Started first mini-split in 45xle today. very impressive. With the help of Mci8-tintent. The 12,000btu unit dropped the coach from 95 to low 70's in less than 90 minutes. I have two more units 9,000 btu each to use as zone support. I have had them for some time but have not had time to do final pump down and fire up until today. Pleasant surprise and reinforcement of decision I made to go this course.  The way they start and ramp up to speed is a little differant.  Thanks to all who helped with personal experience and info.

I was doing some work on the bus today and fired up the mini splits.  I though about how nice and quiet they were and how no condensattion had to. Run down from the roof.  It was hot and humid today but a nice 70 degrees on board.

Cool! Well I am gonna try and be the driver that comes up Friday night and hauls a semi-pro football team for Shawn to O'Fallon on Saturday and maybe come by Sunday about 11-1 before deadheading to S. MS for a Monday AM rte back to Batesville, MS Job Corp.

SO if nothing changes I may be by.

Of course I was supposed to be leaving for PCB, FL in the AM for a week too, but dad talked me into letting another driver do it so I could be around here "just in case" since he and mom are off for an 8 day tour with a youth group they've been carrying for 7 yrs now called the CIA ~ Christians In Action. They travel to different towns and put on musical performances @ churches, hospitals, nursing homes etc in exchange for meals or boarding. (it's a pretty cool deal I think and mom & dad enjoy taking them every year!)

Bob, where did you mount these? In bays? My 01 Prevost has the Cruiseairs (3) under drivers feet behind bumper. If they wont take a charge, I might have to go after other options.

Thanks,
Glen

I put one in cabinet above driver. front cabinet across bus.. They must have air intake and room for outlet- they are basic cabinet themselves. The other mid ship will disguised as part of cabinet. and other same in bedroom. Mounted about 60 inches off floor. Duwayne( Mci8 tintent) has had his built in for four or 5 years. Pictures soon. One of the 9,000 is maintaining today in the 90's at 70 degrees inside.           After thought they are probably concerned about condensation about installing in cabinet. I'm building cabinets around mine. with units being lowest point

I would also LOVE to see some pictures of both the install in the cargo bay or wherever, and the inside part.

Thanks in advance!

Robert as they say "inquiring mines want to know".  All of us in the design stage want to know how to make these systems work and look good.
