I think it can be done, but it is probably not cheap....I came across this .pdf -- looks like you need a new control board and a new plenum cover

Thats a good link. The hardest part would probably be fishing a stat wire to the a/c unit. But not imposable.

It would have to be an investigation process to see if there is a path in the ceiling starting at the a/c pulling down the inside cover. possable electritian fish tape. You might want to seek the advice of an electritian? I know they have wire molding products that arn't to bad looking as a last resort.

Pulling wires through the ceiling means you have to fish the wires through the tightly framed trusses, and then there's the insulation to get snagged into, not to mention other wire bundles. As stated, the wire molding option is a clean, easy, and fast solution.

A couple of years ago I had my roof completely off down to the trusses (major moisture issue..., resolved) and got a good look at the construction, IMO not very conducive for fishing wire through "after the fact".

ps: Did the stat mod as well (Hunter) , nice to have a plus/minus 1 degree heat and A/C inside environment control!

I installed a Hunter thermostat from Lowes and it is great. Kept the trailer at a constant temperature this past weekend.
