My questions are:
1. Where did you buy the unit?
2. Did you seal off the ducting from the front AC or leave it?
I plan on making a cheater box for 50A service so I can run the 30 amp and the additional 20 amp Ill add for the rear AC if the campground doesnt have separate 30/20 connections.
I purchased an Atwood 18000 (equivalent) BTU from a company in Lake Havasu Nevada for around 550 with free shipping. I put it in where the roof vent is located in the bedroom, ran the wiring through the styrafoam in the ceiling, place the thermostat on the vanity wall in the bedroom, ran the AC down through the ceiling into the aft closet in the bedroom into the power distribution panel. I changed the power distribution panel to a 50 amp two separate circuits, installed a 50 amp transfer switch, installed a 5500 watt generator, a new power cable, and it all works really well. The ducting is already in the ceiling to tie this new AC into the duct system. The Atwood is unbelievably quiet, 1000% better than the Dometic.
