Howdy!

How about a little fun?

Here is my planned location to install AC2, a Penguin II. Please tell me this is crazy enough to work.

The "CG" of the Penguin is well forward of the AS rear seam,internal rib. Here you can see the PVC pipe is positioned where the rib will align with the unit.

"Theoretically" the primary load will be in contact with supporting structure with minimal contact on rear (over the end cap).

I have what I think is a good "routing" of the drain and power inside the ceiling and wall.

Some questions:
1: must the whole ac unit be in contact with roof?
2: should I add additional support beneath the AC unit to minimize chassis flex?
3: should I mount the unit backwards and cover when traveling to protect coils?

My only other install location would require cutting another roof hole forward of existing, then closing up the existing because there will be no room for vent once AC is installed ahead of it. On the inside I will make a board to cover the opening and route ceiling light wiring to the location so I can reinstall the ceiling fixture.

I realize adding the 100 pounds on the rear will affect balance, tongue weight, etc, especially that far aft.... But what are my options????

Thanks for any wise condolences or help!!!

Peace
Channing

The reason I had it so far to rear was to use the existing hole where fantastic fan was located.

Info from Lewster made decision to install forward of existing then sealing up that hole.
