In this picture you can see the ceiling light between two Ac units. To run wiring you have to drop this light. This will give you access to run 12/2 wire. There is a channel in ceiling that runs from behind refrigerator to this light and from this light to vent where the Ac will be installed. There is spare wire in there for a power vent option. Too small to run Ac. ( I used this wire when I rewired interior lights to a switch at door). So basically I ran new wire from vent down the channel to light and from light to behind refrigerator. I also had to remove refrigerator vent cap from on top of camper to direct wire down. I also used fish tape to pull wire.

This is back of refrigerator from outside. Yellow wire is the new Ac wire. I first displaced electric panel below refrigerator to make sure things were clear so I could drilled a hole thru wood. Then I ran wire down.

I went to local Rv dealer and found this 15 amp male plug. Used a 1 7/8" hole saw and drilled hole for plug. Ran wire out hole and connected it to plug. Installed plug with three screws.
All this took me about 4 hours. Only help I had was two strong guys to lift Ac unit up to me while I was on roof.Upper unit weighs about 80 pounds. Had camper out about two weeks ago in 105 degree temps. In afternoon sun I would run both units and they could maintain 74 degrees. New unit blows nicely into front tent. I only use second Ac when first starts losing ground. Also for initial cool down during setup.

We went out for 1st trip in new TT last week July 3rd-8th. Temperatures were 100+ daytime high & we were glad to have 2nd AC. Still had to open up main AC to blow more air into living-dining area.

Following suggestion in other thread & installing "GILA" Reflective film on dining-living area windows & skylights (way too much heat comes in through the skylights), doing this before trip to Branson for 8 days end of the month.

I like the idea of a second a/c to help during the peak hours and to serve as a backup if the other breaks down. The problem is the only roof vent I have is located in the bathroom. Has anyone added a second a/c by cutting their own hole in the roof? Can it be done? Would there be a need for additional bracing to support the unit?
