Air Conditioning duct in a Discovery 37V

Cheers everyone. I have a 2000 Discovery 37V and I'm doing a major cleaning of the Air Conditioning system, all ducts and vents. What I have discovered (no pun intended) is the forward A/C feeding the two most forward vents is ducted past the vents to the front of the coach (cabinets ????). I would have expected either the duct to stop just after the vents, or there would be a block of styrofoam blocking beyond the vent if cooling was not being used further forward. I removed the bubble butt TV and all the attaching woodwork and fabricated and covered a new center section so there are three forward cabinets with the same trim ring and new dark smoke glass. That being said, while I had that section all apart I did not see any ducting coming into that area.

So is there a reason why the duct goes so far forward? Any issues with putting blocks of styrofoam to block the A/C from going to nowhere?

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Clay

Often, those 2 go forward and then meet (a crossover). Sometimes at the rear it's also like that. That's assuming they are cold air ducts.

Well working my way back to the rear I found out the same thing exists. Not sure why there would be such an area that does nothing would be fed cold air.
