home depot has a unit called gree 27 SEER >>> http://www.homedepot.com/p/GREE-Ultra-E ... ifications

I'm buying that to cool the bus. only 350 watts.
Looking at the specs it says 5.7 amps at 230 VAC. How do you get 350 watts? 5.7A x 230V = 1311 Watts. This is most likely running amps too and the LRA (Locked Rotor Amps) would be much higher. sometimes 3 to 4 times as much.

Re: Model 05 Silver Eagle

The color looks great with your interior We like the idea of having the metal on the ceiling because it's easy to keep clean, allows for the use of magnets for our lamp shades, ceiling drapery, etc. and it's strong/reinforces the roof integrity and provides a strong attachment point for stuff. It is an energy drain no doubt (especially since we didn't do anything in the way of thermal barriers or added insulation/spray foam), but we plan to do an insulated roof rack.

Re: Model 05 Silver Eagle

Love the color. We are going to leave our metal ceiling too. I like how it cleans. We are going to go with the Bus Kote on the roof to cut down on heat.
