Adding a third AC

Does anyone know if I can add a third AC to my NorthPoint 379DBFS? The bunk room and rear bathroom are unbearably hot for kids/guests.

It's not on the option list so probably not wired for it.

Third 15,000-BTU A/C (low-profile) in living room (385THWS, 383FKWS, 381FLWS, 387RDFS)

Magnolia Tom mounted a 3rd a/c unit in his NP 377. It "might" be doable, but you'd have to see what's up there.

Thanks. Didn’t think about looking there. I found a spot labeled optional 3rd AC on breaker panel but now that I think about it, it’s probably the same panel in most others.

Yep. If you have a vent, you ďmayĒ be able to add a third AC. Itíll depend on whether you have space in the breaker box (or can rewire to make space), whether youíre able to run the power and thermostat wires, and whether your confident in your abilities to take on the job. Itís one thing to add an ac thatís already prewired and pre-plumbed for it. Itís another thing when itís not. Itís not that difficult but Iíd say itís for more experienced DIY people. Good luck! Oh yeah, if you do it, make sure you do a write up with pics....otherwise it didnít happen

I was told by JAYCO when I asked about adding 3rd AC to my 383FKWS, that if the breaker is in the panel for optional 3rd AC, then the RV is wired for the 3rd AC. Dealer, says needs obviously another thermostat and mounting kit...just quoted me $1300 for the AC, $200 for thermostat, and $140 something for install kit, plus labor - $1950 total ... will definitely get another quote from another dealer, but Acs are short supply now days....at least the Coleman/Mach 8 that is on the RV now...

Is there a wire that is not connected? If so then it is probably pre-wired.

I will check when it gets back from being serviced. The “tech” told my service contact the unit was not pre-wired. I may get another opinion based on some other comment as we.

All you need to do is pull the trim ring from the ceiling vent to see if the wiring is there.
