Question Ac opening question

Hi everyone, hope everybody is enjoying there Summer. And yes I know
its not quite official. Still here in Wa. state and Spring hasn't showed up much yet. LOL

I have a question, I have a 1987 Gulfstream Sunvista. I thought I read somewhere that the opening in the roof for the rooftop AC is the same
as for a vent fan like Maxair.

My rear AC works great, my front not so much. The rear is wired to the
Genset only and we plan on boondock this winter.

Figure if I have to cool it down I can run genny for a short time and cool
down living space and my solar should be able to run a roof vent for short
time to pull the warm air out of bed area.

as always thanks in advance.

Why not move the good AC from the back to the front, and put the vent in back. Since you do most of your living in the living room in the late afternoon and evening, seems it would be more comfortable that way. And easier to cool the bedroom later at night.

When other people have done this swap of ACs, they are always encouraged to replace the roof seal.
