Advice on water pump and AC

Im buying parts for the Playpac because I'm going to change it from 15 to 30 amp and it doesn't have some things that I want.

I got the roof repaired thank goodness and it should be great for a long, long time.

I have a lot of parts already but need a water pump. I just don't know what size to get. I'll be putting in a small water tank somewhere... Don't have that bought yet either.

I'm in a sweat over where and what AC to get also... I can't put one of those big ones on the roof I don't think and I sure don't want one hanging out the side... Helppppppppppp. I'm meltinggggggggggg......

I put a SHURflo® Whisper King™ Pump in my Fiber Stream, and I like it so much I'll also put one in my Compact Jr. when I rebuild it.

Many people have installed an AC unit in a closet and vented it thru the floor, others through a wall.

I know of one person who vented the AC exhaust out the roof. Works well.

if your unit didn't come with a roof unit, you probably can't put one in without some serious modifications. therer most likely sin't any roof support for an a/c unit up there.

which leaves you with a window mount or closet mount.
personaly i don't care for a window mount. just think they don;t look very nice.
for closet mount you have to decide where your willing to lose storage space.if i were to try it, i think i would look at mounting it under the seats somewhere. or the bottom of the closet.

Certainly the addition of a closet AC unit takes space however there are a lot of ways to increase the useful space in a trailer and easily overcome the loss of space.
