The return air grills in my coach have a visible foam filter , the is cleaned by removing the grill from the ceiling , pressing the two center clips on the pivot pin and separating the grill from the frame . Wash/dry the foams and replace .

NOW a PO may have thrown the foam pieces away , in that case the foam is available and you can cut to fit.

I'll look for the exact name of the foam .

EDIT: About the best I can do for a product name is " Filter foam sheets " I believe mine are 1/8 or 3/16 thick and non carbon ; as the carbon makes the foam non-washable.

I have multiple sets of filters. Swap a clean set in wash the old set and dry. No down time while waiting for them to dry.

If yours is without filters, you may need to clean the evaporator.

Look up RVAIR.com. They have MERV6 rated filters. They work really well. They remove dust and dirt and also remove odors.

We have the same round filters, eight in our last coach and fourteen in this one. We have used these since they were first developed, and recommend them to anyone.

The filters are available from Amazon, some Walmart stores, soon from CW and other RV retailers.

Disclaimer: I don't work for the company, but I did assist (a little) in developing the line.

Get them, use them, love them.

JMHO

Some of the reviews on the RVAir filters state that air flow is really restricted. Is there any flow comparisons on them?

I don't know who did those studies, but there is no noticeable restriction that we can find.

We have been using ours for about five years (change yearly, more often for full timers), and find no problems at all.

Seriously, check them out.

Had the same coach, purchased new. It looks like someone removed your filters from the ceiling intake vents. I would clean the evaporators and install new filters.
