30 gallons of water cooled from 86deg to 47deg in 15min...time lapse..
Working on the other internal air exchangers this weekend. So for the rear of the bus rooftop unit is operational (needs a bigger water pump) but keeps the bus at a cool 72deg so far running only one compressor and pulling only 10amps 240v. So far so good - continuing to iron out the kinks.

wow! not bad at all.. thats serious cooldown quick! just what you need for a bus that may be parked shutdown for a time.. cant wait to see what you get when you have all 4 air handlers and both compressors maxxed out..

you'll spin some condensor fans then!

Flash frozen. Jackets are hanging on the outside of the bus.

Might have to borrow that slide out idea if I ever build out a van!

Wow ! I never realized just how big a vanhool coach was until I just saw one parked t a local Home Depot.. That's one massive bus and lots of under belly storage too.. I see why you chose this to make your motor home from!

Yeah I have an Instagram account, sort of, but no pics are up. Can you use Instagram to post pictures in this forum?

Cadillac - yeah, she is a big bus.. Smooth ride and lots of room for a crazy buildout..
Been running and testing chiller last few days. Thinking I want to add glycol so I can drop the water temp closer to 30-35 deg... Been running water at 47 because at that temp the plate exchanger runs at about 37... I don't want to get to close to freezing temps without the glycol in the system. I can't add that till the rest of the other 3 exchangers are installed. As of right now - the back of bus gets nice and cool, more so than the front area with the minisplit...
