2nd ac unit in bedroom
 
We're purchasing a new Silverback 33IK and I was wondering if the 2nd A/C unit in the bedroom is worth it as we will likely be spending a couple of months in the winter in Florid or Arizona and spending some time in SW Ontario during hot summer months.

Would the Create A Breeze fan in the bedroom suffice?

We stay in the Casa Grande area during the winter. March is the only time we have used a/c. And then only in the afternoon. Nights in the desert cool quickly so shouldn't need in the bedroom.

The probelm is when you really need two AC's a fan just won't cut it.. if your prewired for a AC in the bedroom I would say do it. If your not prewired then I would do a fantastic fan....

I would op for the second A/C you never know when you might need it, more then likely down the line at sometime you will be kicking yourself for not doing it. The biggest complaint ever with RV'S is that the A/C's are undersized. It would probably help increase the value and saleability down the road if you ever do it...

We went with the 2nd AC after we roasted while at the beach the 1st year. Wouldn't hesitate to do it again

I have gone both routes and believe me I would never go with a single unit again. One time in a hot summer day and you would be regretting your decision not to get the second unit.

It's worth the money to get the 2 a/c installed

You'll never regret having it. You will regret not having it if you travel south of Tenn, ga, mo, etc.

As the others have said, go for the 2nd air. If nothing else it will make it easier to sell when you buy a new fifth wheel.

I agree with the others in that you won't regret having it but you may regret not having it at some point. It also serves as a backup. Our last trip the main unit kept tripping the breaker so we just used the second unit and point a fan out of the bedroom.
