Thanks Mike
Bedroom A/C is ducted all the way up to to the rear unit, one duct.
Sometimes at night when it is cooler, we do not run the bedroom A/C at all since we do get some air in the bedroom from the rear unit

The front unit was factory installed and is ducted to the rear unit as stated before. We have a wall mounted thermastat by the closet door that runs the bedroom ac. One bad thing about the full sized unit is my overall clearance is now a whopping 13' 3". There are places we have to turn around and find a different route. Kind of a pain in the rear.

On mine the front A/C didn't add any additional height as it's the same as the living room A/C. All I can say is that it's GREAT to have and it was good to hear the kids complain that it was too COLD!

Really interesting Randy in warranty told me it was not recomended to run both A/C's un blocked on the same duct he told me it should be blocked at the bathroom so the
front A/C is only covering the bedroom and bathroom vents. I like hearing that that duct is unblocked that way it is possible to still get air to the bedroom from the rear A/C
in those times you olny need to run one unit .

Our Front A/C was factory installed but I had freezing up issues with my front unit and had to get creative and add some duct / vents to get better air flow on the front A/C and now have much better cooling up front[/QUOTE]

Rob would you mind going into more detail about your ducting mod.
Yes my ODS duct runs to the bedroom as well and the DS duct stops half way.

We don't have a 5th wheel but anything around 30' or longer will be more comfortable with two AC's. I also like the fact that with two we can turn on the bedroom AC and sit in quiet in the living room. When we go to bed we turn on the AC in the living room and can sleep without having to listen to the AC run.

Yup... We stayed at Hershey Highmeadows the infamous CG with the train. The first night I had the bedroom a/c on with fan and I never once heard the train. Next night I put the fan on auto and heard the train, needless to say it stayed on for the remainder of the trip. It was very nice to run the front a/c and have almost zero noise in the living area.

I set the front a/c to 65 degrees and the living room to about 67, and it worked perfectly for me!

I ordered our 2012 365BHS with both AC's and have to say if they would have 110v overhead in the rear bedroom, I would be adding a 3rd AC back there. Our permanant site has no shade and with the 100* temps we've had over the past 6 weeks, both units run all day long and struggle to get the inside below 84* until after 7pm. Another 13.5k AC would help alot.

Being on a permanent site you could get a small window AC to help with the cooling. Lots of people in Az to that.
