Adding Third Roof AC - Anyone Try It?
After spending an extended weekend in 100F heat, I’m ready to increase the AC capacity. I used a 13k BTU dual-tube portable AC unit this time and that kept temps fine, especially in the main cabin where it tends to get warm. But that solution is bulky and the condensation has to be emptied regularly. I’d like to add a third Penguin II to the roof. I know the 8kw QD8000 can handle the load, and I’m reducing the overall demand by replacing the 30A electric cooktop with an 8.5A induction cooktop.
So…rather than figure this out from scratch, thought I’d see if anyone had attempted this and how they did it. A unit would take 120AC for a stand-alone, and a zone temp sensor plus a CAN bus line if I want to integrate it. Looking for advice here. And before anyone offers suggestions on making the two existing Penguin IIs ‘work better’ they are both new and working to spec. Looking specifically for info on adding an additional roof AC to a two-unit Travel Supreme motorhome (mine is a 2006 ME), preferably in the front or middle.
Thanks in advance for the assist.
