Mc-8 Driver air
« on: February 16, 2013, 07:59:21 AM »
Do any of you know the BTU capacity of just the driver air evaporator on the MC-8. I know this has been talked about but I can't find what it's rated at. I have a 15000 BTU belly air I am thinking about tying into that evaporator. Just thinking out loud

Yup, I wish I could remember too...

Used to be some engineers here that knew these things right off the top of their heads and would whip it up on a napkin for us...

Those daze are behind us now.

I'll try to reach out.

happy coaching!

or, we could have waited for luvrbus...

 ;D

For the AC experts, if one were to mount the equipment in the spare tire compartment below and run it on ac power, how small might you go with a compressor and condenser to match up to that evaporator for busnut use?
