Also a 1999 Casita never had a roof AC . The AC was in the closet on the right as you come in the door and vented out the front of the trailer on the curbside. He had the factory install the AC on the roof after he had the trailer for a few years.

Kevin, casita started putting roof AC's in by the middle of 1999. We own a 99 with the factory roof install at the time of manufacture also ours has the later model decals. Some friends of ours have an earlier 99 and they and they have the front AC but theirs also has the later decals, I guess that was kind of a mongrel year where you could end up with most anything. I do know ours has been trouble free so we may have some repairs or replacement appliances in the near future. You and I seem to have a great model year as far as reliability, Happy camping, I know you will enjoy it, Bill

Will be selling my 13' Scamp after I get it out of storage and take out all my camping stuff.

Is there a drain for the AC some where on the Casita, or does the water just run down the side of the trailer?

Yeah it just finds its way to the belly band ledge and most times when your level it will drip onto the door step, if that happens give the front jack a crank or 2 up and then it will flow back. I drilled holes down through the belly band ledge in the corners to allow draining, that relieves it pretty well.

Do you leave the water heater lit, the whole time your camping? How much water is used before you get hot water to the shower or to the sink?

Kevin, Some folks turn it off, I leave it fired up, mostly because they are a pain to get lit, once you have it lit the burner seldom comes on unless your using it but like overnight in normal weather the pilot seems to keep it warm. As far as getting from heater to bath faucet in the morning I use the hot water faucet to brush my teeth and by the time I get through the hot water has moved to the faucet.
