just priced a 13500 btu on line(new) for just over $400 and a local rv tech will install it for $150 in the rear over head opening and furnish cable and and an end for it. brings the total to around $550. and the total cooling btu to 28500 btu think I will go that route I can always plug an extra cable in to power source when it gets hot enough.

That sir is a most excellent idea! Now the question is how to run that extra cable for my 5r. Thanks

Would you have to upgrade from 30 amp to 50?

I think he is running a separate cable to the power pole when needed.

New 18,000 BTU AC Units

As it is warming up here in the USA, anyone with the new 18,000 BTU units care to share their experiences on performance?

I used the new Atwood in the heat pump mode and it worked great. In order for the heat pump to work the outside temperature needs to be above 45. It kept the unit nice and warm and we did not need to use the propane furnace.

We have been using the furnace. Its not that great... Not as good as the furnace in the hurricane. However.. Lots of heat goes into the washroom... So we keep that door open. We will change out that furnace vent for one that closes off

ok I have the 15000 btu ac in the front of my fr3 thirty footer and planning on installing a 13500 in the rear if anyone already has done this --- how does it cool the coach in real hot weather with both ac"s running. would like to know how one 15000 and one 13500 work or.... if you have both 13500 , how do they work in really hot weather 95-110 F. ?? I am planning on only using the 13500 with the 15000, but if someone has already don't this and it is still not desireable , maybe I will get a 15000 for the rear to go with the front one. I would rather not be "overkill" on this installation.
Thanks

We will have a 13.5 added in Phoenix on May 4th. We added a dedicated 30 amp circuit for it. We will give details when we can.

Ihave a 1500 on front of my fr3, but is not quite enough- Have ordered a 13500 should be here Monday Hope the two will be enough- have been told that the rear ac will not help very much to cool the front down any more. Hope that is not true, it looks like it would help the front to get cooler to me.
