Are you sure about the drop in temp from 98 outside and (at least same inside) down to below 50 degrees...... I fear a mis-print or a bit of an exagerration.
Where were you measuring the inside temp? Perhaps the actual exhaust of cold air at the register was 50 degrees but are you trying to say that the temp say in the forward compartment was that chilled? If so better call Guiness's Book.
Is this the 15000 BTU unit?
Does your trailer have the built in drain hose?
Have you seen Inland Andy's claim that you can connect your slinger tray to that line with a little modification? Whachya think bout that possibility?
The other unit that I took off is put aside..it's complete and works.
I may put it up for sale, real cheap..(local pickup)
No, it wasn't an Armstrong unit..(I'd kept that one, if it were...lol)
You know, the unit was parked inside the shop and, not directly in the sun..As for the claim of temp..I have only the tech in the shop word for his measurement. Where he took the readings, I couldn't say but you're most likely correct.
When I went inside to check the work, it was cold, I mean it felt like I'd stepped into a meat locker..(goosebumps type of cold)
Now that it's outside, I'll run it again and..see what it comes in at..
Yes, it's the 15,000 btu unit w/heat pump.
My unit does have the built-in drain hose and, I was somewhat disappointed that it wasn't hooked up.
I need to review Andy's comments about the drain as it's still not too late to modify if need be..
At this point, I felt it was wise to replace the unit's A/C while it was still working and, could be done at my conveniences.(cost/time wise)
