Have you had some feedback from Forest River on this?

Dave I was initially confused at also. I became aware of the 2nd A/C and 50 Amp option when I spec'd out a 8289WS on the RVW site. Then I looked at the Forest River Brochure and their web site and did not see that option listed. When I decided to go with a local dealer, the first thing that I did was have them contact FR to verify that it was an available option. Living in AZ, it is a must.

With regards to people having an A/C added by the dealer, I'm wondering how they are doing this with only 30A service, unless they are running an additional line out of the RV to plug into another circuit, OR are only operating one A/C at a time, which defeats the purpose of dual A/Cs.

Also, since there are various Ceiling Plenums available for an A/C install, even if the duct work is there, if the wrong Ceiling Plenum is used, it will not vent into the ducts.

Guys,
Like I said when I talked to FR they told me It Could Be Done At the Plant. Either two 15,000 or two 13,500 along with the 50amp service that also would installed there as well as the duck. So it would be complete when was delivered.
