    GrandDeal3 I don't have a picture of it installed, but I can tell you that when you pull the filter on the unit, you will see a piece of white foam (looks like a white Styrofoam cup).

    I need to go in the unit this evening and will try to get a pic of the installed one, and the front one so you can see the difference. I would say since the dumps are not working, its probably installed.

      If the dump doesn't work and you have a Coleman (Airxcel) a/c, then there's a Airflow installed.

      The factory installation won't look significantly different (if at all) from my self-install. Lots of pics, and the linked video shows good views, too.

          My 2021 397TH (production date June 2020) did not come with them either on any of the 3 Coleman units. :(

            GD started installing the Airflows in Momentums starting with a VIN higher than yours (your VIN is much earlier than when they started adding the Airflow module). I just peaked at your VIN in your profile. I'm not sure I have permission to post the exact VIN when GD started, so you'll have to take my word for it or call GD Customer Service for confirmation.

            This is not unusual situation--there are many updates to later 2019 315RLTS' that I don't have in my "2019" (which is actually a late 2018).

              I don't have the RV Air Flow system installed on my Mach 10 and Mach 15 air conditioners. Obviously GD thinks it's worth installing them on some models of their RV's. Are they really worth the $170 a piece for the upgrade or is it just something that's nice to have. Like it would be nice to have Max Air covers but I don't have those either. Maybe more important for those people that are in the South and Southwest and less important for those of us in the Northeast?

                Seal up all the gaps in the ducts and you'll probably be good, Rob. Look at my install thread and you'll see what I mean, or better yet Chad's video (Changing Lanes) where he talks about AC maintenance.

                I lived north of Utica for many years, so well familiar with the weather in your neck of the woods. Come to Florida (or Texas) in the summer and you'll understand how ANY gain in cooling is a bonus well worth the $$.

                Arizona is another story...nothing you can do for hot-as-the-sun temperatures where TucsonJim lives.

                  We spent last winter in Florida and although it wasn't like summer type heat, we had days in the high 80's so I fully understand. I did take the covers off my AC units and they are sealed up good with foil tape. No gaps that I could see and the fiber partitions were secure which surprised me. I'll leave things as they are until we go South again. Thanks for the reply!

                    As promised. Pulled the street side filter and took both pictures from about the same angle.

                    With Airflow: Note cup looking texture.

                    No Airflow: Note shiny plastic with screws. That's the diverter for the dumps.
