Re: Air Conditioner

yes we have one like it its a 9000btu, it has only 1 exhaust hose I think its 6'' wide, we used it last summer in the front of the bus , and hung the hose out the window. it work great, so now this spring, Im mounting it in a cabnet, Im going to use a furnance take off boot,mount it in the back where the hose mounts , then right out the side off the bus, as well as the drain hose. its a bit on the noisy side but it works, and my generator powers it. In the back of the bus which is master bed room, I have a 5000 btu a/c mounted above the back door.
I just cant bring myself to cuting holes in my roof for a a/c, thats why I went this way

What ever you get, I would recommend a double hose model (more efficient).
how did you install yours? did you cut holes and vent out the side? 13k have you ran that unit with a generator?,
