Thanks for all of the idea's y'all,
I'm going to look into the ceramic tint for the front windshield,
on a bright sunny day it often feels like I'm inside a terrarium,


When I get to Michigan, where I'll have a place to do some work,
I will also look into some duct board for the generator fan compartment,


but the best idea yet came from reading the archives of the WOG,
since I'm currently in Dayton headed to Michigan,


Shipshewana isn't that far out of the way,


tomorrow morning I'm going to call Leon

and see if he has time to give me a look over!


I'll keep you posted if there's anything of interest that comes out of that.

Dont expect Leon to answer his phone. If you leave a message he will call you back.

Hey Hans,
I know this thread is a bit old, was wondering if you came up with anything? I was also going to throw in my 2 cents. So one thing that has a big effect going down the road is that the bird creates an immense vacuum on the vehicle as it moves down the road. Therefore pulling your conditioned air out as you are moving down the road. I have learned this from my other bus manual (MCI). It says that if you have more than 8 square inches of leakage area it’s enough to nuetralize the effect of the air conditioning system while traveling down the road. And on my MCI its a 10 ton capacity system. So I would be looking for spots where the air could be leaking out. The real way to check would be a smoke test, where you pressurize the inside with a large fan and they add smoke to it to see where you have leaks. Most larger rv shops have the ability to do this, they use it to find water leaks.

Thanks for your input Jeff and friends,
I had to bypass Shipshewana due to time limitations and family obligations,
I do intend to stop and see Leon on the way south,

I'm currently in northern Michigan and haven't needed much air conditioning.

I did some more looking around at my three ac units
and noticed that the insulation under the sheet metal panel
that seperates the inside from the outside air
was only a thin 3/8 piece of fiber and foil,

so I picked up a roll of reflectixs

and lined the plastic covers with several sheets of it,
making sure none of it blocked the air flow over the condensor coils,


I can't tell you if it makes a difference
as I have been stationary up until yesterday.
I have the ducted air system with the intakes overhead
and I don't think I have a slide to divert air,
if I do I don't know where it is.

Headed for the Upper Peninsula for a few weeks
and I don't expect to be using much air conditioning up there,

Hope to see you at Pine Mountain.
