Hey nucleuscracker,
The 264BH swift is nearly identical to it's big sister the 26bh ... except it is roughly 1k lighter and doesn't have a diamond plate front or a roof ladder. Your 264BH DOES have an A/C unit (roof mounted) and the settings do not run through your thermostat, but directly overhead in the center of the kitchen (which is very nice for cooking inside on a hot, yet rainy summer day). Also, the A/C runs on a 30 amp connection. So if you're trying to run your A/C with a 20 amp connection with a 15/20 to 30 amp adapter, you'll likely trip your household breaker and not be able to cool much before doing so. Hopefully wherever you are camping has a 30 Amp connection. Then you can usually run any and all of your stuff without problems. We have a 264BH and LOVE IT! We will definitely be trading up when the kids get bigger, but for now ... couldn't have picked a better trailer for what we need plus: weight/cost/towability/storage space/ease of operation/layout/everything ... you're going to have a great time. Tell us all about your trip when you get back.

OH, also ... if you have any questions about the 264BH, just ask. If I can help, I'd be more than happy to. I hope you were given all of the manuals when you picked it up. If not, before you take off, make sure you get them. A little extra knowledge or reference never hurt anybody.

Got the a/c to work! Thanks for the help. It was the house system that wasn't strong enough. It pulled okay but not great yesterday, with a WDH.

Had to turn on the furnace last night as its 39 right now here in W. Yellowstone. The thermostat is kinda pointless.

I'm now seeing firsthand how a TT or anything similar would be like our boat- never done adding mod's!! Lol
