Read this post. https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/27694224.cfm

Easy as pie!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

In my rig I find one unit is great for 12' length with a 20 degree Delta T but the space has to have closed doors and the rig has to be shaded. With a bunch of windows a 5K unit is going to be hard pressed. If the rig has 240 available an 8 or even 12K would be a sure thing.

Yep...I'm thinking 8-10,000 BTU mainly for the extra room I may get to work on that intake and exhaust issue....the more I think about it, the more I want to get out and do some trial and error....I'll get to it after a few other projects are finished.

I should probably start a different Topic for this but here goes....I'm guessing I'm not the only person with a Pusher with a dash air that does not work...I always get a chuckle out of used MH Ads when they emphasize that the dash air works!

Anyways, as I was sitting in the MH today while my brother was over, he says, why not just get the MH air fixed and as usual, I explain that if it were only the rear compressor, I'd do that in a heartbeat but more than likely, it's a leak in one the the lines going to the front condenser.

As I thought this to myself, I wondered if anyone had EVER( in my case, my 10KW generator is up front) put the air conditioning compressor on the generator engine? Now of course I realize that you'd have to have the gen running in order to do this, but it sure would lessen the length of tubing required to replace that run from front to rear not to mention the higher efficiency it would afford. I Know, kinda far out there but what the heck.

i really doubt that there is shaft extenstion
you would have open up the generator housing cut slots, change or add a pulley belt and clutch

why do you think there is a fault/leak in the tubing ?
unless you KNOW you damaged it somehow, that would be last thing suspect

buy some leak detector spray, charge the system with freon
craw under there and spray everything

then you WILL know what is going on
