Its done, I ordered a new Durotherm 13,500 HE for the Warrior, should be in next week. Going to take it in when I get back and get the puppy installed. Less work that way! Besides, I don't like heights. This should make the Warrior good for 3 of the 4 seasons and I don't want to be anywhere camping that has that 4th season anyway. You know, the one called winter.

While I was at it I ordered a new gearbox for the Terry too, have to put that in myself but thats a piece of cake. I hope!

Now, if I could just decide on a new Ham radio and antenna's, I'd be good to go.

Tom,

I quess that new AC is going into the bedroom area?

What is interesting is that for all the RV's we have owned, I've probably run all the AC's a total of 10 hours

Maybe it's because we live in Northern California and only camp where the temps are moderate......

The main reason is for when we get out in 100 plus heat, the single unit wouldn't keep it cool. Last year we were in 108 temps for three days and like to have melted. This year we are going to Branson for the rally and it is bound to be hot, then heading to New Mexico after that, not going to take a chance this year. Besides, I always need to carry 1/2 tank of water just to add pin weight so the trailer will tow better, this way the extra 100 lbs on the pin may take care of that.

You dont have to look outside to tell that summer in on the horizon. The top two posts today were about air conditioning.

Yep, I can. 745 out the door, shipping and tax included for a 13,500 HE Durotherm that pulls just 9.? amps, don't remember the exact amount. Installation went good, 200 bucks for 2 1/2 hrs worth of labor. WW had the wires in the ceiling but didn't provide a hole to get them to the vent, had to drill one. course they had to remove my max air cover and the vent cover, then the wire wasn't wired in at the breaker box so that had to be taken apart and wired up.

But hey, its in and works like a champ. 945 said and done. I may have to do some playing with what breaker to use and stuff like that since the AC breaker is only 20 amps, we'll just have to play and see.

This was all done by a local dealer here in Tulsa. They beat or equaled anything I could find on the net and I had already decided to have someone install it anyway so it worked out good.
