Get all the gear details, more of our solar AC thoughts and research on our site here: http://www.gonewiththewynns.com/off-grid-solar-rv-air-conditioning
We had a simple question: Is it possible to power an Air Conditioner off solar when living off the grid? With our RV we decided to do a temporary wiring swap and test run our AC to see if running an air conditioner off our solar, battery and inverter is realistic or not.
The RV air conditioning units that have been around for years are made in such a way that they really want to perform for a long time but with all those years and, like in our case many different owners, maintenance was not performed like it should have been and we were having issues with our AC not cooling enough. I made this Vid to show you want I found on mine and although I didn't Capture it on Video, it made the temperature drop on very similiar days from a pleasant 75 degrees after running...
Learn about Dometic's diverse range of rooftop air conditioning systems
for RVs, including the lightweight and newly redesigned Brisk II and the
low-profile Penguin II. The super quiet High Performance (HP) system is
ideal for ducted return systems, and for smaller vehicles with rounded
roofs, check out the Cool Cat which installs vertically into a wall
instead of on the roof.
With high costs to replace and hire someone to maintain your RV's rooftop AC unit, it's wise to keep it clean and inspected yourself. If you're comfortable on your roof than you can probably tackle the task yourself. Follow along as I show you how I clean and maintain mine.

This video is an update about the air conditioner in the van. We took out the 6000 BTU window unit and put in a 14000 BTU portable unit and what a difference! See more at http://rvroadtrip.us/library/van_airconditioner_portable.php
I installed a 12,000 BTU mini split on my RV. I was spending way to much on propane for heat as well as the electric bill in cooling I decided to change that and my electric bill is lower and i am able to go 3 to 4 months with out filling up on propane and the noise level inside the coach with the RV AC very loud and the new mini split you cant even tell its running

It's easier to install an air conditioning unit where there already was one, but what about when you'd like to add one where there isn't already a hole in the roof. Learn how to cut a hole in your RV roof to install an AC unit, vent or sky light.

How to Remove a Camper Roof Vent and Install an RV Air Conditioner
This video shows how to remove a standard roof vent, and then install a new 2014 Dometic Brisk Air II 13,500 BTU A/C unit.
The camper shown is a 2012 Jayco model 1207 pop up.
Here's a recent Craigslist score, (3) 12v swamp coolers for $100, Frankensteined into 2 working 12v evaporative coolers for unlimited cooling using my 12v solar panel set up. Now I don't have to worry about gas, or gas fumes from noisy generators. Perfect for Southwest dry camping,
Update on my Chinese 3250 watt portable generator. I've had this genny for just over 2 years now, with no problems other than a malfunctioning oil level sensor. Those sensors almost always fail; my solution is to just unplug the connector to the sensor. That sensor is just a gimmick anyway, and is no substitute for checking the oil every time you use the genny.
This specific generator is NLA as this specific brand name. But that's ok because you can still get the exact same generator with ...
Our Solar Air conditioner setup has been working solidly for about a month now. We avg a 15' temperature difference nearly every time we use it. We have also been able to charge our battery bank every time we run it as well! Here are our thoughts, and tips for any one looking to run an AC in a camper off solar.
