Window A/C custom install

I知 going to cut in probably a 10,000 BTU window A/C in the back of the bus. Has anybody had success with this? Which is a good brand? Thanks

There have been many threads showing successful installation of window AC units on this site. I think the most recent would be the Out the Gate (OTG) thread in the short bus conversion section. I am not sure if brand names matter anymore since I think most window AC units are assembled in China now.

MelodyMachine,

If it's not too late, I'd recommend avoiding a window air conditioner if possible. They're going to be less efficient and have a worse seal than something like a mini-split unit. That means more electricity required to keep you cool. Of course, the window units are much cheaper, so there's a tradeoff.

I've a 10K in my window, but it barely makes a dent in the heat. I will be installing a vehicular radiator fan in the forward E-hatch, once I get the batteries replaced.
