How do owners like the air conditioning? Specifically, the intake on one side of the coach and the cold air coming out of the other? Also, is it a "problem" that the bathroom is on the intake side? At least on the Allegro REDs I looked at. I like the 37PA. Seems like it'd be better if the A/C blew IN to the bathroom not from.

In my 2016 37PA, the new system works just fine however not having to cold air discharge on the A/C is a slight problem in the bathroom on a hot day. I just aimed the cold air vent in the hallway to blow over the large opening at the top of the door. Just as a side note, my rear A/C unit was so loud when it came on that it woke me up every time it came on. Long story short the compressor sits right up against the A/C unit base, and vibration what was I was hearing. A rolled up surgical glove stuffed between compressor and base solved the problem.

Inside the coach, the system works great. Heat or cool is spread very evenly and it works well. The bathroom vent isn't really an issue but if you are unhappy with it, close it off.

The Airexcell (Coleman) Mach 8 airconditioner units (used by a bunch of different manufacturers) have been a bit of a problem recently with broken condensor fans but Airexcell claims they have it fixed now.

I am not sure why you call this a new ac system as I have a 2007 and mine is set up the way you describe.

I've never seen an AirXcel (RVP) with a broken fan but maybe it happens. In my 6 years in the RV service industry, the RVP's are the most durable. The colemans are a close second and the Dumbmetics are way at the bottom. They even recently cut their warranty from 2 years to 1 year. We're a Forest River TT dealer and they all have Dometics. We're a small shop but we replace 3-4 a week.

I wouldn't close off the bathroom intake. It not only draws hot air out, it also draws the cold air through the room, just like the out take (outside air) fan over the kitchen that pulls hot air out. you can feel the breeze pick up.

We just leave the door ajar when not using the bathroom.
