Without starting a new thread, can you give a brief description of how it will work in the rv? Like, electric /gas? Produces x amount of heating/cooling btu? Cost? Instalation?
Well, Bruce Pflieger and I are working on this together or more accurately in concert with each other on our respective coaches.
I'm planning on an LG system with the Art Deco unit in the main cabin and a standard wall unit in the rear, which will replace both of our existing rooftop AC/Heat-pump noisemakers.
The ArtDeco unit for the front (12K) is basically a picture frame that will hang on the refrigerator wall and connections will come through the basement to the condenser which will be in one of the lower bays, in our case the battery bay as we've relocated the house batteries and have the space. The rear unit will be a standard wall mount (9K) on the rear wall and require cabinet modification over the bed to accommodate.
The refrigeration lines will be below and the electrical requirements are already in place with our upgrade last summer.
That's the high level, we're still working out the finer details but hope to have this installation done by the end of the year.
Total cost of the unit and installation is expected to be in the $3,500 - 4,500 range
