All has been well with the single 15k btu AC until today... We are in St Louis, arrived around 4pm in 90+ degree heat and the WJ did not cool down until the sun was almost down. So, I am thinking of adding a 9000 btu unit in the bedroom where the fantastic fan is located. So far all of the RV parks we have been to, have a 30amp and a 20amp next to each other, (when we get a 30amp service). Since the 9000 btu unit will run off a 15amp circuit, I will just run an extension cord to the 20amp outlet.

Anyone done this before? Is installing the unit in the bedroom vent just a matter of wiring and mounting, no mounting mods needed, just some wiring to get the 120vac to the vent opening?

In the next 2 days, going to go to the hardware store and buy some reflextix to install on the windows, I can tell that will help, I could feel the heat coming through the windows...

You are right about the windows letting in heat. I made some black out curtains for our big window in the back. Also added the pillow like covers over the vents. This has helped keep the heat out and the cool in. In Ohio 90 degrees heat and humidity our 13000 single unit will keep the camper about 78 which is ok until evening then it drops to 75 where we keep it set.
