A/c installation Todd 7-22-03  
I have a 1980 Chevy/Carpenter 66 passenger I am converting to an RV. I recently bought a roof mount A/C unit from a motorhome being parted out. Will I need to build some type of frame to help support it between the roof and ceiling? There's a couple of inches gap between the roof and ceiling. Any ideas/suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Yes you should, the cut-out is 14",I(watch to cut between 2 bow) and then make a frame out of wood to fit snug between the roof & ceiling. Shape the upper part of the wooden frame to match the curve of the roof at the front & rear. If you retain the metal ceiling you will need to make the surface flat to accommodate the inside diffuser & trim.
good luck wrench

My inside diffuser and trim? I'm confused as to what you mean. Thanks for your reply.

Hey! I am looking to see if you could tell me where i could found the whole equipment for an a/c unit new for a conventional bus 66psg or 36psg. I am at Orlando, Fl. I will like to ship and installed those over at Puerto Rico. If you could please give me a call on (407)312-1403 or email me as soon as possible.

I should say control & diffuser/trim.
control being the metal frame with the switch, the diffuser/trim being the plastic part.
Re: a/c installation Todd 9-5-03  
I'm not sure where you could find an a/c new, I got mine off a used motorhome that is being scrapped for parts. I would think most any RV or Motorhome dealer would either have them in stock or could order one. Check around at local junkyards, they might have one.
