It's a Fujitzu 120v ductless split. It works really well.

I build a "cribbing" to raise it off the tongue so I could still use the distribution bars. It's offset a little because of the wiring cap on the road side. Once the cover is built (happening right now) it'll look centred I'll post pics of that tonight.

Piece of plate anchored to the top of the window frame.

Pieces of angle bolted to the plate and to the reinforcements I fibreglassed to the inside cap

Back plate is mounted to the window frame plate.

Nice job

Was hoping to mount mine transversely like you did but there was not enough room on the tongue. I ended up removing one propane tank so I can still use the tongue jack. Love my mini split - quiet, efficient and economical!

VERY nicely done - congrats on your obvious attention to fit and finish! Question about the undergirding of your tanks: These appear to be flat metal strap (what kind/quality?) w/ rubber/neoprene/? cushioning at the tank and the ends of strapping bolted to frame). I used a similar lash-up system when installing the blk and gry tanks ~30 years ago, but used SS chain threaded through heater hose as cushioning w/ end links of chains lock-nutted onto SS bolts mounted in the frame members. (And am *glad* I used SS way back when because it sure made for an easy/fast R&R for the cracked-beyond-repair blk tank several years back.)

jealous of those split ac units. Wanted one for a long time. Still using a window unit in the front of our 66 when needed. Works great but makes sitting on the couch a bit chilly.

There's not much to share on the spray foam. I had a local company come in and do it. They gave me about 1-1/2" on the walls and 3"under the floor.

Piece of advice...tuck tape all the ribs before you spray. Don't put it tight. The tape and overspray peel right off making cleanup super easy.

It's four straps of galvanized banding with a breaking strength of (I think) 150lbs. I checked at the time but can't remember. I then added some rubber mat to keep the bands from cutting through. I did all that before getting it spray foamed. I had to move one of the grey tanks about 1-1/2" because I miscalculated where the axle bracket would end up. Believe me that foam is helping to keep everything in place!

Here's the cover I had made to protect everything as we travel. He even gave me a little zipper door to access the jack controls. It has two straps that go underneath to keep it in place. Click image for larger version
