Rockwood 2703WS 13,500 A/C Too Small

Just returned from camping trip where it was 104 and the 13.5 a/c could not keep up, got over 90 in the unit. Thinking about upgrading to 15k has anyone upgraded theirs?

A/C Rockwood 2703WS

We have the 15,000 BTU unit in ours. Sun on our TT a lot of the day. Been very hot & humid in Minnesota The A/C seems to keep up well. We requested the upgrade to the 15,000 BTU AC when we bought it and the dealer agreed to it./ no additional cost.

In hind sight should have upgraded when we bought. Did they just change out roof top units on yours or did it come that way from the factory?

2703ws ac

Ours was being built when we bought it. We asked for the 15,000 BTU unit when we put $$ down on purchase agreement.

We had a 15 K btu with our 2703WS. I would add a 15 k BTU and put the 13.5 k in the bedroom.

I was wondering if I could just change out the 13.5 for the 15 without modifications may have to call the dealer and and ask. Adding another unit to the bedroom would work but would entail much more than upgrading. Maybe the best bet is to avoid 100+ degree weather without shade.

No mods between the two.
One will fit where the other was.

Even with the 15 that is a good idea.

Was in Branson, Mo in June with my 2604ws w/15000 btu a/c. 97 degrees and 70% humidity all week. And it could not keep up. 89 degrees in TT the afternoon and 66 degrees about 2 AM.

I too was in Branson that week and I don't think anyone's unit was keeping them cool. It was brutal. I spoke with several campers at the campsite and everyone was struggling. I did walk into one unit that had two 15K A/C units and it was comfortable. They were 50 amp units though.
