Keytag,

I was invited to write a series of articles on Solar. My reward was the pleasure and being asked to do so.

The article is flawed and could be improved. But it is no less valuable. I've not looked at AC units for some time and to find another couple of DC units is worthwhile.

I do question the swamp cooler. It seems quite pricey for what it is. But then, growing up a bottle of coke was only a dime (or 5 cents at a school dance) makes me frugal.

This is the first time I have read a article directed to RVers that used a fraise like "many truckers use".
Many of them have spent a lot of time using 12V to make life better.

as for the 9200. I have a Lance 1055 its the largest non slide camper lance ever made. I have been out near Vegas when it was 113* and the Polar cub 9200 AC kept us in the Low 70s which is just fine by me and that all I need to run it is a Honda 2000 is another bonus.

The amps are low, but at a meager 6824 btu’s so is the output, meaning it might be a bit marginal in campers with slide-outs, and snaking #2AWG wires (or larger) up to the roof could be a bit problematic for some, though is also available in 24v…Still, a most interesting proposition due the uber efficient what’s apparently a variable speed inverter compressor…Hopefully a sign of more things to come, opening up the possibility of true solar sustaining cooling!

For a certain part of a niche market, namely those with small RVs and a penchant for boondocking, this trend is a game changer. I'm looking forward to how this develops.

    It's awesome the article listed a wall-mounted one.


    A very possible near future option.[emoticon]
