Unusual A/C install

Hi Folks, Some of you may remember I was talking about installing a roof A/C on my camper before I went on my cross country trip. Turns out I didn't want to spend the money on something I may not use often. Needless to say that was a mistake as it gets pretty darn hot in the southwest in September. Well, this winter , while it was in storage , I devised an idea to use my window A/C without it looking too redneckish. I took out the small upper front bunk window, made the opening larger and re-framed it.Then, I built a plywood box and fastened it in the corner. It's anchored to the ceiling rafters and 2 walls. The box is made to exhaust the hot air out the center and draw cool air in the sides. I found a metal Louvered grill that I adapted to work. I also had to run a new outlet to that area wired off my existing 20 amp breaker that was intended for the roof air. I also bought a drain kit for the A/C and run the tubing down the vertical chase they used for my shower plumbing, straight down through the floor to outside. it all works well and I can't wait to try it out in the summer heat. I think it looks almost OEM.

Wow, that does look "cool"!

By having the AC hang inside the camper, yes it has less redneck appearance to it.

It came out really well. Thanks for sharing your handy work. Good Job!
