Checked the weather report today-hot on Fri. and Sat.---thunderstorms possible Sun.
Have gotten our a/c installed-so we are good to go!
Getting last minute touches done on our Compact Jr. Condo.
Not sure what kind of activities to plan -we are bringing our `hillbilly golf ball game`.
Any other ideas?

Ok Richard, am I the only one without a/c... anyone have any extra room (that's a joke, get it?) Did you do a window unit, duct it in, put in a portable??? Oh we're gonna be hot...

Help!!!
Lee Ann

We bought a small Haier a/c unit from Target ($50 clearance) . We put it in the side sliding window. Will remove it when we travel but it is light weight and easy for even me to remove. We will put some insulation strip around it so it will be sealed from rain and letting the cold air out.
We have an extra-can`t resist those bargains-if you want to buy it for what we paid-we will bring it, maybe we can get it installed. Both were new and in the boxes-nothing used. Just let me know-we will bring some extra stuff to help install with.

Mrs. C---that sounds great---dinner, meet and pics Friday. Then we can talk about everybody's plans for the rest of the weekend. What's a "hillbilly golf game"? Anybody have anyother games, or should I get some??? I'll have to think of something that has a winner, as I have a cute prize I could give!!!!

Too funny---we bought the same a/c last year at end of season at Target for $50!!!! So, sounds like a good idea, Lee Ann. And we'll all be there to help you with ideas!!!! Ours will be totally portable, too, and we used the sliding window. Deely made a shelf that sits on the sill (he made a groove in it, so it holds on to an elevated part of the sill). It has two hinged legs that sit against the belly ledge of the camper. At the top, there are two boards (one inside, one outside) that bolt together securing everything. Then we will put some insulation strip around ours, too.

Lee Ann, do you have a fan or two you can take? Fan's will help to a least keep the hot air moving. We did a camping trip where we dry camped. I took two small battery operated fans and it really did help. You have electricity there, so a fan or two depending on the size should help wonders! Good Luck! Enjoy!

I'm good on fans, installed a fantastic fan not long ago and we're bringing a regular fan too.

Vicki, my camper is 2 sides rather than a top and bottom so I don't have a side seam for support. Mine had a window unit in the front when I bought it but it was put in poorly, leaked, wood rot, and the unit was too big and they broke the window to get it in. I had to have the front window redone. I like all your idea's about dropping it in when you need it.

Mrs. C, my window's are really small. Could you measure the unit from side to side... if it would fit in the back side window, I would LOVE to figure out how to rig something up so I could take it in and out!

Lee Ann---Ah, yes---now I remember how the Burro is put together! It's a pretty small unit---hopefully it will fit in your window!

Just measured the a/c unit--13"deep, 11" tall, 17 1/4" long. Richard used the holes in the a/c for the window support and put angle iron instead (aluminum) to hold the a/c in the window. We didn`t support the a/c with anything. Seems pretty stable. Will remove the a/c when traveling and keep it in the van. Installs in just a minute. Let me know if it might work for you. Thanks
Mrs. C

Mrs. C

The only window I could use would be the front. The old unit was 18.5" across so the 1.25" shortage would fit perfect without doing damage. I think I may take you up on the a/c offer. As for putting it in, I'll check out what you've all done and get ingenious probably Sunday after I'm home with a hardware store nearby. Who wants to work while you're at the lake. Can't wait to chat RV with you all soon!

Weather has changed for Perry Lake-isolated t-storms for Fri
scattered storms for Sat
showers possible for Sun

But, this is Kansas-weather can change, just wait a few minutes.

See you all tomorrow-Mrs.C

Awww well, we'll just hang out in your camper (LOL!)

We had a dandy rain this moring! Yikes, couldn't see to drive home from eye doctor. I wouldn't mind spending alittle time in the camper with rain pitter pattering and some thunder and lightning, but please no strong winds, floods or LEAKS!

We native Lawence Kansans, so it's all good!

After some rains this week, it appears we DO have a leaky Perris Pacer! So while we're camping in the rain (possibly) this weekend, we'll be trying to figure out where it's from and what to do!
