Should we get the 2nd air conditioner in bedroom?

We are looking to order a 2014 Jay Flight 28 BHBE (33.3' long). Adding a second a/c unit in the bedroom is a $1000 option and we are trying to decide if it is worth it. The bedroom in the 28 BHBE is completely walled off with the door being right next to the main entry door of the TT. We will use the TT for week-long vacations and weekend getaways. We are planning a trip to Ft Wilderness Disney in the next year or two.

Thx!
Adina

We have our 36bhds set up on a seasonal site in hot and humid N.C. with no shade and the 1 unit has been more than enough.

Adding a 2nd AC will or should push you into a 50 amp service. RV parks will charge you a bit more for 50 amp. If you run on a generator, that will also run your price of a capable generator to run 2 AC's way up.

Turn the fan on manual and let it circulate throughout the night while sleeping if u find it to hot.

I guess I'll be the "odd man out" and say I personally would order it.

It will cost you more to have it added later if you find that you "do" need it. It will increase resale/trade-in value. You don't have to use 50 amp at a campground if you don't need both a/c's, get a 30-50 adapter. When you spread the cost out over the length of ownership it is actually not that expensive.

Another vote for 'yes' here. I have a 2011 32BHDS and the single 15k unit has a hard time keeping up in the Texas summers, especially when there is no shade. I've been thinking of adding a second unit myself for this exact reason. If I were buying today, I would be getting the same floorplan, but the Eagle version just so that I could get the additional A/C.

As Grumpy said above, you don't have to use it if you don't need it, but you can't use it if you don't have it.

I need to add we have a 15,000 BTU unit with artic insulation package. We keep the thermostat set between 70-75 and even on the hottest days my family complains about being too cold. We also sleep with a extra layer of cover on the beds. After the sun goes down the unit only cycles on/off just a few time during the night.

Curious as to what a hot day is for you.

I got some kind of upgraded insulation package, but I don't believe the Arctic package was available when I got my trailer. If it was, I would have jumped on it!

90-100+ degree days with high humidity is normal here in the Caralina's in the summer.
