2nd Air Conditioner for Crusader?
We had our Crusader 296BHS down in Moab a couple of weeks ago and it took awhile for the unit to cool down. The ducted vent in the front bedroom wasn't putting out much cool air and the bunkhouse was nice and cool. It was about 80 degrees F outside and quite cool at night. No trees on our RV site and we had 50 amp service.
The overall temperature was fine, but that experience left me wondering what I'll run into with hotter temps outside and wondering what may be involved in adding a 2nd AC unit.
I know the Crusaders are ducted AC units and pre-wired for the 2nd AC unit and is a 50 amp trailoer. Just googling around a bit, that left me with a couple of Crusader specific questions:
1. Does the 2nd AC unit for Crusader tie into the ducts or does it vent directly into the bedroom?
2. Does the factory thermostat work with two units?
3. Is this an easy DYI project?
4. Anybody done this and have suggestions?
This week we'll have the 5th wheel in Salt Lake City with temperatures in the mid-80s. We'll see how it performs. It looks like we'll have trees this time.
