Here is a simple fix if you are having trouble with you're A/C vents self closing from the fan pressure. If you remove the vents and add "O" rings to both ends of one of the center shafts this will add enough resistance to correct the problem. The "O" rings I used are 1/16" thick by 1/8" inside diameter by 1/4" outside diameter.

Gary,

Nice fix on those A/C vents. Ours don't self close but they are close to it, being fairly sloppy. I'll watch them some more and if they look like they're closing, I'll get some O rings and give it a try.

Thanks for sharing--
