Onetype, Howdy;

If I were only about 40 years younger ...

You mentioned that you sometimes travel to outlying parts of your State to do your job.
In those instances do you plan to stay at an RV Park or on site and do what is referred
to as Boondocking? Some RV Parks won't let you stay unless you are fully contained and
some will. Depends on the owner's whim. If you choose to Boondock then you will find
having 12vdc a very handy thing to have already installed. It's also comforting to be able
to have lights and some essentials powered when the power goes off due to Mother Nature.

I should have phrased that better, we do work in other big cities not exactly rural areas. I live in Austin, Tx but we Have jobsites going all over South Tx. When doing out of town work I will just park the CT at the jobsite. I do commercial electrical work so we have priority most of the time on site. Obviously power wouldnt be an issue. I will use external jugs to collect the grey water when needed.

Ill be saving up for a decent genset at some point too.

Onetype, Howdy;

Wasn't your fault, I just didn't have much to work with, that's all
Kinda been the story of most of my life ... :lol:

Pop always said that if I didn't have so much turned under for feet and so much
turned out for ears I'd have grown to be a taller fella instead of only being 6' tall.

Well, I re-routed the t-stat from the window unit to about halfway up the wall the other day. I wanted to get the fan off the floor and mount it on the wall since I prefer a fan on me when I sleep. Seemed to work great, the temp displayed on the unit is much more relative to the indoor temp that my thermometer shows. Today is a pretty hot day (still in the 90's though) and the unit has pretty much been running all day but it doesn't seem to be able to keep up or its not able to circulate around enough. Granted this is the hottest part of the day but I'm kinda worried when summer is full on and its in the 100's. I was hoping to not have to have a fan circulating but I may be unable to avoid it. I haven't been able to paint the roof yet because its been raining so much but I do plan on putting a couple coats of Henry 587 up there at some point. Anyway I guess I can't really tell yet if its just undersized or just a circulation issue.

I'm going to have to setup a surround sound to hear the tv over all these fans :lol: .

Most wall thermostats are mounted at 5' height. I'm sure you have noticed this being in the business you are in.
I can't tell from the pic., is the AC mounted high or low?
