There are 2 reasons I chose to recirculate rather than creating an air intake. First off it was much easier and less invasive on my camper to recirculate the air. The already is one large hole in the floor for the hot air exhaust. I didn't want to add a second. Also the way the unit is set up the intake air is brought in through vents on the top and both sides of the unit. To cover all of those and vent them in a already tight space would not have been easy to accomplish.

The secondnd reason is one that was just mentioned. I think it would be more efficient to cool off the already cool and dryer air then bring in hot humid air from outside. The recirculating air in a car analogy fits my thought process. I may be wrong in this but for now I'm happy with the results

Mike

Is there any way that you could post a picture of the bottom of your camper where the hot air escapes from your AC unit? I was wondering what you do to keep rain and moisture from getting into the hole in the floor during driving in wet conditions or if you are concerned that it might be an unwanted entrance for bugs etc. Thanks! I hope that you can post a picture(s)/ explain as I would love to perform the same install on my 13 foot Burro!

I'm interested in how you do this also.

Additionally, do you have a drain on the bottom of the air conditioner? Some ACs are made to not drain. I was worried about water being splashed around and getting things wet. (NEVERMIND this comment. I saw you answer in the post below. Sorry).

Lastly, how are you getting fresh air to the intake before the exhaust duct work.

Long story short ... I could not figure out how to deal with all the issues. I ended up installing a portable air conditioner unit. It takes up a lot of space and costs a fair amount more than a window unit. I would like to know how to do what you are doing in case I want to change over.

Thanks.
