Re: Transmogrifie and Me

I believe Spiders bring good luck. And crickets. Which is why I only brush them away when they've made a home in the RV rather than killing any of it. They eat the nasty critters I'd rather not have. Sister once freaked out because she thought I had a Brown Recluse living in my bathroom (it was a flipping GRASS SPIDER, the derp). But noooooo, she was positive it was a Brown Recluse because it had the FIDDLE on its back. Uhm. Yeah. No. That was a white line down its back, not a fiddle on its head. Silly girl.

It's fun to freak people out with Spiders, though.

I was petrified of them myself, 'til I grew the hell up and got over it. Now they're just kinda there.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me


Why would they do that.. doesn't seem to unplug so will have to cut wires or pull out of plastic ends.
Behind Panel

Not much there.. other than the above the wires are to both sides.


And the back is straight (nice and straight ) Would hate to cut it.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Could you pop out the upper back door window and put the AC there?

I noticed that some buses have swing out emergency windows. Taking one of those out would give you plenty of space for that unit.

Logically that would work, except that is where I'll be sleeping. The plan

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Measure carefully, mark your corners, use a straight edge to connect the corners, drill corners out with a drill, cut lines hole to hole with a sabre saw with metal cutting blade. Careful the cut edges are sharp. Slow and noisy work. Get someone to help you heft the A/C up as it's a bit awkward.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Hey Lorna, I read your post on AC install and look forward to see what Linda comes up with. I hope to have my bus next Monday.

All my friends here say only use RV AC units, But is see that they use more enegry than Window units, plus the cost.

RV units run on 110vac. So I am at a loss as to the reasons why one must use them. We have been having triple digit temps for the past week. We,re supposed to cool off a fee dsys this eeek and the temps will drop below 100°F but stay above 95°F for the highs.

It has warmed up a bit in here. With outside temps at 106°F, the inside temps were running between 80 - 83°F. We have found the front unit swings between 77 - 81 except during the hottest time of the day. Late afternoon sun is wicked. We are sitting under two specimens of what they call shade trees out here. We turn the front unit off at night before going to bed. It doesn't get turned back on until after 8M. Rear unit runs all the time. We never turn it off. We plan on adding a sheet of plexi on the interior side over the windows. We also are trying to design a solid awning to shde the windows. Something along the lines of the Bahama shutters my parents house in Fl had.
