I want to install a new a/c unit in a 1994 school bus. Do I hook it up to an inverter or battery or something else? Do I need a seperate battery syst? How to I run wiring from battery, inverter, a/c? Or should I just open windows while driving !! I can run a/c on port. generator when stopped, but I need cool air when driving.
Waeco manufacture a rooftop A/C with a matching inverter.you will need to ensure that you have enough battery power when staionary but your al;ternator will provide power when mobile you could also use a small generator through a battery charger to keep your batteriesd charged up but this is not neccessary unless you are stopped for a long period of time.these units are fairly easy to install and come with fitting instructions for the A/C and wiring kits for the inverter..hope this helps

What part about installation are you having problems with, and what are you installing it on? Do you have both upper (roof) unit & lower ( at ceiling) ? Is it a ducted system or blowing directly from ceiling assy? Check this link as well , you may find 6300 series is same install. http://www.dometic.com/enus/Americas/USA/RV-Products/Manuals-and-Instructions2/
I see what you see also in the manual. The difference is the Heat Strip package that part is optional and the 600212-001 with the optional heat strips becomes the new 600315-001 I talked to Dometic Duo-Therm and the models are the same but they both are not heat pumps but the new heat strip package comes on when told to go into heat mode when you change the thermostat to heat. The part you purchased will fit both model numbers you listed for your roof top air conditioner. Thanks, Sea Breeze
What make and Model? You basically set it over framed 14"x14" hole, with clean surface, align it properly so gasket is aligned all around hole, install ceiling assy, inside with 4 bolts that extend to unit on roof, and draw it down evenly until gasket is compressed about 1/2 it's original thickness, hook up your wiring, etc. Are you starting from scratch, or replacing another unit?
Fairly easy. The only thing that you must figure out is how many amps the heat strips will draw. Make sure the fuses and the breaker switch can handle them. And be aware your electric bills will shoot up.
Shut off Any AC power (hydro) to it, remove ceiling assy (inside part) and you'll see 4 bolts going up through lower assy, and into base of upper assy (roof unit) . Remove those 4 bolts and any wiring harness connected from lower to upper unit. Lift it off. If your just replacing the upper assy, leave hydro wires hooked up to lower assy , and let it hang, while you clean surface on roof for new install. Re-install 4 bolts and tighten equally until gasket is approx 1/2 thickness it was before tightening. Re-install wiring harness plug in to lower unit etc. If not replacing, but removing entire assy (upper and lower) be sure to Marette and tape hydro wires as well as any 12 volt wires, and tuck away safely. Install a vent on current opening , or whatever you choose.
I just spoke with the mechanic at my RV dealership and he said the sticky side goes on the a/c unit. You only have to turn it on it's side to do this. Just wait 1 hour after re-installing the unit on your RV before turning it on.
