It does say 12 inches but if you get the brackets to install on a wall you wont have 12 inches. So WTF? Another egg head on this site showed me pics of many units installed next to walls and on brackets that don't have the 12 inch rule. Besides my a/c buddy so don't worry about that too much. Mine unit is maybe 4 to 5 inches away from the egg and it says it is 80 lbs (about) Where better to put extra weight
than on the tongue! The inside unit is under 20 lbs. And I was so shocked how quite they are. I had to get the neighbors to check it out. One of my neighbors is going to buy one for his garage (man cave) now. It was so easy to hook up even a egg head can do it.
Would I do it again? Hell ya, even the wife is happy. Better than a window unit and a roof top. Very very little noise. Less than a table top fan. I found out after the fact that you can turn on the vents to swing up and down as it blows cold air. I am just shocked no one else has done this. I did buy it at only 349.00 and it came with everything.
I will be putting a propane
tank in front of the unit (just one). I am looking for a single tank bracket now. But it isnt on the top of my list to do. We are off to buy the Traffic Master Allure Ultra wood flooring next. It is 100 percent water poof and looks like wood. Then curtains then cushions, so if you can point me in the right way on that......
