15K a/c, so far has kept the 32 BHDS cool enough here in Mi. And we have had some hot, muggy days this summer.

Will vote for 15K, but like Mike wish there was a "So far so good for where we live" choice.

Its probably your 'where applicable' part. I would have selected it, but in my Greyhawk a second unit wasn't applicable. I would have absolutely gone 50 amp, second AC if it was an option. Hence, for me its 'not applicable' however I wish I had one.

we have the 212QBW TT, the 15k unit works well here in South Carolina. We have only had the TT a few weeks now but seems great. Only complaint is it is loud, but it is a small TT.

We have 2 A/C units - they work well keeping the trailer comfortable.
Only use both units at the same time when temps are very high or initial cool down after arrival.

My only complaint has been the noise from the 2nd A/C unit - it's a Mach 8 13.5BTU Front Bedroom A/C unit.
Sounds like a jet engine when running.

Just received and installed a Fan Blade replacement kit from Coleman-Mach.
Initial test in the driveway, the kit seemed to lower the noise level significantly.
We'll see on our next trip.

For others experiencing similar noise issues from their Mach 8 A/C unit, the Coleman-Mach's Fan Blade replacement kit is Item #: 1472D5041.
Coleman-Mach was nice enough to provide us with it under warranty even though we've had our trailer for a little over 2 years and was out of the warranty period.

There's also a Mach 8 Hush Kit on the market that can be purchased and installed that is supposed to significantly reduce the noise.

That is what I did, in fact I told the dealer I wanted and AC added before I picked it up.

Having lived out in Scottsdale/Phoenix which is in the Northern Sonoran Desert I know HOT, temps in the 120's are not rare and few AC's can keep up under those conditions.


Crabman, I see you live on the Eastern Shore, so did I for about 9 years, I lived where the mouth of the James River, the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean all came together, 16 ft sea wall in front of my house, loved it and certainly hated to leave, but Texas boy had to come home...

That would be what we here call "across the bay''. I live on the north side of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, much quieter then the Hampton Roads area.

Bumped up for this nationwide heatwave which is really testing the AC units.

Hard to tell. Rarely use it. Temps don't go over 83
Usually in the 60s and 70's

Just got back from 3 days in a campground where I was in direct sun with no shade with temps in the high 90's and brutal humidity and I have to say I was VERY impressed with my AC performance...
