    General Technical
    I am clearing out the back of my T4 Caravelle (1999) and I have come across the rear air conditioning unit behind the trim, on the drivers side right at the back. It is not like similar units I have read about, there is no vent on the window. There are tubes going through the floor and seem to...

    Electrical
    Been looking at fitting AC in the van as we're heading down to Albania/Greece in the summer and its going to be rooooasting!

  8. Aircon and solar PV - Could dometic RTX 2000 actually work while parked?

    Electrical
    Ok I get it, running AC on 12/24V while parked up is exceptionally difficult if not impossible. But the new unit from Dometic (RTX 2000) looks like it 'could' work. Its designed for a truck but I dont see why it wouldn't work in a van.... anyone seen it done before? When I looked at this...
