The original Ac weighs about 120 pounds.
If you remove it, the increase in the fuel economy would be about 1 gallon saved, per ball park, 5000 gallons used.
People do not travel with a full tank of water, to save fuel.
A full tank of water, reduces the fuel mileage even less than removing the AC, "AND" increases the center of gravity.
A full water tank, lowers the center of gravity, which helps stabilize the trailer when towing. Also, it's a great place to get water, when you blow a radiator hose.
