Interesting on the comment... so one 15k wont cool the 5er on a 75-80 degree day?
Anyone else with a similiar size camper with just one AC?
I was camping in RI this past weekend and it hit about 84-86 degrees for 2 days straight.. the nights did get cooler. I had the thermostat set at 72 degrees if I recall and kept my dog inside all day while we toured the area.
When we returned after an 8 hour day or so, the camper was plenty cool but it was running continuously. It was very comfortable inside but without running the 2nd unit in the bedroom, I do not think it would get into the 60s with just 1 AC with those temps outside.
I got the 2nd unit because I wanted to be safe and not have it struggle.. the down side to the 2nd unit is it is SO DAMN LOUD that you don't want to run it when it is time to sleep. With it being 4 feet right above your face, my wife could not sleep at all (ran the fan, not the AC portion) to circulate air.
I wish they had a whisper version of the AC to make it manageable to sleep.
