« on: December 23, 2012, 06:37:47 PM »
looking to replace my campers ac unit which does not work.
obviosuly needs to be ac single phase, low amperage as it may be workiing off my trucks inverter. needs to be wall mount because my roof can not handle the weight. current dimensions are 20.5" width and 15.75" height. any ideas?

also an ac/lp fridge/freezer. will post dimension when I have them.

I use a small window AC in our TC. 5000btu, draws 8 amps. Be sure to do the math on your battery size and inverter size, you don't want to see any smoke.

You do NOT want to try and run an AC air conditioner on 12 DC, your 8A DC translates into 88.3 amps AC a true batter killer in short order. A small generator is a necessity if you want AC.
