Adding second air 375bhfs

Currently have unit at dealer for repairs. Working on adding second air. Waiting on an answer if it can be ducted or even if there is existing wiring there. I know the unit has optional 3 air from. Factory. Wondering about what unit to use for that area. I'm thinking about a slimline 13k unit. Only because I have a 4k generator and if I dry camp, I know I'd have some air using some other things. I'm not sure about the noise factor or anythig else for that matter. Any suggestions or opinions of what would be best?

How did you fare out with the second ac unit and what size did you go with? Was the ducting and thermostat wire there? I assume you added it to the bedroom?

I went with the low profile newest mach 13,500 Btu . Only because if I end up in dry for awhile, I shouldn't have any issues with the Honda's handling that and something more. But actually it's been in the 80's some days and we haven't had any issues cooling the unit through out like we did last year. So far, so good, even in the rear bunk area. As for the wiring, all was already there from the factory according to the installer. Hooks in with the ducting already there. Yes, installed in the front bedroom. Just had to locate the wires and install the unit and it's working great.

That's awesome! I bet tying into the ducting really boosted/helped the main unit cool the living room and bunk room. I assume you checked if the air was coming to the bunk room from the bedroom ac by turning off the living room ac? Was still cool by then if so?

Definitely, also doesn't run non stop like before and we can actually set it to 73 and it reaches that. I don't know but the front bedroom really got warm and stuffy before installing the second. And that rear bunk is doing fine so far without adding one in there. So keeping the fingers crossed..
