Getting air to rear

Is there a trick on getting air to the rear of my 74 31'. We have great air in the front half cold and crisp even with the 100 outside. I just can't seem to get much past the center bath.

The following comment is to do with the rear bath models.

If you are talking about the AC output, the only thing that will help the mid area (beds) is to carefully adjust the rear air output louvres on the AC unit so that there is a breeze that goes over the door frame (bulkhead) and will therefore fall into the sleeping area.

The louvres can be swivelled up and down on the original Armstrong AC unit, and once carefully adjusted, the AC can cool the sleeping area quite effectively.

The same would be true in a mid-bath unit, but it would only cool the hallway outside the bathroom area.

If you have a rear bed model, then all I can suggest is a small fan to help push the cool air to the back sleeping area.

If it's to be, it's up to me.

Yes, agreed. We close the front air louvers at night and that helps all the air go to the back. Also like the previous poster, a small fan helps immensely. Then reopen the front in the morning. If it in really hot out, we will close off the BR door until evening, keeping all the cool in the front.

Close the front louvers and get a FanTastic Vent Endless Breeze Fan to move the air (or another small box fan) The Endless Breeze is 12 volt which means it comes in handy boondocking too.
