I posted a while ago the name of the place I bought a converter system for the rear air. It has been working great for 6 years. On the web, contact Power Solutions. The cost for the system not including a 20 amp rated cord was Approximately $100. Their cost for the cord is reasonable. It allows you to disconnect the gens 20amp feed and reroot it to an additional cord for the needed extra 20amps from the power poll.

I like it! So it's a matter of cutting into the genset cord and wiring it up?

It's been a while since I started this thread when our need to replace both air conditioners surfaced. Well at the time I managed to get one of the units to work so we postponed buying anything. Fast forward to this spring and before I started dismantling the 345 I tested both of it's air conditioners and they worked great.

So, instead of buying new units I parked the 310 right next to the 345, bought a couple of 2x10's and laid them across the roofs between the two units. I then procceded to remove the front air conditioner from the 310, slide it across to the 345 and then basically just pushed it off onto the ground. I then removed the front air conditioner from the 345, slid it across on the 2x10's and installed it on the 310.

Repeated the process for the rear air conditioner and bingo, working A/C on the 310

I'm sure I only postponed the need for new units on the 310 for a year or three but that means the money can be used for higher priority items.

Raveson, keep forgetting to ask, did you install your JTB Power Solutions unit? Thinking that this will be on my Christmas 'wish-list' this year....
Thanks, Derek
