WindJammer 3006WK A/C, is one enough?

Hi All,
I am looking at a WindJammer 3006WK and was wondering how well a single A/C unit works. Does anyone have any experience with 100 degree temps and the single air conditioner?
Thanks,
gectisme

We have a 35' V-Lite.
We upgraded the A/C to 1 15,000 BTU, when we ordered.
This summer was the hottest on record here.
We learned to turn on the A/C "EARLY", before the TT got hot.
If we stayed ahead of the heat it was fine.
If we waited til the trailer got hot it took a LONG time to get it cooled off.
On my next TT I would just order the second unit.
Have fun and good luck.

We have a 2016 Windwammer 3029W with a single 15,000 Btu A/C and it was more than enough for the several days of upper-ninety degree days we had in PA and VA this summer. We were never out in the wide open and always had partial shade, though.

It depends on where you live & intend to camp

You didn't say where you live or if you intend to camp in the southwest. I live in north Texas and have camped around the this state, NM, AZ, NV (106 that day) , CA, and KS. I recommend you to put the second AC on or it just will not keep up once the outside temps reach 95 or more. If you live in the Pacific Northwest and plan on only camping in cooler climates, then one will do. Keep in mind the power will go to 50 amp, but you aren't paying by the Kw/hr anyway and you can always turn one off if it isn't needed.

Oh, I have a 35' Windjammer and it has two AC units: one 13.5K and one 15K or we would have fried at the Texas coast and in Vegas.

Ok, Thx, sounds like a 2nd AC is needed.

I appreciate the replies, thank you. I live in California but plan on traveling all over the USA and staying in areas for up to a few months at a time and I am certain some of that time will be in the South and some of that time during summer.

So, haven written that, has anyone added a 2nd unit after the purchase and if so, is it working out OK? The reason I ask is I am looking at a used Windjammer that only has one A/C unit.
Thanks

Adding the second AC later

I can't speak to getting it done after purchase as ours had it when we bought it new. However, if I have the opportunity I would swap the 13.5K to the front location of the TT and move the 15K to the main location of the unit. Opposite of what they are when the factory adds the Diamond Package. It would make sense as the original location cools more square footage than the second unit, so put the bigger unit where it is needed most.

I think I saw a post here a day or two back that said the dealer quoted $1000 to install an A/C.

We have a 3029W Windjammer with two AC's and I'm glad we do. We're full timers and currently spending the summer in central Texas. One would not have done the job,,,,,so it all depends on where you'll be. We used to have a 29' Jayco TT with one AC and the poor thing never shut off in the summer.

No doubt, if you plan on going anywhere near Texas, you will need the second a/c unit. Best investment you will ever do.
