As always, you don't mess around.

Good job.

I got the front air conditioner finished today, it's not really all that hot today, but they cool things down nicely.



The condensor is nestled between the frame rails in front, not sure if I will have to do some extra ducting to get the air flow right. These things don't really seem to move all that much air, even when things are running hard after the initial slow start. Time will tell. Have I mentioned how QUIET they are?

This view is from in front of the right front tire, pretty open to the fan, there is quite a bit of air movement out this general direction.



Same side viewed from the front.



Other side viewed from the front. It doesn't hang down as far as the front entry step and is farther back.



I was able to use the larger copper line, I cut the insulation off then but it back on after I had it installed. Lines go around the windshield on right side. Overall I am quite pleased with the whole thing. Measuring the power required to run, they could both be run on one 20A circuit. Only time will tell if things hold up in the bus environment.

There's one just like it in the back. I didn't run it all that long, cooling down quite nicely.

Do you have a plan to protect the AC? I look at the general state of the under body and it looks like it's going to take a beating from the rocks on the road, no?

Where would the rocks come from? It's in front of the tires. The rear one, which is behind the tires is protected.

Looks fantastic... Just about how I've been envisioning it... WELL DONE, sir.
