I haven't spent any time in the loft but my kids haven't complained. We did have to adjust the vent when the heat pump was running so a little less heat was blowing in them.

klassic,

During our evaluation of various units, we did focus on the loft and air circulation. With the window, the ceiling A/C vent and the crank-up ceiling vent we thought it would be a workable situation. In addition, you could, if necessary, put a small portable fan put there and clamp it to the railing. There is no fan in the crank-up vent and Jayco will not install one. If added aftermarket you would need to fish a wired over to it for power.

Just my opinion. Cheers

This past weekend, my daughter did say she was a little hot up there with the heat pump running. We closed the vent and opened up the ceiling vent and she never complained again.

I may have to stop by and take a look at all your handy work on your rig in the near future.

I have threatened to do the same with BigJohnD, as well.

Thanks for sharing and look forward to meeting a fellow Texas camper.

Your parallam block must have some weight to it.

It's not too heavy. Prob 5-6 pounds. The block wasn't that heavy until I added the two layers of 1 1/8" plywood.

Magnolia Tom - My JT Strong-arms arrived on Thursday. Any words of wisdom or advice before I tackle that project?
