Vortex 2 Vent Insert

After finding out the hard way our new fifth wheel does not have a AC duct into the bathroom we are looking for a solution to the problem. The bath room was easily 90 degrees when the rest of the trailer was maybe 70 degrees. Has anybody used the Vortex 2 to help suck more cooler air from the living area?

I suggest you locate the main duct lines that run the length of the rig. Ideally there should be two, one on either side making an 'H' layout. In reality, CR frequently shortens the one that would run above the bathroom as there is too little space to accommodate the skylight, vent and duct. But anyway, for your plan the other duct should run street side, opposite the bathroom, so you might consider adding a vent into that duct to direct cool air thru the open bathroom door. It will help cool the bathroom until the door is closed.

CR installs the vents after the unit is finished. They use a hole saw to drill thru the ceiling panel and thru the bottom of the foam duct board. The edges are sealed with duct tape and then the two piece plastic vent is added.

This only helps if you keep the bathroom door open most of the time, but that would also be needed for most other solutions also.

how about a 'fan in the wall' that blows cool air from the cool part to the bathroon area?

It was a rainy few days at Algonquin Prov park...tarps kept us dry.
