One Vs Two Air conditioners

Looking at the 38FL. Is the one 15,500 BTU air conditioner sufficient to keep it comfortable in TX, LA and FL summers? Would the second 13,500 BTU be necessary?

Thanks,

Tom

Short answer is yes the 13,500 A/C would be necessary, unless you like to sweat.

Personally I think a trailer that is just over 40 feet long and has 5 slideouts should come with the two air conditioners as standard equipment.

Get the second unit. If not needed, don't turn it on. If needed, you will wish you had it.

I had two requirements, two AC's and more counter space... everything else was just bonus goodies. If I do not need two AC's I will only run one, but it is there when needed.

We had three requirements: Two A/Cs, more counter space, and Steadyfast stabilizers.

Slick salesman pointed out the new ducting system as alternative to needing a second air unit. That was more hot air than fact. Get the second unit.

I will tell you we had it out last week, Man its A beast. Towed great behind our GMC 3500 Dually. Loads of room, Just A great all around unit.

Kirk37r Yes I would like to know what you know about the REFR. Unable to figure out how to send a PM. Me and this form have yet to reach an understanding after a year.
