Yup. It worked great in California...just needed water and 12 volt
power. Had a bad habit of dumping dribbles of icy cold water on DW in hard left turns, however.
Had two 5,000 CFM ground mounted ones at our house up in the high desert. Cooled the whole house easily. Took just a trickle of water and power for the blowers. Maintenance nightmare cleaning them up for winter, though.
We didn’t plan to move to Alabama, but ended up having to on a work-related move. Drove the van across in the winter. Never thought about the potential problem with only a swamp cooler on it.
Thought we were gonna die from the heat and humidity when we went from northern Alabama up into Tennessee with the van in late summer one time. SWMBO decreed that was the last time she would ever ride in it...I took the hint.
Guy that bought it eventually ripped the dash and engine compartment apart and swapped in an A/C unit from a similar van. I presume it worked, but I never could find the parts to do it.
