Correct. And 100% intentional. My wife can't sleep unless it's 68F or less so if we're on 30 amp or the genset, We would use the ducted 15K during the day and the non-ducted 13.5 for sleeping as it will cool the bedroom to the required temp.

We don't generally have more than ourselves camping, (and our usual "partners" have a 43' tag axle American Eagle, so they would have room for the guests if required.).

Love bug season is mercifully coming to an end down here so as it is a beautiful evening, I took the chance to clean and treat the roof and wash and wax the camper. Much prettier.

Walked by the camper, hung my head a bit, shook my head side to side and sighed a bit. Did hear the fridge was working properly!

Another weekend at home - cleaning out the garage.

"bpadamson", if the wife is deployed then she must be military. Please extend to her a great big Thank You for her service.

After our last camping trip I found an infestation of carpenter ants throughout the insulation around my fridge. It took over a week to remove them.

The refrigerator cabinet had a lot of dead air space which is bad for ref efficiency, so while making it a little less inviting to creatures, I decided to improve on air flow using insulator board.

I used 3/4 inch board to line the wall and cut channels for the wiring that led to the micro, antenna, speakers and kitchen lighting. The old wires just hung along the wall. After placing the wiring into the channels, I covered both walls with 1/2 insulator board and secured them with flat roofing straps screwed to the horizontal studs. At the top I boxed off the dead air space and created a duct to allow the air to escape through the top.

I hope this is all worth it and just wasn't over engineering on my part.

The "X's" on the last pic are where the wires are running up behind the panel. I didn't want to run a screw into them.
