Second A/C

Has anyone added a second A/C to a 2017 Jayco Jay feather BH25? Not very happy with the 15000BTU unit I have now. About the coolest it will get is ~75Deg when outside is in the upper 90's. The unit seems to be operating correctly, it just too hot is south Louisiana,

This is what I got back from Jayco:




Please see attached for the print requested. A 2nd AC wasn’t an option with this model and I would advise against installing one. So the duct work wouldn’t be present to connect the new AC nor would there be wires ran. Also, the load center wouldn’t be able to handle 2 ACs. Also, this would void the warranty of your unit.


So as it stands now we may not be able to camp in the heat of the summer in south Louisiana

I think you may be able to improve the performance of your currrent set up. I would look at blocking skylights and vents, this has helped ours. Look for other areas where extra insulation could be added to maximize your current unit. You won't equal the performance of a second unit but it should be better than where you are now.

Any way to use a portable unit, run the vent out a window?

This is with all the tricks I can find, all shades down, re-taped all seams in A/C system with foil tape. But leaving the camper all closed up with no one there for most of a day it still does not get very cool. Had a RV repair guy look at it , said it's pulling correct amps. Think my only option is replace unit on my self,(better/new unit)or a second unit. Have a rough quote of $1800 to install second unit. Going to wait and see. I need to bring it in for warrantee work and will have them check it again.
