Heat and Air

I have a 79 Triple E Surfside. I have had an aircraft aluminum shell made to cover the hump down the center of the trailer and fastened with stainless steel bolts. My question is will it be strong enough to hold the 100 lb air conditioner unit? It will fit exactly and I already have the electrical wiring to it so it should be a plug and play kind of.

Will that be an A/C on a hot tin roof?
Not to be confused with a cat on a hot tin roof.

How about some pictures so we know what you are talking about?

Morning Roy,
I have some pictures of the camper and it roof addition. They are too large to send through this way I think, but can them via e-mail. Mine is butchphoto@tds.net
If that would be more convienient let's do that.
I think it will be strong enouogh to hold the 100 lbs or so that the heat/air would weight without damaging the roof. I just thought I would ask and see if anyone had ever done that. I used a heavy weight aircraft aluminum, and only had to span about 2 1/2' of area width wise and I went 4' long length wise. It's fastened with stainless steel bolts and washers.
The reason i did it was one, it's a 1979 camper and fiberglass stresses after time. And two, I have a buddy that works in the fabrication field and he said he would do it for me.
Thanks for replying to my post and I'll send the pic/s along.

Butch H

HI Butch,
If you can downsize copies you can attach them to your post via the little paper clip at the top of the text box when you reply or post a new topic. (The paperclip does not show in fast reply)

I'm guessing that with the "photo" in your email addy, you know how to manipulate a picture. If not, the simple way to downsize a picture is email it to yourself and when asked select "make my pictures smaller"

Posting them lets everyone see them and keeps an archive for many years to come.
Roy
