A/C vents

Anyone have a remedy for the ducted vents not staying open with the A/C running?

I had the same problem with mine, two of the four would flip closed when the AC was on. I thought about replacing them with the same model, hoping the tolerances would be tighter, but who knows. I wanted to replace them entirely with these "Aireport 5840WH Diffusers" but I couldn't find the the correct size:


So instead I removed mine and put a small drop of Gorilla Glue on each of the four hinge points. Careful not to get glue on the outside ring so they can still rotate. Reinstalled and they definitely stay open now! In over a year of owning the trailer I've never wanted them closed anyway. Might still look for an alternative vent entirely...

I took ours out and modified the hinge a little to increase the friction so they don't close so easily. Did all of them.

I didn't want to glue them open permanently.

Have fun...I repaired 2 ducts that the foil was not completely sealing the outlet. Added some aluminum foil tape to the opening duct where it exits.
