Well tonight's the night, got a couple of guys with weak minds and strong backs coming to help hoist the 13.5k up on the roof.
Looked like a possibility of rain last night so I didn't pull the roof vent.
I'll pull it when I get home and wait for the "crew"
Beer on ice but only after the unit is on the roof and we are off .
Pics to follow.

Very jealous. I may try my hand at this during the winter, or maybe I can convince my dealer to 🍻

Hardest part was fishing the wire since my camper is only 30 amp I had to obviously run another 20 amp service.
Could not have done it without the 36" dewalt inspection camera.
Second hardest part was getting all the dicor and putty sealant off of the membrane after removing the vent fan.


I used a std profile 13.5k dometic Brisk Air II a/c unit.
Weight 72 lbs.
Height 1 foot 2 inches

My camper sitting now "nose high" about 5 or so inches higher then hitch height is 12' to the roofline which puts the highest point of the a/c at about
13' 2"
My new max air vent sits only about 1" lower then the a/c "see pic"

Part list included:
1) 13.5k Brisk Air II std profile non ducted a/c unit.
1) non ducted ceiling kit.
1) furrion 30 amp receptacle.
1) 30 amp 2 gang power distribution panel.
1) 20 amp breaker
1) 25' of 12- 2 with ground
2) romex connectors

I'm going to wire the second a/c down the front ceiling into my wardrobe then Down into my basement to a single curcuit breaker box then over to the 30 amp bulkhead receptacle.

Clear as mud?

Clear as springwater pal, well planned with considerable thought about how to safely install and use your second AC.

My bedroom AC is an add on Dometic 13.5KBTU and while it does a great job it is noisy as heck. Wish I had a fan speed control to minimize the noise a bit. There are days when I wish it were on a separate 30 amp circuit like you are planning. Our seasonal cg has only 30A service and I can run only one AC at a time.
Btw this new brisk air II is fairly quiet and has 3 speeds.

Now I could only hope for "Indian summer" to really test it!
