Cold air running down my neck!

The a/c in my Premier Bullet has a few air vents but the main vent, directly below the roof unit, cools the majority of the camper. The problem is the air blows straight down in front of the sink area. While I am prepping food it is freezing the back of my neck! Is their any modification I can do that would divert the air to blow out horizontally? I can invision some sort of plexiglas snap-on thing but I am not coming up with any ideas to make it happen. It look similar to this:



Any ideas?

Reach up and slide the vent closed... if you have ducted A/C then that vent is really intended as a rapid cool feature.. most of the time mine is closed..

Wow...I will have to go out to the trailer and check it out. I am going to feel pretty stupid if it has a lever to close it off. Have to bundle up this morning before going out...it is bleepin' cold! And one more cup of coffee

Just to follow-up: I did find a sliding switch that closed off the main vent. Will have to wait till this summer to see if the air coming from the other vents is adequate when it is closed off. More than likely I will just close it when I have to stand directly under it. Thanks for the heads-up.

Which model unit do you have?

We have 29rkpr. When we first stop in summer I'll close off bedroom and open that vent to cool it down. After that we run off the ducts.

I think most of us use those vents open as a cold air dump right into the rig for quick cooling in that area. Those vents also can be adjusted (totally closed) to force the maximum cold air into the duct system if installed. Adjustments in between proportion cold air forced through the ducts and that forced straight down

Right on, we keep ours closed all the time as you will find with it closed the AC is a bit quieter. The amount of air out of the rest of the vents will increase, and you can direct them to safe places.
