Of course,since I have a 2015 27 FB, I wanted to see if I too had an ac issue in the front. Indeed, I do. I'm in the desert checking it out. I have read that some folks are going to JC for ac angioplasty. Are we to assume that there is a blockage or that the new vent covers are the solution?

The funny thing is that I put directional closing vents on my 2000 SOB many years ago.

In my case, I am assuming that there is a blockage as i have absolutely no air flow coming from the three vents forward of the air return on the street side.

Brian,

Thanks. I think that you're having the issue that I read about. Mine has some flow, significantly less on the curb side than street side. I am thinking that the adjustable vents will correct my issue. I am guessing you aren't looking at a 2000 mile one way trip to JC?

You are correct. JC is about an 800 mile trip for us. We are on our way to Maine, so Jackson Center is not that far out of the way. Due to the complete blockage in our system, it may require removal of the interior ceiling skin. That is the kind of thing that I would be more comfortable having the factory do.

Clearly a great option for you!

We have a guy whose father was a foreman on the line when Wally in LA. Today the son is the west coast guru. He is the main man for airstream when the dealers can't get things right!

Has anyone else discovered the front vents put out little air while bedroom vents blow heavily? I am wondering if a production issue has allowed the front ducting to be somehow blocked, forcing all the air from both A/C units to be diverted to the rear.

I think the "weak" vents are just further from the unit or the ductwork has more bends. The "stronger" vents are closer to the unit or have less bends. How many vents are between the weaker or stronger vents?

You could be right, M.Hony. However, in another thread Moosetags had their New Lucy's ducts repaired at JC earlier this week. They report that her streetside vents were not blowing. When JC removed the air conditioner from the roof and took a peek around, they found that some insulation had fallen down and obstructed things. JC repaired the issue and New Lucy's ductwork performance is said to be much improved.

Moosetags posted that he was having issues with no air. Was going to the mothership for some work and this was one issue. The techs found some insulation in the duc work blocking the vent to the front of the unit, his is a 25'. It was in his tread about their trip to Maine, but was cut short due to a family emergency back home in FL.

I am staying at the Sycamore RV Resort outside of Chicago for the week and it is 43 outside. I have been running both zones in heat-pump mode and they are putting out a good deal of heat, however zone 1 in the bunk and bath area is blowing very cold air. I guess lack of insulation or no insulation between duct work and roof. This is quite disappointing to have the ducted air and having it blow cold in the back half. I guess I'll order the adjustable vents so the back ones can be shut off. Better than blowing cold. I guess it is still quieter even if it really does not distribute the heat well. While I did not notice it when we were in Phoenix in early April I guess the same thing will happen in reverse when the roof gets hot. Cold in the middle warm in the back.

Sounds like the one heat pumps isn't pumping heat. Remember that heat pumps start to lose the battle at the 40 degree mark. And they will do a defrost cycle when the temps are between 30 and 42 degrees. Maybe it did the reverse for a period of time which is cold air. Page 10 in the Dometic Thermostat manual.
