Correct, it can draw in the inside air and cool it more and then exhaust the hot air out a large flexible tube that mounts in the window with a sliding width adjuster panel.

I was thinking for next year to buy a stand alone a/c unit to supplement my current a/c unit...The newer ones require only one duct, I am not sure how it works, and you don't have to dump the condensation water out, it somehow evaporates it out the exhaust. It just so happens I have a floor register that is open to a basement.....for what reason, I haven't found out, but I believe I can share that register for the exhaust.

The floor register you are talking about is a return air grill. When your furnace comes on, there are small outlets that blow hot air into the basement to keep the water tank and water lines from freezing. The air has to have a way to return, so you have flow. That is why you have the gill into the basement.

We have one of these http://www.amazon.com/Haier-CPN12XC9-12K-Portable-Conditioner/dp/B0027Z3NCI/ref=pd_sim_sbs_hg_5 in our bedroom and it works great. Sometimes our swamp coolers just don't Get-Er-Dun and we use this. It seems the Dog House space in your "C" class would be a perfect place to put one of these things. Just storage while traveling is a problem, there kinda big.

thanks for the info.......since we don't take the rv out in the winter....and since we use a small electric heater when we want to take the chill out of the coac, and since we live in south florida I guess I can use that as exhaust....it's only to supplement my a/c needs.
