air condtioner 2007 34rl 5th wfeel

Basic info that I don't have. The little filter above the grill mounted in the ceiling over the recliners. Is that the only air filter to clean?
There are two 6" grills for air in the bedroom .and 2 more in the main part of the RV. Are these the only ducts for the air.They seem to have very little air flow
Going back to the grill above the recliners in the back of the RV
I can adjust the air from full on to full off.Do I shut air hear to get more air to the front or should this stay open all the time.
Obviously I don't know much so any info you have will be new to me.

That is the one and only filter for the AC system. The heater system has *NO* filters.

Yup what you see is what you got. The flow is dependent on the position of the "dump" valve on the AC unit. When the dump valve is closed all the AC output is directed through the vents. You can remove them and check that everything is open and no blockages exist.

The grill on the AC unit is referred to as the "dump" valve. It can "dump" all of the AC output straight down to the recliner area to enable a quick cool down of that area. When fully closed, all the output goes through the ducts and this is how you cool the front area. You can position the grill in between full open and fully closed to achieve some balance in air flow and cooling. Depending on your location and the outside heat, one AC may not be sufficient.

Ours works exactly like Carl described and so far one unit has been quite adequate and comfortable. We had one evening this week that it stayed warm until we brought in our large fan from outside to get more air circulating, but that day the heat index was 110.

Thanks for the info. It all seemed too simple but it is very nice to get confirmation that I am using syetem properly
