A/C Swift 145 RB

I recently purchased a Swift 145 RB and haven't had it long enough to use in the summer.

The A/C that comes with this trailer sure seems small, but I'm told it does a good job of keeping the trailer cool.

For those of you with a Swift, are you pleased with the A/C's ability to cool your trailer?

Congrats on the new TT.

I have the 154BH with 5000 BTU wall unit. It has performed well on days in the 90s.

I have a 184BH (2013 MODEL) It does a fairly decent job in the summer. We had one trip at Cedar Hill State Park with no shade and it was 110 outside. Unbearable outside. 85 inside. Not as cool as you want, but then again.. you're camping! It ran on high constantly.

I went out to check on my 184BH tonight (Supposed to freeze here in North Texas) I noticed that my seat cushion (driver's side dinette) was wet underneath vinyl side against the plywood. This is my first RV. In the center of the seat. There appear to be no leaks. Could it be condensation? Very strange.

honeymooner = Check to make sure your dinette window (below the A/C) was caulked across the top and down the sides.

I think a previous post noted the need for a drawer and I couldn't agree more. Likewise, my 145 RB's closet is very small and didn't really appear to offer much for hanging clothes.

So, here are a couple of modifications I recently made.

Threebutchers,

thanks for the reply. I was able to go and look for leaks while a steady rain was occurring. Still dont know the exact source of the leak but I am betting on it being the front window. Will try to attach pics when I figure out what I am doing wrong.

Excellent work!!!....you should start a thread dedicated to your mods that can be found easier through searches.

Thanks for the compliment. I just finished building and installing a medicine cabinet. I'll post up photos soon.

That's another item I wish they had provided. It was unhandy for us not having one.
