For Those Impacted by the Roof Rafter Recall

After having the warranty work done to correct the sagging ceiling, I noticed the main AC was not performing well. Upon investigation, this is what I found:

Both air intakes were completely collapsed. As I have given up on letting others touch my camper, I will be pulling the AC and attempting to open this up on my own.

It's that crappy cheap foam stuff they use and it ain't worth nothing but it probably saved them a buck. I had to prop mine open also but only at the openings.

I just finished pulling the main AC. I placed all new tape and used a 5" piece of 1.5" PVC to prop each open and man what a difference!
