I have read that these do not fare well with the bumps and bangs of going down the road. Ok for a house but not for an rv, they stop working and the mfr is no help.

There are other brands that will hold up to the pounding when mounted on a trailer tongue. I just got a RolliCool mini split, but I plan to leave it unmounted and carry it in the back of my suv while towing.

At 6.2 running amps for 5kbtu, compared to a rooftop Coleman11kbtu Mach 1 P.S. 9.0 running amps, I’d say that it’s not really all that efficient.

I think 5000 btu's is a little small. The big box stores sell 10,000-12,000 portable units for about the same money, maybe less. I picked up a used one from Craigslist (12,000 btu) about a year old for $175. Used it in a pop up and it did great. I keep one around the house and you would be supprised how many times it gets used an an emergency during the summer when a friend or relative has their central unit quit. My brother in law used it for two weeks while his CH&A was being replaced. I think they are pretty handy if you live in a really hot climate.

Awesome! Can you connect and disconnect the RolliCool any time you want?

I would check Amazon reviews first.
