Speaking of heat strips, we have used ours a number of times.  It works well to take the chill out of the RV on a cool or damp night.  Of coarse it's still noisy but not quite as bad as when running the a/c unit.

It's not clear from the link you posted whether that unit has an electric heat strip.  It also states that the Atwood has a CFM rating of both 330 and 360? 

The Coleman Mach 8 (15,000 BTU unit) has a CFM rating of 300, is 4 inches shorter than the Atwood, has two motors like the Atwood, and has two rather than Atwood's three fan speed settings.  It's interesting that this Atwood unit has higher 'effective' BTU ratings than the listed ratings. Sounds great if true.

In our experience with Arizona-like heat in a 2552 with the Coleman 15,000 BTU unit and dual panes windows with shades drawn....we could cool the RV down by max 20 degrees.

Thank you for posting the pictures. The comfort level is through the roof! So calm and colorful environment. Love it!

Now you got me thinking. I like the twins, my wife prefers queen bed. I think a compromise of twins with the power king slide option would work. I remember Earl said that could be done with the custom 2910 by lowering the night stand.

Just confirmed that's what we are getting. Not happy since like others we were told Michelin tires. Not crazy about Korean tires.

I replaced the valve stems and extensions on our 2552 with Borg Duallyvalve stems because I had damaged one of the original extension mounts. I drove a little too close to the edge of the road in Yosemite and something pulled the L-bracket that holds the end of the extension off of its rivets. I ordered a set of Duallyvalves from, which is Borg's web site, for $120. I had my local tire shop install the stems. Below is a picture of the stems installed on the wheel (I hope).

The tire guy had a lot of trouble getting the wheels off the axel; they were rusted on. He had to use what he called "Love". I think that involved a hammer.

These stems work much better than the old extensions with my pressure gauge/filler.

Borg also sells stems for the front wheels, if you're interested.

Thanks Ron for your info. Yep, we do live in northern Wisconsin, but looking at a AC mainly for an extended stay at our 2nd home of Arizona. Usually cool enuf in Wisconsin here.

Well, I googled for problem with solar panels too close to AC, so realize that there is no AC snorkel available to raise AC above the solar panels. So Solar has to be remounted to accommodate the footprint of Mr. AC.  Ok I can live with that. Was up on roof today measuring.  Not a show-stopper. BTW,had PC pre wired for AC. So wires and circuit breaker are already there. But may have local RV dealer install AC as the physical weight may be more than my buddies and I want to tackle.

Also googled some of more popular AC's for Motorhomes.   What do you or others think of this one?   Atwood 15025 Air Command 13,5K BTU Non-Ducted White RV AC . ...


Trust me, you want a 15,000btu a/c.  The 13,500btu units just a bit too small, I have had 13,500 units in a 20' Winnebago Minnie, 25' Lexington and now in my 27' PC (2551}.
