Adding Bedroom AC in 2013 Pinnacle 38FLFS

Wanting to add the second air conditioning unit (bedroom) to a 2013 Pinnacle 38FLFS. Has 50 amp service and breaker in place. Removed trim ring on bedroom vent and found 110VAC wiring, brown thermostat wire, and taped-off access to air duct system. Questions: (1) Is there a schematic wiring diagram available for these 5'ers? (2) Anyone know where I might find the other end of the thermostat wire (assume in bedroom wall somewhere) ? (3) Any hints from someone who has self-installed the second A/C unit in a similar trailer? Thanks in advance!

2013 38FLFS
2013 RAM 3500 dually
Lovin' life!

I put a second ac in the bedroom of our 14 eagle the other end of the t-stat wire was taped to the bedroom light switch wires. Just unscrew the switch and pull it out a little should be there, if not have your dealer call jayco. If you have a contoured ceiling the stock bolts won't be long enought to start I used threaded rod to start and then replaced them with the bolts that come with the ac. Good luck.

05 duramax - Thanks for the info. Mine is likely in the same spot, but trailer is not here so I cannot check right now. Which A/C unit did you choose and why?

On my 365 the brown wire was located in the closet by the washer dryer connections.

I got the Colman Mach 13500 low profile with the chill grill. It was the same brand that came with the camper and it is only 9" high to help with the overall height.

I have the same Pinnacle with factory A/C in the bedroom. The thermostat is on the wall between bathroom and bedroom. About 48" off floor and 12" left of the bedroom doorway.

On my Eagle Premier it is by the front closet and where the washer and dryer goes.
