We had neighbors with only a front living room air, unit wired for a 2nd in bedroom. They constantly complained about just the 1 not cooling enough. Ordered a 2nd to be installed in bedroom after having it in to the rv place and check 2 or 3 times and always returned saying - working fine. Son installed 2nd A/C and decided to clean and check front one. Baffles in vent were closing off the vent most of the way and the cooled air was barely coming thru. He readjusted the baffles and guess what ---- 2nd A/C not even needed now .

Thanks for all the comments, for some reason I got no email notifications, I thought I set it up for instant email notifications, but I bet it went to spam.

I'll check my ducting myself to start with as some have said, it seems reasonable to stay with.

If that looks good, I'll start with the serial tests described here.

It seems like what I'm describing isn't normal, so I'll keep digging until I can root cause it.

Im new to trailers but not new to construction. Can you take a picture of your front AC unit? Im curious if the only outlet is the ducts?

I would add extra outlets to your existing ducting.

Or more expensive option is install a different style AC unit. A unit that has more free flowing airflow. For example the unit in your garage.

I think trailer companies dont want to blast cold air straight down onto your bed. So front bedrooms get ac units like you have now.
