Mini split in 40 foot bus

Hi all

Just bought my 40-foot bus and planning the layout and solar/battery setup.

Definitely going the mini split. Wondering if anyone out there has mini split and what BTU did you go with and 1 or 2 head units.

Thanks

Mark

I'd really like to know how this all turns out! In particular, where you'll mount the condenser and compressor and what heat pump you wind up using are very interesting.

Mounting the units will be the major problem and running the lines as well. I would definitely go with two zones as a minimum and at least 36,000 to 40,000 BTUH. This will need to be 120 VAC power supply.

Not going to find a 36k btu in 120volt, here is my install: I would run 2-12k 120 volt units. They seem to be the lest expensive. I run mine on 1 2000 watt honda genny.

Seems like a good idea (at least you have some redundancy if one goes out)
