Anyone add a bathroom A/C vent?

Presently camping at the Summerland Key (20 miles from Key West) KOA. Low 90s outside, low 70s inside. The Dometic A/C is doning a wonderful job of keeping our TT cool, and the humidity low.

The only issue is the bathroom is warm. No A/C vent, and even though the TT is fairly well insulated, it gets too warm.

I noticed the ducts don't stop at the kitchen. Tapping the ceiling in the bathroom leads me to believe the ducts continue into there as well. I'll sneak a tape measure into an existing vent to verify this.

Looks like it's a simple matter of making some measurements, cutting a hole, and adding a vent. One should do for such a small space.

Anyone do this yet? If so, where'd you get the vent? I'm thinking I can find one at Camping World.

Seven hour drive home in the morning. Going the KW to watch the sunset later. Roasted, toasted, exhausted!

Good question about where to get a vent. Maybe out of a wrecked trailer or car? The main issue would be what you would have to do to mount it.

Robert,

Look on THIS page. Scroll down to Outlet Vent for Ducted Air Conditioning. Part # 61452. This should be the matching vent for your TT.

I've been contemplating adding one in the bathroom of my TT also. Should be a fairly easy install with a small router or Dremel tool.

Hey Mike - I like your answer a lot better than the one I posted. I added the link to my resources file. Thanks.

Interesting idea... I'm on the Bay of Fundy where A/C is rarely needed but I find the Fan-tastic Fan has sufficient airflow at '2' to pull the air conditioned air from the interior into the bathroom, and cools it very quickly.
