Been searching through the threads for ideas on adding a window ac unit to our 1979 Trillium
, the back emergency window that flips up. For us, it needs to be removable for travel, so we can "pop" it in the window when needed.
So we know we will be using a piece of plywood to permanently mount the actual ac unit to, and then place the entire assembled wood/unit into the open window (the end product of plywood will be painted/sealed/siding etc for weatherproofing/aesthetics). The window we will just keep flipped open when the AC is installed.
But all suggestions are welcomed on how do we secure the plywood to the window frame? We do not want to drill any holes into our Trillium
or window frame. I saw someone say they were in the process of adding a "Snap on Window AC" on a post from 2013 and they would update/photos, but have no luck fining it on here?
We are inserting the wood/unit from the outside, so need a way to clamp the plywood frame to the metal window frame on the inside. So far we are thinking maybe J hooks through the plywood at the edges with a wingnut on the outside that we can tighten the pressure onto the metal window frame.
Anyone out there add an easily removable window ac to their camper? Any ideas, tips, photos, problems you have encountered?
