Ok. I think even, alternating ac would cool enough. Main during the day, bedroom at night.

That is the best way to do it when you are 50 amp and only have 30 amp power. The post above is correct you can not plug into a GFIC socket even states it from Camco. All power poles I have seen are mostly using a GFI at the 15 amp or 20 amp receptacle.

Is your A/C ducted like some of the other Forest River Models are? If so you can run just the rear A/C and run the fan set on low for night time use. This is what we did when we camped in Goshen IN. at the F.R.O.G. rally this year.

We had only a 30 AMP service at the rally and ran just the rear A/C all day and night but the fan was set to low speed instead of auto. This way the air was moving thru the trailer and keeping the trailer at an even temperature.

Rear is ducted. Front is not.

We've been seasonal in a QBOK on a 30A site in Northern Illinois for the past year. It got hot and humid for a few weekends but we've never really *needed* to have both ACs running at the same time.

Typically, we leave the the rear AC running and just have a regular pedestal fan blowing in the main bedroom. That way it keeps the air moving throughout the trailer. Seems to work pretty well.

I like using the pedestal fan better than the AC fan because it's a lot less noisy.

Did Sabre change that? My front A/C is ducted (my camper is of the first 36QBOKs off the line).

Mine did not come with the 2nd ac.
Dealer is installing it, not sure how it is supposed to be done( ducted or not) but I requested whatever unit they put in, to be non ducted. Blow right down on me, oh glorious cold air!

You definitely want to insist they use that box and NOT the old style with 1 vent on the front and 1 the rear. The old style is designed to push air all the way to the front and rear of a trailer- as in for a non ducted main ac.

I guess either way would work...

Down, side.... In a bedroom, Ruth would keep me cool!

I get grumpy when I'm hot... Or so the DW says..
