Could Atwood Air Command Rooftop RV Air Conditioner w Heat Pump Be Added to Airstream Trailer

Question:

I want to add another a/c unit in the bedroom of my 2007 airstream Classic, where the fantastic fan is now, I have a 30amp service, and I don’t think I want to upgrade to a 50amp service because of the difficulty of running the wires. That being said I also don’t know what to do about the condensate line. If I can power up the unit from the outside, I can use the extra plug in the service box that most RV parks provide. What would be the best A/C unit for this application. Please advise. Thanks

It's hard to say if you'd be okay with your current power situation to add an AC unit like the part # AT15026-21 but I can tell you that it draws 13.3 amps, 4,830 watts at startup, and 1,530 watts running. You'd have to compare that to what your setup is currently drawing. This will fit the 14 inch hole your Fan-Tastic roof vent fit.

There isn't an external power connector for the vent though.

Question:

The smaller unit would work fine for my application. But what is the difference between a heat pump and a non heat pump? And which one would be more energy efficient? I surly don’t need heat as we travel mostly in the spring, summer and fall in south Texas. Also I could probably make more informed decision if could see a manual for this unit showing breakdown and some install instructions.

The smaller Atwood AC unit is the part # AT15025-21 which has a BTU rating of 13,500.

A heat pump is basically a way to get a small amount of warmer air out of the system so that you wouldn't have to fire up a furnace. Sounds like it's not something you'd need though. The # AT15025-21 does not have a heat pump so you wouldn't need to worry about it. I am going to send you a link to a page that has the manual in a second message.

The portion of the unit that installs on the interior of the RV measures 20” long by 20” wide, and comes down about 2.5” from the ceiling.
