25FB 2nd AC?

Living in the northwest, I rarely, if ever, use the AC in my current or previous trailers. It seems as though many dealers are bringing in 25's with two AC's. Do folks like two AC's in their 25's?

Also, in my 19, I don't like using the heat pump for warmth as it is so much louder than the gas furnace.

Thanks,

Jason

There are times I wish my 25 had 2 AC units.

Thanks!

If you ever travel in TX, LA, MS, AL, GA, FL, SC or the midwest in summer, youíll appreciate the two AC units. Not so much in the PNW.

If the temp is above 85 degrees and indirect sunlight, I often wish for a second AC. Often times, I will close the bedroom and bathroom doors to make the living room more comfortable....I admit, I like it cooler than most. I want my AC to be able to bring the temps down to 70 or below.

A 25 ft may look a little funny with 2 AC's, but if I were buying new I would get them.

I've heard enough people say they wish they could get their trailer cooler.. in the southern climes anyway. If you like it warmer you may be fine who knows, I know I'll be trying to acclimate to warmer indoor temps.

Think I've become spoiled with A/C in my old age, I've often said if refrigerants were banned I'd have to leave Texas promptly... which I don't want to have to do hence my decision to try to adjust a bit .

But enough rambling hehe

I have two units on mine, I'm only using one while I can get by with one, but when it gets Texas hot, I'll have an option to turn on the second one.

The ducting on our 2016 worked great. I imagine with a non ducted unit the 2nd AC would be a must but it worked fine for us with just one. Then again, the hottest we camped in was 100.

For those of you who have a 2nd AC, is one ducted? And the other ceiling mount?

It also looks like you lose one of the fantastic fans, in the bedroom, with the 2nd AC.

If you are going to play in Texas you need 2 on the roof! Another benefit is the second AC comes with a 50 amp hook up.

I'm a proponent of doing less with more.

Rather than going down the 2 A/C path, I'm going to looking at an improved and more efficient A/C unit. The Dometic Blizzard NXTs are now getting more reviewed as they make their way into the market. They seem to be well reviewed and add meaningful cooling capacity over the older model units.

I like my 2 fantastic fans too much so this is the path I will take when I give up on my current 12.5k Penguin unit.
