2015 Rockwood Windjammer 3006 - AC unit is lame

My Rockwood Windjammer came with a 13,500 BTU AC unit which is too small for Oklahoma summers. Can anyone tell me if I upgrade to a 15,000 BTU unit, will it simply bolt on? Or do I need to be concerned about blowing a breaker with the increased AC size...perplexed....

Hi should be no problem replacing unit with a 15,000 Btu ac. Adding a second ac unit will involve upgrading the power to the TT to 50 amps. If you are in Oklahoma/Texas area the 15,000 Btu ac will not help much. A second ac is a must in that heat.

Hope this information helps Tim

15k has the same footprint.

It'll use just an amp or two more but worth it.

Same footprint for A/C! There is lots more than adding a second air unit that comes into Play for keeping a TT cool! Outside color/# of and size of windows/Atrim slides/Roof Vents Not insulated/window shades/and # of times In/Out doors/# of slides/slide covers! We have been in HOT parts of the USA and our (1 A/C) keeps us Happy! Youroo!!
