Yes…I can’t seem to post photos but I’m pushing air past the condenser with a series of fans pulling air up the left side through (6) 1” pipes and down the right side with (6) 1” pipes.
Sorry…I haven’t been monitoring the website. I did a test a have to report that the cooling isn’t sufficient for my needs. I’m venting with a series of (5) 1” pipes that I added on the left and right sides of the galley venting down through the cabin an out the floor. I’ll try to post a photo or two. The blue is actually my inverter…the air con is on the lower right.
I think you would be more prone to drips or sags in your epoxy and/or varnish in areas where you’ve created a hole in an otherwise smooth surface.
Good luck with your build!
Finally went out to measure mine. 27 1/2” from the bottom rear of the trailer. Standard trailer loaded and ready for a trip with nothing on the roof racks. Trailex trailer with no ICC but I have an aluminum storage box on the tongue. Tongue weight is 98 lbs and total trailer is about 1,000. Photo posted separately.
After a couple hot days last summer I decided my winter project would be to add air conditioning to my teardrop. I found a small unit (1,580 btu) manufactured by Rigid HVAC Co. near Hong Kong. The model is DV1910E-AC and it runs great on my 12 volt electrical system. It is small enough to fit in one of the kitchen module compartments and has 1 1/2” pvc pipe supply and return “ductwork” into the cabin. A series of 12 small pipes extending to the bottom of the camper provide supply and exhaust ventilation to the kitchen along with supplemental fans. Temperature and fan speed are controlled by a thermostat and PWM in the cabin. While it does provide cooling, I haven’t been able to test it thoroughly due to our current cold weather. I’ll post a few photos separately.
I can’t answer the ICC varnish question but I used a little more than a quart for six coats on the teardrop. Interlux Schooner Gold thinned with 333 Brushing Liquid.
I used an AIMS power supply with a 100 Ah lifepo4 battery. I also have a small folding 3 panel solar array and charger (Amazon) that connect to the power supply. It all works fine but I rarely use the solar panels.
Hi southcitystl…no glass, just resin on the bulkhead. There is glass tape on the joint below the battery box as recommended in the book.
It is hard to tell what’s going on but the galley flat looks like it might be too close to the bottom of the camper. I’m happy to send a link to my construction photo gallery if you can send an email address. I don’t recall having a similar problem…but I can take some close up photos or dimensions of the completed camper in that area if it helps.
We will be camping at Moraine View State Recreation Area near Bloomington, Illinois from Sunday til Tuesday. Site #015 Area P.
Completed the teardrop last spring and added tandem kayak this spring.
