I been up on the roof several times, but didn't take the cover off.........I imagined it has a wooden frame around the hole and then the unit attaches to the frame with bolts. (No long thru bolt in roof)

BTW, this unit puts out a noticeable increase in volume of air at the vents over the older Colemans. We've only had to use it once (my bride gets hot at about 85*) and it worked very nice. I tried to get Jack to send me some technical info on this unit, but so far no luck. He was going to check with Curtis.

Again thanks buddy!
I keep meaning to ask Larry Hicks about this. He's the supervisor where the roofs get installed. Just haven't had opportunity yet, I have been up there to help him out sometimes and have seen the wooden frames in the roof where the AC attaches, but just want to get more info from him, for you. I hear you about the wife getting hot at low temp.s!! Mine freaks out in the winter if the heater is above 68. Have to wear a sweatshirt all the time! In the summer. Forget about it, the AC is going and there are fans blowing on us at night. Bundle is the key word!

I talked to Larry about this he besides screwing in from the sides, he screws in from the bottom through the chill grill.

He also said on the newer models he screws in from the top and it goes into a plate below and they suction up against eachother, it was not the most in depth of convesations but I said someone asked and I wanted to know. That's what we covered. Do you want something more complete? I can ask him this too? I can answer questions anybody has and will ask the appropriate supervisor if need be. Just here to help where I can!

Thanks Joe. Would a couple of pix be asking too much? You know pix say a thousand words....it's not real important as it works good....I'm just always curious how things work and in this case....how this new AC mounts up to the roof......part of the ol' engineering in me that just won't go away! rockin'
