I installed it where my bedroom vent was.

Adding a second a/c to a 30 amp camper.

We actually added a third ac unit. We have a 50 amp camper and the third has its own 30amp plug and cord. No problem cooling it down

I just been to vegas, 42/107. two units could not keep the trailer cool. My front bedroom was good, its got it own dedicated unit. The rear garage area was definitely not cool, I had teenagers in there. The main living area was ok but the unit was close to running constantly. In those temps a third unit would be a godsend

TFordes, you know the pedestal normally doesn't have an independent 30A feed... it uses the same feed as one leg of the 50A. (L1 or L2) . I do virtually the same but I have 30A on one leg and 15A on the other... way less than your potential for trying to get 80A from one leg. Seems like that could be a problem.

Ian, if they're like most, they keep going in and out. Nothing can cool down the great outdoors.

WW we have been doing it for 5 seasons no problems at all
Also usually have a fridge plugged into the pedestal. Camp 60 to 70 nights a year in different campgrounds. Even run the heat strip in the garage A/C unit when it is chilly

that's amazing... I've been in CGs that could give decent 30A. You're saying your 3 AC units could all run at the same time? learn something everyday! thanks.

WolfWhistle yes all three at the same time. Sometimes the microwave and the hot water heater on electric. Now if I fire up the now dryer and the curling iron at the same time with all three running sometimes I will trip bit not all the time. It is pure awesomeness. Having my own meat locker on wheels
