[QUOTE=VinceAndPam;62988]I had a 2016 Axis that had the same Coleman/Mach AC unit as our new Hurricane only it was a 15k unit as opposed to two 13.5k units we have now. The way the duct work is molded into the ceiling and the sliding vents on the ends of the ceiling assembly don't allow enough air flow. If you take the ceiling assembly off, the AC unit will almost knock you down with the amount of air it moves with the assembly removed. On a hot day, the AC just can't seem to move enough air to keep the unit cool, but if you remove the ceiling assembly, it will practically freeze you out. So my mod was to install this rotating register that you can open and close as needed. $14.71 on Amazon. These help the AC move a lot more air as it installed right where the fan is producing the most downward force.

Just search Amazon for JR Products ACG25DPW-A Polar White Adjustable Ceiling Vent.

What a great idea! Do you remember how big a hole you had to make in the assembly? Is it a regular circle saw size? Thanks for sharing.

I don't remember the exact hole size, something like 4.5 inches. But I just traced the vent out and drilled a 3/8" pilot hole and cut the rest out with a jig saw. Took about 5 minutes per cover to get it done.

Jerry,
Congratulations!!!!! I know what it takes to earn a piece of jewelry like that. I retired almost a year ago after 32. Took me a few months to get used to it. I don't miss the circus but I miss the clowns. Good luck on your surgery. I few friends of mine have gone through that after job related crashes.

Feels pretty good doesn't it ? I left in 2012 after 33 years.
You will miss some of it but in reality the job has changed , it's better to be where you are now.
Enjoy yourself and go put some miles on that motor home !

Right Kev,
Lots of ups and downs with the job but getting the job was the best decision i ever made. Overall it was a lot of fun. My partners and i would always say we cant believe they pay us to do what we do
