the bed in our 390RB out of the walking path.

First it seems that the bedroom was typically a little cooler than the living area. This little fan circulates that cooler air from the bedroom through the living area.
And it also creates a breeze you can feel in the living area.
We were surprised just how much air it moves.
We can leave both air dumps closed to keep the noise down.
It was an amazing and immediate difference we could feel.

The ceiling material in your roof is Styrofoam. Mostly there for insulation but adds strength too. They make the air ducts to your vents by cutting grooves or open tunnels in that Styrofoam then bond on the ceiling material you see. That leaves a lot of loose pieces of Styrofoam. Styrofoam material creates a lot of static electricity which holds the little pieces of Styrofoam in place. Eventually it looses charge and some of it breaks free from it's glue base and comes floating out with the air.

I think that was a shot at Boohoo. We give him a hard time anytime we can.
The snow comes with most all the "ducted" RV's. It stopped after a few weeks in mine.

Hmm, no one mentioned this to me. I assumed we'd have to live with the noise from the ac. Much more pleasant environment, And, no snow plus it seems to cool more efficiently.

LOL, thanks for the explanation. I'm doing calculations in my head while reading the "snow" posts as to what conditions could possibly be causing the snow (excess condensation at "x" temperature, etc.) I guess I'll be joining the rest of you in this experience since I now know how to engage my ducts.....

Mine only did it the first few times when it was new. I haven't seen any snow the last 10 times we've used it.

Windjammer here; love those vents, still get snow...... funny I thought something was wrong when seeing the snow..... guess I'll just enjoy it and not worry so much now.... thanks

Also had snow in our light fixtures, cleaned them out, little more in a couple of them, but less than when the trailer was new....

love these type post where I learn others are experiencing the same thing.....

For once in your life, be honest. Ms. Amy had to explain it to you and THEN show you how to slide the vent.
