Bruce:

There is an entire line of air-conditioners used to cool... Dog houses! ThermAssure® is one brand and Climate Right® is another. They come in different capacities. They are very small in size. I found out about them when I was studying up on building a teardrop trailer. Many teardroppers are effectively using them to cool their trailers.

Just one more option to consider for a small area.

I know a lot of folks here never really liked the Carrier lo-pro units due to the fan on top that can hook trees.

Advent doesn't make a lo-pro unit, at least not yet.

         Now, that's an interesting option that I'd never known about!  Thanks for those links, Dr. Steve.  I can see a few challenges with ducting condenser air (remember, I have no "bays" and precious little underfloor area) but the units are pretty small and the power requirements are tiny.  With a "power sharing" inverter (which would really only be needed to smooth out startup power loads), you could run a couple of these off a 15amp socket and a 12/3 power extension cord if a bigger power supply weren't available.  On the other hand, even two of them would be only about 5k BTU at a cost of over $1000 but for small areas (bedroom???) with "packaging area" available, these might be very advantageous.

Hi Gerry,

  Your Quote: "Somehow my thread on roof top AC turned into a Honda generator discussion?"

My apologies for appearing to hijack your thread.  I guess my thoughts were too far removed from the subject of placement and use of air conditioners. 

If I knew how to remove the posts, I would.  Perhaps you or someone else can do that.

Garhawk: Not a problem. I wondered if somehow 2 threads got crossed by the digital powers that be. I would love to "talk" about Honda generators also, but in a different thread please. My threads usually get about 2 answers and this one is over 34 so I'm extremely pleased people are giving of themselves. Thanks to all.

Latest AC update: Went to an RV dealer parts dept. today and asked about Dometic 15K heat pump AC's. Seems there is still one listed, but it has to be ducted, and of course I need a non-ducted one which only seems to exist in the 13.5K size. They were unable to answer any questions, just order a part number for xxxx$. So it maybe cooling only 15K and no heat pump for me. Gerry H
