Re: I need some thoughts on Air Conditioning

if you have a 16kw genny and can produce 240v I would look in to a ductless mini split that you use in homes? You will get a larger btu count that any of the rv ac units can produce. But you will have to have it running when sitting still.

I think the bus equipped unit should be looked in to. They are not the greatest but better than nothing when you can run your genny. I always like a back up?

Hope this helps

If you don't own the tools to do the job this is good advise.
I do have the tools and have a big can of do it yourself Freon that I'll put into it to see if it'll kick on. Of course it'll take a few cans and I'll have to see about leaks. More than anything I'll do this so I know if it's good before tearing out something that works.

Bapos, I think the three roof airs will work just fine without putting a new unit in. Things will be tight enough space wise (and money wise) as it is!
Never make nachos at 7-11 if you don't have the money to pay for them (No, it wasn't me!)
