JR,

You are correct, your wife isn't! LOL

I also only use the 2nd hp to quick cool or in the heat of the day.

The one advantage of basement airs is, they are not subject to the hot sun. they draw intake air from under the coach which tends to be a bit cooler.

Liberty Coach still comes with the cruisair. That would make over 30 straight years unless they stopped between then and now.

I got a couple of estimates to have dual basement airs installed and it will cost more than roof airs, but the roofline will be clean.
(disclaimer) I have no financial intrest in the Badame Refrigeration Co. Nicks price was much lower than the other prices, so guess who is going to do it? I'll keep you posted on the results

Here are a couple of links.  I can't find prices but I know that Cruisairs have always been expensive.  They do have several options for the inside air handlers.

All of these mini-splits did not exist when I was doing my bus so I settled for Duotherm basement air.

Note the spelling of Cruisair when you go searching - took me a while to figure it out.
