That way, the AC unit takes up no space in the trailer and is out of the way when you don't want to use it.
Ever had an ice-up problem due to restricted air through the evaporator??
Your set up interests me for an add-on for a TD not built for A/C.
hate to pay the price of a Pet Cool
I bought the AC unit at Lowes. It had a flat front/top air outlet that I covered with a piece of plastic, which I cut a hole in, and added a piece of molded 4" PVC pipe as a duct. Attached to it is a 4" dryer hose. All of the plastic pieces were made out of 4" PVC pipe.
Thru experimenting, I learned you can bake PVC pipe in the oven at 250 degrees for 10 minutes and then shape it any way you want while it is still hot. (Maybe this should be in the cooking section )
Then I cut a hole in the floor of the trailer and built a wood plenum up the back of the galley wall to an air outlet into the trailer. The dryer hose plugs into the hole with another piece of formed PVC pipe, and when not in use, there is a plug to close the hole.
I'll try to get some more pictures.
