I have decided to add a 2nd a/c unit to my pp34ck the one it came with is OK as long as it is below 85 if it gets any warmer it runs and cycles non-stopand with the aggravating remote doesn't help any...So I am going to addanother a/c. What do you guys recommend?And does it increase the exterior height by much? I hope to get one by my next trip orby next season.

RJ, I would get a low profile 15k unit. The 15k will not cost you much more than a 13.5k and will not have to work as hard. Our unit came with a 15k remote unit in the living area and we had so many issues with it they finally put it on a wall thermostat. The front AC unit is a remote but seems to be doing fine (knocking on wood).

I don't know if they have changed the low profiles or not. A few years ago I wanted to change out the unit on our HH to help with the exterior height. Dealer didn't recommend it. He claimed the low profile units were prone to frosting up. Might be something to check out.

I was leaning toward the low profile 15k.....Now I just got to find a good deal on one. Is one brand better or are they all about the same??

Our bedroom unit is not a low profile and I know it makes me nervous. I measured with the trailer hooked up and to the top of the unit we are at 13' 4". I know on our way back from this years Texas Rally we had to go around a bridge in Tyler, Tx that was 13' 6", I just did not want to chance knocking the front unit off. Now I knew about this bridge in advance because we saw it when we went to town one day, if we had not I would have had no other choice but to try and make it. Talk about the pucker factor..............

I have 2 a/c units both are 15k, and I am 13"4' tall, never been a problem, but I do try to stay on the main highway...both my a/c units are ducted, I did not want the bedroom a/c to blow down on the bed, we usually run both a/c units at the same time, works good for us, never had a problem, and the temp stays pretty consistant thru out our unit, I too was advised against the low profile, and I decided against it because it couldn't be ducted into the factory ducts....the 2nd a/c in a PP makes a huge difference you will find it money well spent

Is it better to have ducted? I would prefer cold air blowing on bed (I am a very hot nature person) thats why my power bill is $300 in summer I like to be cool....Where is the best place to get a deal on one?
