Anyone install a second A/C unit themselves?

Double Slide SHOULD equal double Air Conditioners! Sadly, our 2008 31BHDS does NOT. And we need it. We stay in Arizona hot desert w/ no shade.

Has anyone done an install of a second unit themselves, or had one done? Do you know if this rig is pre-stubbed/pre-wired on the roof for one?
If so, where?
Would the 2nd one be ducted like the original, or non-ducted?

Thanks!

If it had the option for a 2nd unit and it is a 50 amp unit it is probably pre-wired. Usually it would replace the roof vent in the bedroom. Pull the trim ring and see if the wiring is there.

Best bet would to send your Vin# to JAYCO and ask them about ducting.

Ah! Didn't think about that... that would be great, as I have other questions on the rig. It's new to us, and came with no info. Thanks!

This brochure from the jayco site on the 2008 models lists 2nd ac as an option only on the park model trailers. I would say that means you have 30 amp service and no prewiring for 2nd ac.

Update!

In case anyone ever wondered...we brought a window A/C unit and stand with us but never ended up needing it!!

Our trailer stayed COLD the entire summer last year! We have the upgraded, larger A/C (15k BTU), insulation and the enclosed belly. Also, I added heavy thermal drapes and used Reflectix inside the cabinets, against the outer walls...and on the windows, skylights, and any other outer walls. We got SO cold, we had to turn it down at night!!

Of course, we kept the A/C unit down in the hold; just in case. You know Murphy's Law. If we take it home, we'd need it.
