Mark... Great little unit! I'm rebuilding my Play Pac and decided to go with the portable HVAC unit also... I'm building it into the cabinetry for the new galley, so you don't see it unless you need it. Does yours have the heater also? The one I got has both.

AC

Eric
My air conditioner does not have the heater function. We use a small ceramic heater and it keeps us toasty.
I am thinking about building my ac unit in too. I want to vent it through the trailer wall but I'm not sure where yet. Also I will have to create a drain for water that collects in the lower tray.
I will be very interested to see how you build yours in.
I would like to see the interior of your rig sometime.
E-mail me any time tonniebird@juno.com

Mark :cool

A/C Unit?

I've never seen an A/C unit like that. What brand is it, and where might I get info about purchasing?

Our 14' Burro has lots of windows and a power roof vent, but nothing beats cold air on a hot day!

Hey Al

Where did you get that tarp set up? It looks like just what we were looking for. Well, we want an awning, but that isnt going to happen for a while. Like maybe when we get out truck and 5th wheel.

Air conditioner

Steve
The air conditioner in my Trillium is a Fedders that I ordered through Kmart.
Check out this link WalMart Catalog

There is a tray in the bottom that catches condensation and needs to be emptied each day. I intend to create a drain hose through the camper wall that will drain the unit continually.
The exhaust can go through a window but I intend to make a more permanent vent through the wall also.

Hope this is helpful :crazy-ii

Mark... My Play-Pac has a front galley, and I'm planning on putting the HVAC unit on the left side, under the mini-fridge. I purchased a PVC dryer vent that can attach to the outside wall after I drill a hole for it. I am going to cut off a good chunk of the exaust hose (almost 6 feet long it is now) and tie it into the dryer vent. The drain I am going to run straight through the floor.

I was thinking of having the unit slide in and out as needed, but I think I am going to build the cabinet big enough for the unit to "breathe" and when I need A/C or heat just open the cabinet door. I need to talk to the manufacturer first to see if this is viable though.

I have just begun the gutting out process on my rig, so most of the stuff now is in the drawing and plannng stages. Once it cools off a bit I will go gangbusters on it.

Sounds like a plan. I will be interested to know how it works out. I am still mulling things over as to how to "install" my AC unit.
