2nd air conditioner?

If a 2nd AC where added on roof of rear bed to a 1985 31', would the trailer support it fine? Would the extra weight behind axle be a problem. I know the service would need to be 50amp, and getting wire to AC may be a challeng. Need to run a drain, or would it run off outside? Has anyone doe this? We do alot of hot weather camping.

Get right or get left, and have a blessed day !

1978 Sovereign second AC

See my signature line link to the '78.

I used the '78 extensively the last three years while chasing the shale oil plays.

I added a second electric service (20 amp) to run the rear AC or the electric water heater.

Services are not too hard to run. Pics are in the rebuild thread.
