This is such a widespread problem we have a ''sticky'' thread on the subject.

I'll take a look this weekend. I don't recall any visible screws on the ceiling vent panel so I assumed it just popped off.

Even though my TT doesn't move, I assume vibration from the unit can loosen these up as well as road travel.

I believe that for most of us who have the Coleman units with the "Chill Grille" (or whatever it's called) there are 5 screws that hold that inside grill on. First you remove the cover for the air "filter", then you have access to all screws to remove that cover.

Whatever system you have, you will want to remove whatever access panel or inside unit you have to gain access to the outside unit from the inside.

ETA: I doubt you'll need to do this regularly if your unit is on a seasonal site. And now that I'm trying to visualize it, it might be 7 screws ...

Good grief - something else I'd have never thought to worry about )

I seem to recall someone a while back did in fact add ny-lock nuts to theirs. Seems like a good idea to me, as does the lock-tite.

I just check mine once or twice a year, and have only had to adjust twice in 3 years. So, I'm prone to forget that I need to pick up locking nuts.
