OK... this is not a big problem, but it's annoying and I'm sure someone has a fix. The ceiling vents for the AC/heat pump won't stay open. We've had to stuff pieces of paper between the slats to keep them from closing. Is there a more elegant, clever, or less tacky looking way of keeping the vent open?

Here is a previous thread on a forum member who replaced his ceiling air vent covers. Pretty straight forward exchange.Replacement duct vent for improved air mixing
Here is a website where they can be purchased at a reasonable price.http://dwincorp.com/product_info.php?cPath=55&products_...973148704397 4fb965fe
We found ours at a local RV dealer/parts dept.

I remember a previous thread where someone took down the vents and installed very small o-rings on the rotating part. It was very effective.

I just did a quick search under "ceiling vents" and it popped up. Third one down dated 7/27/07. Has great photos of the fix.

Gary,

Great solution! I was lazier than you, though. I cut a small plumbing washer and wedged it in and around the pivot point... not as neat, but inconspicuous and functional. We also had a problem with one of the dash AC vents... it wouldn't stay in place. Used your solution to fix that, too! Thanks!
