Wiring a second Air Condition

I have a 1995 Land Yacht. I am adding an ac unit over the bedroom. I am going to wire it separately since my coach is only 30 amp. While installing the unit, I found heavy duty 12 ga. wire was already present. There was no power running to this wire even while the coach was plugged in. I would love to use this wire to power my second ac but I don't know where the other end comes out. It does not appear to go to the breaker panel. Is anyone familiar with this?

Wiring rear air conditioner off of shore power

I started a thread detailing how i did mine in my 310. I cant remember the exact title of the thread but if you go to my stat page i think youll find it there. Most if not all classic moho are wired so the rear air runs off the generator only. I rewired so it can run off of shore power or the generator.

It must come out somewhere - buy yourself a continuity light, clip one end on the wire - than go looking with the other end. Try any extra wires in 110v receptacle boxes, wires in beaker boxes, where your 110v comes into the A/S, etc.

By the way. I installed the rear a/c and ran an extension cord to the interior just for testing purposes. The Atwxxd (names changed in accordance with forum rules) a/c is extremely quiet and very cold. It was cheaper and as far as I can tell way better than the Dxmetic up front. I still have to hardwire the thing. I was told that the wire i mentioned in a previous post is most likely run by the gen. But with the gen running, I have no power to that line and I can`t find a breaker inside or outside that energizes the wire.

I'm just guessing but that 12 gauge might be a solar pre-wire?

In any event, you've got to find the other end for it to be useful to you!

Try to find where the feeds from your generator enter the coach. May be just inside the generator enclosure. Im guessing they terminate in a junction box of some sort. If you find that you may find the other end of that wire.

Just FYI
It's perfectly okay per the forum rules to mention vendor names. What's not okay is venting about negative experiences.

Quoted from the CR's;

"This forum is not intended to be a mechanism for people to vent frustrations about vendors or sales from private parties. Please settle your differences with the seller, manufacturer and dealer through the long-established legal or arbitration systems or the Better Business Bureau but not through our community."
