I was not aware that any manufacturer installed AC units in the basement.

Sure sounds (to me) like a better solution.

Winnebago, Itasca, National, Alfa Leisure, Bus Conversions and probably a few more. The competition's only claim to superiority is the lost storage space. Though it's not really very big. But it sure works better and is quieter!

Does anybody know what brand AC units are installed in the basement?
If I ever lose a roof unit, I'm gonna get really low.

Winnebago uses Coleman/Trane. Not sure about the rest.

You'll have a few considerations with a change over. The unit will need to be vented (a door modification) and ducted to the ceiling (a pass-thru vent from basement to ceiling) or fed into the heater's plenum (and a mod there). The ducting can be cleverly hidden in cabinets or false walls/boxes, but slides will need to be avoided. That will limit the location

Bob ~

don't have one, but did a engine search for basement mounted AC units for RV's and found this one:

http://www.advrv.com/ac.htm
(scroll about 2/3 down the page)

this page on the Alfa's site also mentions it:
http://www.alfaleisure.com/mh/gold/g...sement_ac.html
(maybe shoot them an email to see what the manf. is)

and found this site to contain several owners manuals for various appliances:
http://bryantrv.com/docs.html

Hope that helps your basement AC search! ;-)

Yes Sir, it sure does.

Not a lot more money and reduces the roof load by 100 lbs. A lot of other benefits as well.

Thanks.
