Skoolie AC

This post is for anyone that has been living in there skoolie for sometime, I have a 40' skoolie that were designing with S-shape floor plans. When we picked up our bus the previous owner had already removed the factory AC blowers from front and rear and cut the lines going to them. And we removed the outside condensers. I saw on another post that alot of people dont recommend this for the cooling while driving... Can 2 mini splits that put out about 20K BTU and about 20 seer handle cooling the bus while driving it? And for those people that only have a mini split AC system how well does it hold up driving? We plan on traveling out west so it will be warmer where we go. We havnt purchased our mini splits yet.

put one of your factory systems back in up front, insulate your bus as you would anyway for comfortable living... problem solved..
