Good to hear that it is quiet. I guess one could put some rigid insulation around the area to make it quieter if there was room and a need

installation

Install is complete, the answer I have been looking for, quiet, balanced heat and cold. First step, cutting the floor under the curb side for the inlet and exuast for the condenser, boxing in between the floor and belly skin with aluminum, installing grills to keep the bad stuff out.

installation

unit in place, the bunk is raised up 2 inches, one would have been enough but we decided to add a one inch rigid insulation on top of the unit for good measure

Instalation

There are three air outlets, one on the side of the curb side bunk and two in the bulkhead by the door, one high, one low. The supply for those in front runs under the refrigerator and up the back of the front closet.

installation

the thermostat can go anywhere, as the temp sensor is in the return, I put it on the curb side back bulkhead, in the bunk area. It is very straight forward, with a variable fan speed, on high it is really moving some air, on low nice and quiet.

the return air is not hard plumbed, rather it uses the empty space under the bunk and rear bedstand, with a grill in between the bunks, I plan on making a custom grill to replace this black plastic one

Just like nothing ever happened, looks like it did in 1951. Great drapes by Audrey at JPA Drapes, fantastic workmanship.
