Hi Don,

I really appreciate the photos! I got the AC on the roof and blowing cold air yesterday. Finished up and put the cover on today. First photos at http://www.airforums.com/forums/f427...tml#post540302. I will start a thread with more pictures tomorrow, perhaps. Weíll see how I feel after completing the cleanup. I will probably adapt your drain idea.

If you must, you can line the ceiling with 1/4" foam tape, but it rally isn't necessary unless you are getting evaporator freeze-up from too much cooled air directly feeding into the return.
Lew,

Are these the snips you refer to as aviation snips (tin snips where I grew up)..?

I bought a set of these on sale a few months ago (you know one of those "a man might need these sometime" purchases).

I will have to admit that when the compressor heated the cover up, the pinstripe tape came up over that area where it was stretched tight making the curve from side-to-side to front-to-rear. I was able to press it back down, but the curve isnít nearly as graceful as original. Itís in the middle of the top, so you would really have to work hard (get up on the roof) to see it, so I didnít stress out about it.

twin ac's

Just wondering, my 30 excella has twin ac's , I noticed most units have one, one is the original heatstrip type penguin and the other is straight ac. Is this a factory option or was the second one added? Also if necessary could you even run 2 on 30 amp power?

Thanks

Don't know if it was an option.......but you will NOT be able to run both on 30 amp service. If your trailer does not have 50 map wiring and unmbilical, perhaps you might like to upgrade to 50 amp service to allow 2 units to run together.

It's not really that difficult!
