Re: RV There Yet? The tale of a 92 BB TC2000

Back at it over the weekend. Floor insulation is down. I changed my mind on the plywood and took it all back. I found some tongue and groove 1x6 on clearance and decided to use it instead. I have almost to the back of the front wheel wells down and I love it. The plan is to use a light stain, lighter than honey and then some poly. Pictures will come in the morrow.

This wood was originally $10.95 and we got it for $3 for each 8ft board. Grabbed 75 of them so we saved close to $600. If we have no left overs we will be at $1 a sq ft for some very thick flooring!

Hit a snag with our a/c idea. The unit showed up but was damaged. It worked for 24 hours and cooled awesome but it wont come back on now. Taking it back to Sams for a refund. Im curious if I should go with a roof top or stick with my original plan.

Re: RV There Yet? The tale of a 92 BB TC2000

Personally...I have a loathing for the rooftop RV units ( I have only owned one over the years ). Way overpriced, big holes in the roof to leak, major pain when they go down, expensive to repair, crappy fiberglass covers that even after all these years they have not managed to make remotely UV resistant. Window units have come a long ways in efficiency and are cheaper to replace than having just a service call on a rooftopper.

Just my dos centavos.

Our fifth wheel had a 13.5 btu roof top and it struggled when we spent some time in Nevada. It kept it just about bearable. It was ducted which I believe is the only reason it worked at all. I took the damaged ac back to Sams and got another model which was in stock and cheaper with a 4 year warranty. It is a portable heat pump and dehumidifier all in one.

All I have to say is insulate, insulate, insulate. I have a 10,000 btu window unit and at 92 outside I got an easy 72 inside temp and we have high humidity. We will see how it handles the 100+ this July and August.

Some day I play to run a ducked system. Either a mini split or converted window unit.
