AC location

A little help with the best roof location for an A.C. unit for a 1967 24 ft. trade wind trailer. Also is a wire roughed in for a later A.C. install? I am new to the forum, please forgive me if i don't ask the questions well. Thank You,

I have a globetrotter same year. Ac was put in the middle. I don't know about pre-wiring, doubtful. I'd get this installed. There's also an issue of sufficient support for weight. You also might want to think about if you might to add solar Good luck.

Call Airstream at 937-5966111. They will be able to tell you how many inches rearward of station "zero" the wires are. Ball park, that dimension is 95 to 98 inches, and in the center of the roof.

Station zero is the very front main bow.

The other end of the wire, for the circuit breaker, is stuffed behind the circuit breaker panel.

Add a 20 amp circuit breaker to the present breaker panel.

An external drain will have to be added.

You can do that by running a drain hose from the AC thru the ceiling and into a rooflocker. You can then run the rest of the drain hose, at a down ward angle, into a rear closet and then thru the floor.

I have an original Armstrong AC on my 68 Tradewind. It is located about 18 inches in front of the rear vent. I can give you exact measurements if you PM me. I don't know if it was prewired or not.

Pre-wired AC

We own a 1967, 22-ft. Safari. Originality it did not come from the factory with AC. The AC we added was placed in the middle ceiling vent. Our unit was pre-wired for AC from the factory. You had to look hard for the wires as they were tucked into/under the insulation about 6" from the opening. They had wire nuts on each factory installed wire so they did not short against the airstream. Factory wires were already installed to a breaker in the electrical panel.

Best bet will be in the hole for the middle existing vent. At least it'll have a rib in front and behing to support the weight. If you try to put it somewhere else you need to be sure there are ribs to support the weight. One rib and skin for the rest will not support it without future damage .

Hey Greg,
Was the wire in front of opening, or in back of it?
Thanks, Ken
