AC Closet Instal

Here's an ac mod that I did on my scamp 16. I didn't want a rooftop unit and wanted to keep it simple.

That is an exceptionally nice installation. Very nice fiberglass work! Have you tried it out in really hot weather?

Door gasket? Can't tell from the photo if there is one or not.

Where do you pull the cold air in from and what do you do about draining the water?
Beautiful work on the fiberglassing!

There is a little hole in the fiberglass just below the door, you have to look close to spot it.

Thanks for the nice words! The cold air intake is on the roof behind the awning. It took a a pretty big rooftop rv refrigerator vent cover but it's barely noticeable. Rather than sacrificing roof strength by cutting a large hole in the roof for the vent, I drilled a 5, 3" holes evenly spaced then modified the plastic cover for the curve of the roof. I fiberglassed the cabinet to the outer shell to make it completely water tight so I didn't put a gasket on the exhaust door. I did build a fiberglass lip around the door, just no gasket. Not yet anyway. I'm not really sure if I need one.

8800btu. I've used it in the 100's and it keeps it at 70 easily. Walmart off the rack window unit. $100. West Stem epoxy and fiberglass cloth $125. Cold air vent cover and misc hardware $50.
