Well we picked up the unit yesterday... Needless to say I was very disappointed in the PDI as usual. They hadn't fixed any of the issues that had been addressed, 2 of te living room blinds weren't even attached at the bottom and couldn't be raised, the residential fridge is leaning to far back and is not allowing the freezer to close all the way, the Lippert linc pad will only work when plugged into the usb (and no one can answer why), water inside the front led strip. Dump valve handle colors were mixed up. During the walk through the guy closed up one of the rear slides into the bathroom door causing damage to the bracket. After close to 3 hours I was finally on the road.
Now to address the ac, I was told by the salesman and tech the main unit is a 15 BTU and the front is a 13.5. They had the main dump open and the unit set at 61 all day under a car port with no direct sun (outside temp 100). The front ac was turned all the way up as well. When I closed the dump it became almost unbearable inside the unit... According to the tech this is because the duct is a single run and does not narrow to force air out of the vents meaning all the airflow goes to the front bedroom and rear bath, pretty much bypassing the entire back bedroom and living room. He also advised that if my front unit was ducted it would force more air into the living room etc, estimated expense over 1k for this to happen. They used duct tape and completely shut off the front bedroom and tapered down the front and rear baths to try and force more air into the main area, then recommended I leave the main bedroom door open and run both full blast.
My parents and good friends have 5ers the same size with 2 acs, they both are like ice boxes....... This is completely ridiculous, I endured I purchased a unit with a second ac to ensure there was enough flow to cool the trailer, I do understand it will take some time to cool down and will run pretty much all day in the Texas Heat, but to have 2 units running full blast the entire day and still be sweating inside is unacceptable.........
