Finish

Finishing off the inside has posed some of the same problems the outside can. As we all know the inside ceiling is curved. One of the good things about the Coleman Mach 8 is the inside trim comes with extra screws that can help make the plastic conform to the curve of the ceiling.

By the time I was done I was able to keep the ceiling gap down to less than 1/4" as you can see from the photos. If you screw the plastic vent down tight enough you can make it so there is no gap anywhere. The problem is that it causes the filter door to be smashed and it will not fit into the designated area. I was able to trim the door slightly and found a good compromise.

I have used the Mach 8 a number of times now and I like it very much. The inside noise level is the same as any other AC. Outside the fan noise level is louder than some others. This is because of the low profile design and small area used for a fan area required it to blow out more hot air from a smaller area. Thus more noise. I find it to be a minor distraction. Most of the time when you are out camping you are not sitting outside visiting with the AC running inside. Well that has been my experience anyway. Good luck on your projects.

Question now is, "how well does it cool?" Don't forget a bucket under condensate line. You can time the run and get idea of how well it removes water from air

Well I can tell you it has been about 100 degrees around here and a good time to test my new AC. It works very well with very good air flow that blows strong all the way to the bathroom and front seating area.

The inside temperature of the trailer was 95 degrees and I had it down to 70 degrees in 20 minutes. Also the condensate pump works well too. We usually do not have much humidity in this area but we did the other day when we had some thunder storms. The pump worked great. I am very happy with the Coleman Mach 8. It has my recommendation.
