TBH, I doubt we'll use the bedroom A/C much. That puppy's less than 5' above the mattress. I'm thinkin' we'd be able to hang meat in there with the A/C on.

The nights were cool this weekend and with just the fireplace going, since hot air rises, it stayed almost too warm in the bedroom.

We alternate ours. Use the bedroom a/c alot during day to make the living room more quiet and vice versa in the night. You are right, the fireplace can get the unit toasty. We keep the bedroom door closed so it doesn't get too warm.

2nd AC mostly comes in handy during the summer, especially when you go to setup and turn both units on to cool down camper very quickly vs hrs with one unit

Happy Camping

Agreed. Especially during the 100 degree days. Unit gets pretty warm by the time we get to the campground.

The vasoline (petroleum product) doesn't cause the O-ring to break down?

I removed my on-board water filter already. Besides the cost of the filters and spilling water all over the place when you change it. Decided to just get rid of it and use a hose type. They couldn't have designed a worst place to put it. I also think it improved my pressure at the fixtures even still using my 45lb pressure reducer. Glad you had a chance to get out and things went well. I still say Rockwood / Flagstaff brand is one of the better lines of FR. I'm still happy with mine after 2 years now. It's a good bang for the buck. my unit go's in march 4th for service. They are going to install two shut off valves inside the the belly unit for the low point drains. When you get caught in freezing temps they both froze on me. This way they can be empty and won't freeze up. When they thawed out they started leaking right where they make the 90 degree turn to drop down out of the unit at the fitting's. I had to open the underbelly up so It could drain. Lucky there is a 14x14 panel there to open. Better then filling it up with water. Just another dumb design.

It won't cause any harm that's appreciable. I've used it for years and never saw a breakdown of the rubber. Try it as an experiment. You don't drown it, just use a lil' to make it slippery then clean off with a soft cloth. If your still uncertain, try cleaning the O-ring really well and clean out the groove it rides in too. There is a plumber's grease you can buy that is made for rubber products. Either way the drip will stop.
