I bought our surge protector / power strips at Staples Office Supply. They were around $25 each but I wanted a decent surge suppressor since the TV, as in TeleVision , plugs into one when we use it. The second unit is attached to the storage unit I added in the front of the trailer. I don't want my mini Keurig coffee maker getting zapped!

Between those two surge suppressors and the 30Amp Surge Guard protecting the entire trailer I should be fairly safe from most power issues...

Hi Don
My wife and I were sitting in the A192HW today testing the Kool Kat heat pump. It cooled the camper nicely but we also noted that no condensate water came out of anywhere. It was about 80 degrees F with 45% humidity. Shouldn't we have seen some water dripping from the 2 tubes outside the heat pump?
Also, there is a switch inside the camper just to the right of the heat pump. Do you know what it is for? It doesn't seem to do anything.
Thanks,
Joe in NH

That is the switch for your 12VDC water pump. When you are using the internal water tank it is what pressurizes the system...

As Wayne has said, the switch is for the water pump. Fill your on board water tank, turn the switch on and lift the faucet for running water. As I tested this out, it didn't matter how many times I lifted the handle--no water. Then accidentally I turn the faucet sideways, wow, running water.
I've had no water draining from the Cool Cat. If you remove the plywood cover on top of the Cool Cat, you will see it has a holding tray under it, holding water. I presume this will drain, depending on the volume of water contained in it. Don.

A Couple Small Ones

1. Added this shelf unit, the shelf is easily removed for travel. I used 3M automotive tape for the bracket, didn't want to put screws into the wall. After setting it up for the photo, stepped outside----crash, bang. It fell to the floor, I guess screws it will be.
2. Mounted an axe holder in the front trunk. Convenient and out of the way.

Sink Shelf

Here's another mod I made today. I remember seeing a post of someone adding a barrier beside the sink so the bedding didn't get wet. I thought a shelf would be more practical, adding space for a soap dish, towels or whatever. The shelf is a friction fit to the counter top and a little block on the wall to keep it level. Sleeping with one's head to the opposite end of the bed won't interfere with the shelf. It's easily removable when lifting the bed or when breaking camp. When I'm back from camping, this week, I'll give it a coat of paint. First outing with this camper, one day away.

Thanks Mickrock for the link. Here's the one I just ordered from Amazon. It's more the style I want to mount above the dinette table

What do you call the mounting bracket for the mug/wine glass shelf? Thinking I might like to add something like that to stabilize the dinette table. We rarely use the table but got caught in the rain a couple weeks ago so went inside for card games. Invariable we lean on the dinette table and tip it. Thinking that mount would provide just the stability we need if mounted in the proper position.

I found this in a google search, as I have noticed this also from room AC units... also I think 45% humidity is not very much and probably little water is created.

"In regard to condensate drain pans not draining well. This is not a new concept. Many window units have a ring around the outer circumferance of the condenser fan, which is technically called the "Slinger Ring). In normal operation the bottom edge of the fan passes through the condensate pan and picks up water which is the slung into the condenser coil. The evaporation of that water off the condenser coil actually increases the efficiency of the machine.
