Thanks,

Danny

Got mine for $18,800 pre tax and title. We love it!!

In my trailer the ducting in the roof goes past the very last vent, that is a lot of wasted air being forced to no where.

So I completely sealed those 2 areas off and it helped to increase the amount of air be forced into the trailer. It just makes no sense to have the ducting go to the very front and very back of the trailer and not have a vent there to expel the air.

Hope that helps?
Thanks for this info. We upgraded to the 15K AC due to the length of our 27rkss. I didn't think the 13.5K was quite enough. I blocked both ducts off today. Not sure how far they go but more than my arm could reach.

Ozark.13.5 blows really hard I can only imagine what a 15K would be like. I suggest looking at directing and closing off vents you don't usually use. I think the OP is really on to something here. The ducting is not made for each individual trailer/5er I would think.
JMHO of course.

The reason I doubt the 13.5k being enough is from past experience. We had a class A 32' that struggled in mid summer heat to keep up.

I guess a lot has to do with the floor plan. I am going to experiment by closing off some vents.

You are right. Last summer ours was struggling to keep it comfortable during the summer months! Rule of thumb on a 13.5k is about 18-20 degrees cooler than outside. I wonder if you can get a second a/c installed on these?

I was planning on buying one of those non-condensating a/c unit from home depot and put it in my camper this summer. A buddy put one in his 5th wheel last summer and it made all the difference! $300 well spent in my eyes!

I put my receiver and HD box below and to the left of my TV. Pain in the butt trying to hide all the cables. I have Direct TV also.
