    Question Thermostat settings for 2 ac units

    I was wondering what is the best way to set front and rear ac thermostats to get best results? I have a Reflection 303. Since the bedroom area is smaller, do you set that thermostat at a different temperature?
    Thanks Tom.

    Whatever works for you. Both units feed into the same ducting system, so there's a lot of "crossover." We run the bedroom AC at a lower temp during the day so the living room AC doesn't cycle so often while we're in there. At night, we turn off the bedroom AC for quiet and turn down the living room AC. On really hot afternoons, they may both be running at the same time. There's no right or wrong way to do it.

    What about the "vents" on the AC units themselves.....closed or open?

    If you have the dump vents on the trim panels open, you are not benefitting from the ducting system. Our dump vents aren't in the picture, anyway, since we have installed RV Air Flow systems in both ACs. We close the ducted bedroom vents to divert more air to the living area during the day. We open all vents at night.

    Google is your friend: https://rvairflow.com/?gclid=CjwKCAj...xoCOyIQAvD_BwE

    They're a bit pricey, but we've found the expense to be worth it.

    There are several YouTubes on the installation. It took me about 30 minutes for one and almost an hour for the other... the flanges and bolts on the second one weren't installed very square at the factory so I had to work to get things lined up.
