I notice in the specs that the original optional AC in my Bigfoot
17 was only 7100 btu. Everywhere I look, I can't find a new one under 11000 btu. The main problem I see is that an 11000 btu unit requires more power than a single Honda eu2000i generator
can produce, whereas a 7 or 8000 btu might work with the one generator
, saving me $900 and a lot of hassles.
I was thinking of searching rv salvage places for an older 8000 btu unit, but I'm wondering what people with the same size trailer think. Is 11000 too much? Is 8000 enough? Can I just use an 11000 and not turn it up too high? (I don't know if they run that way or just cycle from all the way on to all the way off) Then, of course, there is the question of how used AC units age and whether they are even worth buying...
