You guys are right. Got the answer form the manufacturer and the AC would not work. There is a option with a hydraulic generator but it is expensive so I am better off doing something else.
Thanks
Peter

You could try using the Roadtrek approach which is a big inverter, powered by more batteries and a second engine driven DC alternator.

Why would you need a second compressor? My suburban has one compressor servicing two A/C units. One unit is the normal one with an evaporator under the dash, with the second evaporator and a/c unit in the rear.

The evaporators are the parts that need to be replicated, the under hood systems remain the same with the exception of a second freon from the compressor to the second (new) evaporator in the rear and a return line to the condenser.

Thoughts?

The compressor has to have sufficient capacity (read displacement) to handle the extra evaporator.

True, but it might be easier to fit a higher capacity compressor then it would be to fit a second compressor.

Although a larger condenser may also be necessary.

True on both points. I just wanted to point out that it was more complicated than just adding a second evaporator.

I'll check to see if I can find out the capacity if the one in my 'burb and see if it's any different from a pickup and if I can find it, I'll let you know the capacity for you to compare. We have a '10 MB gl350 bluetec which may have the same system. They are now also offered with a second AC unit for the rear seats but I'm pretty sure it only had one compressor.
