We have finished the re-install on the house air conditioner that came with our Scamp
, Ziggy. We decide to re-install the house unit because it seemed to work well during a dry test in our garage, so...
I built a slider using drawer glides from Lowe's and 2" X 4" to make a table to allow the A/C unit to slide outside the camper into the "outside" where the A/C unit was designed to work as well as drain. I have not included any drain pans or water lines for the A/C unit because we don't intend to use it while on the road. When we stop, and intend to deploy the A/C, we'll simply slide the A/C unit out into the outside allowing ample breathing room and all the drainage that is required to eliminate the drainage issues common to A/C units. This idea seems perfect and seems the simplest solution to the A/C issue for us.
Of course, we'll have to continue to report how this is working, but the construction was not too difficult, although it was a lot of custom fiddly stuff to make the unit fit through the existing holes through the Scamp
shell that was already cut.
Only time will tell, but the first test in running in our driveway as I type this review. I had planned on this install so I had already run the 110V line on it's own breaker when I installed the charge controller a little while ago. Simply adding the outlet and terminating the existing wiring and we were in business.
