Whole House AirCon Change to Rooftops

Greetings all,
Just a thought for a question. Has anyone heard, tried or know of any change over from the whole house air to twin roof airs?

Thanks for responses,
JimT

I would think the hardest part would be getting the correct wiring all the way to the two cutouts for the new AC units. Should be possible.

I would put in a new basement unit before putting two on the roof. Someone on this forum have done that. I am happy with my basement unit.

Many of us who had the POC basement AC from RVP/Coleman have added a roof-top AC in place of the kitchen vent fan. I had my 2010 Suncruiser done at the WBGO dealer in Buda, TX and they ran a new power circuit dedicated to that location using the in ceiling ducting of the basement unit. Once completed, that additional cooling capacity enabled the basement unit to occasionally shut down, even in the TX heat.

FWIW, I think 2010 was the last model year that WBGO used the basement AC. They "claimed" it was because they needed the space for the DEF tank on their diesel pushers, but that does not explain why they stopped using them on their gassers. IMO, they stopped offering the basement units because of all the complaints they were getting from owners like me who could not keep the interior cool if the sun was shining.

On my 02 journey I added one 18500 btu roof unit in the kitchen vent hole. Used some wire mold to get from unit to bathroon washer dryer receptical and installed a 20 amp multiple switch to run either w/d or the roof ac. Did this for summer storage in Florida as I did not want to run 14 year old basement air which works perfectly. The roof ac cools the coach till outside temp exceeds 88. Saved alot on basement unit. Very little wire mold showing about one foot and then hidden in bathroom. Rkl

Also under 88 outside temp, inside stays at 77. In summer set inside to 85 and roof air maintains this temp no matter what. Rkl
