Actually, what I am strongly considering is trying to talk Jayco into NOT installing any A/Cs and thermostats (and credit me for them) then putting a couple of Coleman 15k heat pumps on top and Coleman digital thermostats inside. As far as I can tell, the thermostat wiring running from the A/C locations to the thermostats is four conductor (12v+, 12v-, compressor, high fan, and low fan). Coleman heat pumps also need a reversing valve lead between the heat pump and the thermostat (they refer to it as "heat pump"). If there isn't a whole lot of difference between low and high speed, I could "steal" the low fan lead to use for the reversing valve. To make sure some "helpful" person (or me before I fully wake up) doesn't come along and switch the fan speed from high to low, thus shutting off the fan, I would run a jumper from the low speed terminal in the thermostat to the high speed terminal.

Using the low speed fan wire would save me the hassle of trying to fish a new thermostat wire through the ceiling and down the wall (which would be fairly easy in the bedroom if the thermostat is on the wall between the bedroom and the bathroom; long story why) but a total bugger from the kitchen to the hall thermostat.

I could use the old thermostat cable to pull the new one from the kitchen to the hall wall but even if the hole at the top of the hall wall was fairly generous, the cable would probably hang up there. I could cut a hole in the ceiling in the medicine cabinet and probably reach the hole where the cable dives into the hall wall without too much trouble (more like agony with my bum shoulder but then using it is good for it) and help guide it down with my hand. Afterward, putting up a panel the same size as the inside of the medicine cabinet over the hole would yield an invisible patch. But if there isn't much to be gained in air speed or noise reduction, why bother with all that?

So the vents on the actual unit in the ceiling can be closed so the other ceiling vents are working?

Assuming the TT has ductwork (which the 330RLTS does), yes. The vents on the actual unit are intended to be used for quick cool down when first turning the A/C on in a hot room but, as others have mentioned, sometimes using them at all times seems to work better in some RVs

When it is really hot outside - like in the 90s - and folks are coming in and out a lot - I usually have to keep the quick cools open to keep up. At night I can close them and it runs at about 1/3 of the noise and pumps plenty of air back to the bedroom - which I like.

Forgive my ignorance, but what are "the quick cools"?

Our air conditioners are always on low. It is a lot quieter that way. If the main one can't keep up we just turn on the front ac.

Even on low they make some noise so when we go to bed we turn off the front one and it is easier to sleep. They are both connected as far as ducts go so the main one will still cool the bedroom.

The quick cools are just three sliding lovers on the main AC unit. When you open them, most of the air blows out of main grill. When you slide them closed, it pushes more air out the ducted vents. You can close one, two, or all three of them. The AC pushes more air and cools better when they are open - thus "quick cool" name - it just produces more nose when they are open.

Thank you for that explanation.

"Three sliding lovers" "produces more nose"?

Sorry! Couldn't let straight lines like that just lie there.

Maybe you should ask him if he has a "thick" skin first.:hihi:
