Roof Air

I did a lot of research when I had to replace the A/C in my 31' International, I chose the Carrier 15k BTU from www,rvsupplywarehouse.com priced at $649 shipping included. It was a bear of a job swapping out the old Armstrong, it took 3 of us 5 hours. The results: I'm pleased with the performance, it runs very quite, the only downside is the unit has no drain pipe connector, condensation is slung on the compressor, any excess runs off the roof. Note this is not a low profile unit.

Tom:

I have the same a/c unit installed on our 31' Airstream. Installed on the original pan. Water goes via 'tube' just like original a/c unit. I've had no problems with our unit ---- no leaks, etc.

interesting ...using condensate to cool the compressor....usually units are designed to not pick up too much superheat(the refrigerant)....leaving some cooling effect for the windings...i have some misgivings on how good this arrangement is...some years ago window shakers used to have a slinger type fan blade that would direct the condensate onto the condensor coil.... maybe that is what you have...Carrier has done some nutty things in the past...hope this unit performs for you...good luck..

p.s.spraying condensor coils is not very effective in high humidity areas...
