2015 ducted vents fall from ceiling

I have a 2015 FC FB, has anyone had a problem with the adjustable ceiling vents falling from the ceiling? It seems to occur from expansion and contraction of the vent area.
Thanks

So far no problem here. Some are looser than others, but none can be easily removed; removal takes some force. Joe

Ducted vents popping from ceiling

Thanks for the response, the vents seem to fall when the thermostat is set to auto and because of changes in outside temperature, the unit alternates between a/c and then later in the day heat pump.

We just purchased a 25FB international and are returning from a 4k trip through the Atlantic Maritime provinces. I've given up keeping them on the ceiling.

I called my dealer and was told the early units had a problem but more recent builds (manufactured in spring '15 and later have a "newer" design. Anyway, my trailer was made in November of '14... New vents are being sent to me. I hope this corrects an otherwise flawless trailer.

Sounds like a warranty issue.

we just did 3K miles and didn't have any fall. 2015 Serenity.

I too heard from my dealer that there was an issue and there was a re-design. My Classic (April delivery) did not have the adjustable vents as they were in transition. Installed the adjustable vents 8 weeks ago and no issues even on bumpy dirt roads in the mountains.

I haven't had any fall yet but I do have a very annoying 'rattle' coming from the return air area in the galley. Had it at the dealer a few weeks ago and they couldn't fix it. Referred me to Airstream. The rattle is so loud that it almost defeats the intended quietness of the duct air. Rear AC has no problems. Anyone else with this type of rattle?

I like the ducted air concept, love the style (when the vents are in the ceiling) but the system (a/c or heat strip) is anything but whisper quiet.

Mine has the directional air vents - again, it's a 2015 25FB Int'l. Built in November of '14. Prior to purchasing, I walked into a 25FB FC and noticed it had non-directional vents.

Now I'm curious; Which is the "new / improved".

Anyone know what the difference is (in the vent design)?

My Serenity, built in May 2014 has the first edition of non- adjustable vents, and they are very difficult to remove, certainly do not fall out.

In the bedroom, in rear, I have had to install deflectors over the bed to avoid drafts. I may purchase a couple of the adjustable units to eliminate this problem.

On some earlier units insulation was found in the ducts. If one removes the screen cover, sticks your smart phone up into the duct and takes a photo, you can see what might be blocking a duct, or possibly something loose which is rattling.
