Air Circulation Question

Since we purchased our 334 in 2013, been having air circulation problems and temperature differential throughout the T.T. Our unit has front bedroom, during hot weather, can't get the temp to stay consistent. The rear of the unit is the bunkhouse and you could hang meat in there it gets so cold. Looked into ceiling fans but not enough ceiling height. Tried alternating ceiling vents, that did nothing. Anyone have ideas to how we can move the air around the coach other than a portable fan?

Thanks!

Running the fan constantly may help. We had the same problem on our last TT, thermostat swing was too much. I replaced the one on this unit with a digital one and it keeps the temp much more comfortable.

I'm looking at adding this, it can be run with the vent closed as ceiling fan.

I have an idea, but not a clue of how to do it: Run the furnace fan.

Recently we took our grandson camping for a night. It was tough getting the trailer cooled down for sleeping after sitting all day in the AZ sun. I thought if I could run just the furnace fan, it might help.

If your colder area is near the furnace intake, it might help to even out your temps.

I replaced our bathroom fan with one of these. It works great and moves a lot of air.

I had the same problem. I have one ac unit (15,000btu) and it needs a little help. Ran a fan last weekend in it and it seemed to help a little. Moving air is cooler to the feel than stale/stationary air.

Have you tried portable oscillating fans? We use them and they have solved our problems.

Thanks for the informative feedback. Actually the stock analog thermostat is considerably off and being replaced with a digital. We are adding an oscillating fan as well.

Is your unit ducted or non ducted? If ducted are all the vent operating? If so, you can close vents in the cooler area, open vents in warmer areas to balance the flow. I would also suggest leaving the fan on run to circulate the air all the time. If non ducted then I would think a portable fan you could move air to where you need it, would be easiest.


Good Luck.
