There are a few shots of the a/c fix that we came up with at the end. We removed a very heavy, old and most likely unsafe propane heater from the closet, leaving a gaping hole in the side of the cabinet and a round vent to the exterior. We live in NC and we camp at the beach most of the time, in the middle of summer, when the temps are in the 90's and the humidity is almost as high as the temp. So, an a/c is a MUST have item. This is the solution that we came up with. It is NOT ideal, and it works as well as it does only because the Hubster is quite mechanically inclined, and he has a good working knowledge of what he's dealing with. I wouldn't recommend doing an a/c install this way. There is still a fair amount of heat gain from the back of the unit, and we are aware that it isn't the best way to do an a/c install. BUT, it is working for now, for us, and that's all that counts.
So, with no further ado - here's the photos!!
|Here's the potty closet door! I used black vinyl to label it with a "moon" like an outhouse...hahaha. I cut it where the door folds in half. No doubt what's in the closet now!!|
|The view from the door of the dinette. Lots of seating room, big table, plenty of storage beneath the benches. You can also see the electric fridge from this view.|
|Fridge, with storage for pots and pans beneath.|
|Pots and pans storage. I am so thrilled with the amount of storage this little beauty has.|
|Sliding access panel doors beneath the gaucho.|
|Top of the unit. A piece of plywood sits above the supports in the cabinet to partition the a/c from the closet.|
|Our happy little camper!!!|
