Thanks, but as I am waiting on warranty replacement of other items I'd rather not say. If you want to post yours I'd be glad to tell you higher or lower though. I feel it is already going to be hard enough to get the items as it is......so your's came with that pipe already installed?

My build number is after you........so obviously they knew the RIGHT way to do this and chose not to do that. So if I am not the only one with this problem I think I smell a slew of potential lawsuits coming Berkshire Hathaway's direction for everything from the simple "replace my trailer because the floor is rotted out" to the more complex black mold health related issues. They really need a QC department..........seriously.

Question is, which trailer is correct? One hole WiTH tube installed, or three holes WITHOUT tubes which SHOULD HAVE tubes?

I'm pretty sure you don't want water running down thru an open hole in your floor, soaking the wood and getting between the laminate and sub-floor so my guess is any tube is better than none, no matter how many holes!

I've made some changes to the A/C installation, with credit going to a lot of other folks who've "experimented" with ways to get the A/C working to the point where it will actually cool the trailer down as required. While I've not tested on one of our HOT days (typically in the 90's with 90% humidity) it did work much better with outside temps in the 80's.

I did three major changes:

1. Installed a switch for actually controlling the little exhaust fan as opposed to it being controlled based on ambient temps (it would come on even when it was only 70 degf outside).
2. I "boxed" the A/C outlet and insulated surrounding cabinetry using Owens Corning Foamular boards (because I could get them at Home Depot!)
3. I purchased online a new Dometic hinged refrigerator vent door and replaced the small, restrictive vent installed by Shasta.

Pics are below, here's hoping it continues to work when we do hit the summer highs (but I'm convinced it can;t be any worse than what came from the factory).

Doing the same AC mod this weekend. Was the Dometic door a direct swap? Got a link you where you purchased? Or at least part #?

Thanks for the pictures!

What's the purpose of the PVC pipe?
