    Chris, our Dometic Turbo Blizzard lost the compressor. We were never happy with the cooling ability or the Db level. We are just investigating the mini splits. Just wondering, would a 9000 btu suffice in the 55 Flying Cloud? It has around 140 square feet. I can go with a 12 but inches are important for the install. Appreciate any opinion. Thanks, Bubba

    hi bambitex,
    thanks for your response yesterday and mostly for letting me know you are right up the road from me!!!!....OMG, your AS is beautiful !!! i would love to come see it, if possible....and pick your brain a little...
    are you doing the restoration yourself or using outside help...?
    i will need to use some outside help but i would also love to work with them and have a part in the process to be able to learn all i can about where everything is and how it AS is still in Indiana, but should be ready soon to travel here ...if it's possible to ever come meet you and talk about the "process" of restoring, please let me is my email

    thanks so much !!

    I see what you mean. I saw a fellow on youtube did a mini split on a very small travel trailer. Said it was $350 or something like that. Thinking maybe get two of them on for the front part and one for the back part. I have yet to find a mini split for that cheap though. Thanks for your help will let you know how it goes

    I am in NC we just got a 73 AS 31 foot Excella. The PO cut all the electrical parts off the AC in the roof. I think I need a new one anyway if it did run. What I meant was I see on line that the part that is inside for the mini Split can also be inserted where the old AC part is. It does not have to attached to the side .
    Hopefully the link below will get you to what I mean.
    The outside part is still on the tongue. Also that part that is on the outside I guess there isnt a chance you can take it off an bring it inside and then connect again since there is freon going through the system. I was kinda worried all the bouncing etc would screw it up. Also did you use copper pipe or do they make flexible pipe to connect the inside to ouside.

    Hi I saw your post where you put a mini spilt on your AS. How has it held up? What is the shell of the outside part made out of? Was thinking using a mini split on my AS. Also I see they made a cassette type that could go where the old one is did you consider that? thanks for your help Jim

    Saw your post about having cork flooring. I am wondering how it is wearing for you. Lots of questions i.e. planks or squares, what brand, purchase locally, and floor prep? I have a 25' Safari with carpet which is taking a beating since I have two dogs and grandkids. Texas rains have been brutal for the floor.

    Thanks for the advice! I am still working on the restoration but will be considering A/C later this year (providing all goes well!!!)
