Installed two new 15k btu Ac units. Little late for this question. I replaced with my 12k btu. I used Moho this weekend plugged into shore Power and they were not cooling to the fullest. The cord was extremely hot. Should I have not gone to 15btu units? The generator when they are both on cools to where the windows almost frost. The generator sounds like it is really working. What did I do. Do I have to replace with smaller ones? Oh I hope not. Thanks!

A/C power draw

Myrtle,
Do you have your Classic set up to run both A/C's independently on the 30amp power cord?
My Airstream's power cord arrived with a VERY chewed up power cord at the male end. Just got it finally replaced with a replacement 30amp cord I purchased from Vintage Trailer Supply. Old cord would almost burn your hand when unplugging, not any longer.
Wondering if your breaker switches are up to this amount of amperage draw, considering going from 12,000BTU to 15,000BTU.
Something to consider if you can find how many amps the old units were, as compared to new A/C units.
Just my .02....
Thanks, Derek

one other thought, your power supply may have not been up to you using the 15K units. Did you check power post for 'good' power?

Funny thing happened the other day...
I was over at the M/H a while back and I was fiddling with the LED's in the reading lamps over the sofa. The window covers were on, and it was darkish inside... I was happy with the results with the same 13LED bulbs I used in the cockpit map lamps..
Reminder...



Anyway, I got distracted, left them on... and worse... when I left I had not turned off the house battery isolator!

Fast forward... about 10 days... We go over to check, drop stuff off...
I open the door and see the Lamps still on!
Wow.... The light draw of the LED's and the depth of the Golfcart Batteries... I checked the voltage... 12.2V...
Impressive unplanned test!

That is great! Definitely an upgrade for me in the future!

Anyway, hopefully, it sells, and I can have some space in the garage again...
On the bench right now is the sheet metal for the passenger side mirror foot adapter to go from the original mounting holes to the new mirror foot.
The drivers side was about an Inch thick and pretty much a square puck.
The Passenger side will be more complex...
It will be thicker so about 2.5" to space the mirror out more, as the awning arm is in the way of a clean view. Also I will push the mirror back about 4" as the mirror is much taller, and is obscured by the window frame in its stock position. The adaptor puck will be swept back in classy fashion somehow....
Not sure if I posted these pics before but here is a refresher...
Original mirror with outside and inside view.



New Mirror mounted with lower forward screw in original lower forward hole.. You can see how it is taller and blocked by the window frame..



Here it is repositioned rearwards using the lower rearward original hole..
Better view..

I also fixed the holes and cracks in the ABS step moulding.. will take a pic when i remember...

I posted these two pics in my polishing thread, but here was the last update to include it here...
Just a little more detailing on the lower parts..
I have been unable to get a polish on the Genset vents... so I will leave them brushed finish as a cool contrast...

If this is in the forward hole, remember that you are going out 2" and I think you would get full view at that point?

If you move it back to far, you will not pick up the BLIND SPOT there. You don't want to see the mirror frame anyway.
