Crusader 315rst 2nd AC

Anyone know if you can add a second AC to the Crusader 315? Or is the one unit enough in direct sun?

Mine came with the bedroom 13.5k, I dinged it up and replaced it with the 15k and love it. We camped July 4th weekend in 97 degree temps and Texas humidity, the 2 AC's kept the trailer at a comfortable 70 degrees all day.

Good to know if I go with the 315 I may get another 15K instead of 13.5K

For sure, the price difference is really nothing between the two.

No need for a 15K, it only blows in the front bedroom.
I personally would recommend a low profile unit as it will be at the high point of your trailer.

Your 315 is not ducted? That is strange. Mine is ducted and both AC's are connected.

2nd Air

When I purchased my 2016 Crusader 315rst it only had the single air conditioner. This unit comes with ducted air and if you purchase a new unit with both air conditioners installed at the factory both will be ducted. If you add a 2nd air in the bedroom to a unit which did not come from the factory with two air conditioners then the bedroom air will only blow in the bedroom. This is what I was told when I purchased mine. So far I have been satisfied with the performance of the single 15k air however I am investigating the addition of a 2nd air. If I add a 2nd unit it will be a low profile unit and the most quite one I can get. Hope this helps.

I would only add a low profile unit no matter what and if the first unit broke replace with low profile as well, not even sure why they bother with other units on 5th wheels but I guest the cost.
