Using rear-A/C unit when stationary.
I recently bought a 2002 Starcraft E-450 shuttle bus that I'm going to use as a motor home some of the time and a mobile workshop/race car hauler the rest of the time. I have a question about the rear A/C. It has a Carrier unit, not sure what model exactly. I'm guessing an RM35. These have stand alone compressors, right? Therefore, if I feed it enough 12V power, I should be able to get it to run without having the bus turned on? It'd be nice to re-use the existing system because it's already integrated and works (mostly). I'd like to avoid the cost/complexity of having to use a roof-top one if possible. Has anyone done a set-up like this?
