I love the timing on this Turbs... should have the project completed in time to turn the ac off and heaters on right!

anxiously awaiting to see how yours all turns out! I am still prepping and planning on my end to do the same thing, just using the 20 amp outlet on the pedestal instead due to the fact that here in Nebraska most pedestals are only 30 amp with the adjacent 20 amp... rare to find a 50 amp at our local sites...

Turbs, love that your are providing details & pictures... I am planning to do this mod next Spring prior to any trips out West, etc. I am going to move the 13.5 A/C to the BR & install the new 15K unit in its place so that the 15K runs through the ductwork. The other (2) skylights have MaxxAir fans installed that work in push/pull fashion. I have their temps set to auto start if the power goes out & the temps start to rise.

Rare here not to find a 50 / 30 / 20 combo.

Just some brief documentation,
I believe that I've found the path for the a/c supply .
After about an hour with the dewalt inspection camera " omg you cannot do this job with out it" I now have to run power from the bedroom vent towards the bathroom wall on the left side of the camper.
There a found a hole in the top plate from the ceiling to the interior wall that separates the bedroom from the bathroom.
At the floor of the wall into the basement I found another access hole .

I'm taking pictures with the inspection camera tomorrow.

Only demo I might have to do is cutting a hole in the medicine cabinet " mounted @ the ceiling" to get the wire from the ceiling 90 into the space on the interior wall.
I'll put a famous forest river "false" plate in there afterwards.
