On the way home from Dove Springs, I picked
up a good quality 12v (2 speed) metal fan at
a truck stop and installed it under the TV
cabinet.

on my last WW 5'r, i replaced the ceiling vent in the bedroom with another 13.5 AC. It ran off its own off/on switch, not the hallway thermostat.
You considering anything like that? Its prewired, i'm sure, and the Onan 5500 is robust enough.
I was looking at a Slimline 15K AC. It's about half the height of the OEM 13.5
You of course have to be anticipating that your sister is going to make you do all these things to her and King's reg ??

Geeezzz...how he's stopin' at truck stops like they're flea markets!!

Sandy...give 56 some downers, or sumpthin!! (I think we got some doggy-downers left over- want me to ship 'em Fedex for 'ya?).

Actually, that's a pretty good idea, soooooo...hope Flying J has 'em in stock on my next visit (Howie...look what you've done!).

And the extra AC..Mike- we're gonna have one put in the bedroom. We didn't want the factory to do it because it would've held up the order, but after having two of 'em, and even though the rood is R-19, I think we'll still need one. That Slimline seems to be the hot hookup...

56 has had too much time on his hands...quick! Someone get that man a beer (keg)!

i think that the ticket really wood be in insulate these beasts so that the one original AC would do a little better then just bring it down 20 degrees from whatever it is outside.
but if that takes double pane windows, better insulation, better weather stripping;
or maybe just some kind of good reflective covering on the windows and the insulation,
i still just tossed in another 13.5 last time and i would lie right underneath it.
i can take the heat, but Cordie's engine turns off at around 90-95 degrees. shoot, i put on short pants when it gets to 90

Actually, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised...R-19 on the roof (old was R-7), and unless you try to park in he!! (sorta like Glamis right now), I think it'll be OK.

Got to hear the stories...but don't include the wives...their thermos are all screwed up (learned that Day 'One').

Kicked on the AC for the first time today, 95 inside trailer. In 2 hours it was down to 82 and I finally shut it off at 78. When inside, you can't even hear the basement air running. Just cool air from the vents. I know the history of basement air, some bad, some good. Keeping fingers crossed, so far so good.

.....have you guys tried a reflective mylar sheet on the roof OR! even a few sheets of polyisocynate foam board with the shinny foil side up layed over 2X2's held in place with a few concrete blocks or pieces of fire wood?...to reflect and insulate the roof cheaply.....geofkaye

All you lucky guys who live in Southern California
have a greater need for dual A/C units. We rarely have used our A/C on our trips and we try to avoid the real hot locations.

Yup, the new WW'ers are all pre-wired for the additonal A/C. If I did add another, I agree
with you would probably go with the Slimline

I think we'll be OK with the R-19 that WW's got...but an additional layer- if you're gonna be stationary, is a good idea.

I'd definately like to add another A/C. After a trip to Glamis last September, it's a must have! PPL Motorhomes is having a sale on A/C units for anyone that's interested....

Diirk:

Thanks for the link...I've never priced any units out, so I'm not quite sure just what combination of the different parts I would need to price a complete unit (top, bottom, etc?)- any ideas?

Sean
