Pete,

Now I understand, thank you! It sounds like your friend is removing the lower pane of the two-jalousie-set, and then "opening" the upper one which then makes a visor for the AC unit. So the unit is more than "one pane" high, but only the lower pane is being removed.

Ah so!

Raya

In his photos (been a while) it looked like the upper pane was completely closed when he was finished.

I would be concerned, if leaving the a/c unit in for travel, that you would get an 'oil can' flexing that could cause failure of the f/g.

Between the PO's unit in the dinette window and my upgraded replacement of that the AC a year ago. the AC has been permanently in place in the dinette window for 28 years with no ill effects to structure or fiberglass.

I was concerned about that however, so when I redid the mount I sandwiched all the edges of the fiberglass with 1 1/2 aluminum strips inside and outside to reinforce the mount to the fiberglass surfaces.(You can see the outside strips in my earlier photos) You can lift the trailer off the ground now by the AC, although I wouldn't recommend that as a regular jack point.

On these temporary window mounts, I would certainly not recommend leaving them in for travel.
