Remarkable AC transplant

THE PLAN

A never before procedure involving the transplant of a 13,500 BTU AC from a 25' CCD to a 26' 1954 cruiser and the reanimation a new 15,000 BTU unit onto the CCD.



Could it be done, the team assembled at a secret location in Texas.

The TEAM

The expert AirDream team:


(ArtStream) aka Michael



(62 Overlander) aka Paul & Annie

Paul on roof checks the health of the 13,500 unit prior to the transplant.

I check the health of the 15,000.

Dr. Paul reanimates the 13,500, with all the usual complications.

The 15,000 is slid up the ladder with assist from Dr. ArtStream and put in place, but not without the usual wrong parts being sent from Domatic. In fact the completely wrong model was sent and had to be removed.

Great story Doc, but I have one question.

It sounds like the Cruiser is doing well with the new unit, but your unit rejected the transplant. Do you now have a 14"x14" sun roof?

The right unit was obtained from Dumeatic and the install went smooth.

Operate on MY OWN UNIT, not with this team!

Both the CCD and the Cruiser belong to 62 Overlander
