Air conditioner

First weekend with the new 251rks. No news to report, so good news. All systems functioned as advertised.
Question: Day 2 , 13.5 air conditioner picked up a vibration. Not bad just noticeable. Cools fine. Others having a vibration or is this something to deal with at service?

If it wasn't doing it the whole time and showed up all of a sudden, it's something you should check out or have checked out.

It could be a loose or broken blower wheel or condenser fan.

Assuming SC means South Carolina, do you find your 13.5k cools your 251 in the summer. I am in GA and it's hot as hell, and I'm a yankee.... So curious your experience with that.

We had it in Charleston 2 or 3 weekends ago. Brutally hit and humid. It ran slot but kept it colder than southern transplants could handle ....
Trick is to set to high fan until it cools the trailer than select low fan. That will let the compressor to turn on and off while the fan keeps the cold air circulating.
Where did you buy?

After this summer I give, going to add a second A/C to mine. It came prewired for one and has 50 AMP service, might as well use it.

Had thought about getting the 50 amp, may still wish we had, but haven't had a problem. I think if this had been more than 30 ft unit, definitely would have...
