Man, I love this site! I'm posting like crazy. Anyway, I'm a brand new Boler
owner, and I'm thinking of putting in an AC (air conditioner). I've looked at a whole host of ideas on this site, and youtube, and bolerama (I think), and others. Anyway, I'm not keen on cutting a big hole in the side of my camper. And I know from experience, you can't just put one in a closet, because they need to exhaust heat and have outside air access too. So here's my idea, and I want to know everyone's opinions of it if you don't mind. I was thinking of mounting my AC in the closet across from the kitchen counter. Anyway, I'm going to mount a drip tray below it, to collect water, and have it drain out of the side through a little hole that I'll drill. That's the first hole. Then I want to drill a 4" hole in the side, and mount a regular bathroom shower vent. And inside the cabinet (above the air conditioner) I would mount a 50 cfm bathroom exhaust fan and attach the vent to it. I would use a down facing vent, as to blow the hot air downward. And then either above that hole, or beside it, I would drill another 4" hole and another vent, for passive air intake. The hole assembly inside the closet would be semi sealed. My thinking is the 50 cfm fan would force enough air out, less the exhaust air from the AC, that there would be enough negative pressure to draw outside air into the cavity, thus minimize make up air coming from the inside of the Boler
. Obviously some would anyway, but nearly as much because of this. And then other cosmetic things, like a shelf above the assembly for the closet, shortening the closet door to make it all seamless etc.
What are your thoughts on this one? Thanks everyone!
