are they engine driven AC units or camper style A/C units?



if they are camper style you should just be able to pull them off.. if they are engine driven with the skirt moiunt condensers, you need to evacuate the freon first, then you can unbolt them.. take them down nicely and someone here on skoolie may take them off your hands (esp if they are engine driven)..

yep those are camper AC's, if they work you may be able to use one or two in your build for parked A/C, or sell them / give them to other skoolies that may want those.. there should be a 120 volt wire going to each one from the generator.. be careful to disconnect the wires at the panel / genny side so they dont cause a hazard when using the generator.. otherwise they are self contained and you can take them off.
