Also reattached the flexible ducting from ac to exhaust vent. Guess there could have been a leak in one of those places. Still going to run it in the heat we're having. I have to pull it out 1 more time to install drip pan. That's why I posted the pic. Of that vent on the bottom of the ac. I don't want to block it if it supplies airflow for something. Thanks again for all your help. Darral too. I'll keep you posted. Gary
Gary, I am glad it is working. As we have said, it is usually about good airflow. Between amount of airflow and there being a leak, I would guess you had a leak based on the amount of difference you are seeing. Put your hand by the exhaust vent and start to get used to how much air is coming out and the temperature. If it changes, you will know something is up .

I have no idea what the vent is on the bottom. I just left it the way it was. I doubt based on size compared to the holes on top/bottom/sides that it is key for air flow.

I am leaving for camping in a more remote area so my internet availability will be questionable for the next week. Just FYI.
