13 foot Scamp Air Conditioner

Thinking about putting a window air conditioner in the space where the refrigerator would be located. There is a vent in the rear, where the refrigerator used to be. Anyone think of any reason why this wouldn't work? The 5,000 btu air conditioners are the perfect size to fit this space.

Be sure to mount it so that ALL of the water drains out side the RV.

You may want to look up mounting A/Cs like that on this group. There's several variations. One thing I'm thinking, you will need to mount a fan on the TOP louver to help pull out the heat from the small A/C. If not, it may recirculate on itself and overheat! I've heard of that happening.

I also 100% agree with AC0GV that the compartment MUST be waterproofed or it will be disastrous! I think most build a pan with a hose attached to it to run to the outside. That would be MY preference.

Just because a particular size A/C will fit in the space
doesn't mean it should. One of the biggest mistakes I
see people make is not taking into consideration that
the unit will require a certain amount of air space in
order to function properly. Not meeting minimum ventilation
requirements is just asking for failure.


My suggestion would be to query the manufacturer as
to the minimum amount of air space acceptable for proper
operation of the unit. A secondary method of air flow
control may also be needed, such as a fan, to sustain
proper fresh air movement through the unit.


Hope that helps ....
