Wondering if the ducted AC can be used as a fan to circulate air without running the AC compressor?

There is a manual setting for the fan.

Where would the air intake be located? Where is the air that is being moved through the ducts originating from?

From the bottom of the AC unit, where the filter is.

Thanks for the posts, I was going to have the dealer install a Fan. Fan in the Bunk room, but a hole would have to be cut in the roof, I'm hoping the ducted AC fan will deliver some fresh air to the area. if the main room is cool enough with open windows.

Running the fan will recirculate the air that's in the trailer. It doesn't bring in fresh air from outside.

You may have to close all the other vents to get decent air flow to the bunks. A friend was having low air flow to one end of his 5er, we solved it by removing the vent and put a piece of plastic to increase the space between the upper insulation and the ceiling - 'ducted' doesn't always mean there is a tube-like duct that air moves through.
