I'll be your Huckleberry! As soon as I can find a unit from someone that will honer the unit. I wont spend the big bucks just to see if this will work. I am sure it will work but still I have a limit on how much I will spend and it has to be what I want in a unit. I understand this is one of the worst times to buy a a/c unless you want a window unit. I really don't. I never liked them. Too much noise for one. And the placement as you said. I have to do something soon and the places where I like to spend my money doesn't sell what I need. Amazon said they will have what I want within 2 weeks so I will have to wait and see what happens. But if someone else finds a good deal please let me know!

PS, I had a ac unit on my roof in my ex 5th wheel and it too was too noisey and it had the ducts. I like the noise level in a split unit. from 20 to 30, unlike any window unit or roof top unit.

Ok I just ordered my mini split unit. It is just the a/c and not the heat and not a dc inverter. The reason I went with this unit is because I got it for 350 bucks plus 99 to ship so 459.98. If anyone wants one for their rv or home or garage here is the link and he said ask for Mike and he will give you 10 percent off which comes to the same as I paid for it. I will be getting it UPS on Thursday from NY. Here is the link if you want one for the price of a window unit.

I just installed the mini split on the Boler. I had to remove the propane reg but no biggie. I still have room for a propane tank up front.
I have the inside unit installed too. where I put it I will have to cut the cabinet doors down to fit.
Also this weekend I installed all new led lights on the outside (what a pain) and primed the whole inside. I found return paint from HD for 7 bucks a gal. Earth tone color so it will work. I also installed another vent up front. It was a busy bust weekend for me!

Well it will when I plug it in,lol. It was getting late and I had lots to clean up. I still have lots to do but I think the a/c unit will be the first thing to get done this coming Saturday. The outside part it all done now I just have to plug it in. I think it looks pretty good, I do have to go back and put the rubber pads under the bolts. I went thru the side where there was a hole already. I just made it bigger....

I think its a great idea and don't see why it wouldn't work. I like the streamlined look of the egg trailers so I wouldn't want a rooftop unit (same reason why wouldn't put the hood over my fntastic fan so it could be open when its raining outside...want one of those maxxi air units) Another big plus for the ParkLiner was the built in ac unit. Im not looking forward to it getting hot enough to need ac cause I boondock and it means 1.6 gallons of gas for 8 hours runtime lol...But good to have for a just in case situation!

I hear you but wait until it gets really hot and then tell us how glad you are about the window unit in there.

I was in the Casita this weekend and it was hot and muggy. I usually don't even consider using Air until it is almost unbearable as the noise just bugs me but I was one happy camper having the roof air this weekend and I have also owned the same exact trailer but with the inside air too for reference.

There is no comparison,having the cold air drop from above is great!

Well, The mini split a/c has been running for over a hour now and it is 64 inside and 80 outside. So, it works! Now back to Home Depot, I want to run it's own ele cord and not plug into the Boler. I am so happy because it was hot as poop painting last weekend. This weekend will be

And here is a better pic with the new paint job!
Note the gliders on the curtain track! Does anyone have info if they are the same size as CW sales? Or better yet the gliders that are sold on the tape?
And no it is not pink paint. It is a light brown like cream.

What is the minimum rear clearance on the outside unit. I was told 12" on my split unit in order to circulate the air efficiently. I'm curious if that is the same with yours? Also how much more weight are you putting on the tongue compared to the propane tank?
