has anyone placed a central HVAC system into a bus yet? I was wanting to use a High efficient furnace and A/C and make it central like a home HVAC. I can get a 95% Furnace for a few bucks more than a RV furnace thats bout 65% efficient. Using the 95% I can use PVC vents and not cut a large square hole into the side. plus if I can find a A/C unit that works with an A-coil inside the furnace that would eliminate the two A/C (maybe just use one housing to cover the condensor and cooloing fan) on top of the bus and hopefully save money and power. What is this Mini system I've heard about?

I've heard that one of the drawbacks to a mini split is that the inside part won't drain condensation if it isn't level.
Yes thats true, I had one in my power house and after a bunch of monsoon rains the shed setteled and it started spitting at my inverters. Hmmm water and electronics dont mix . Now everything is level again and all works fine. Most likly would be fine once you were camped and level but going down the road???? Who knows
