    Yes . . . the ductwork comes up both sides of the bedroom roof vent.

    Yes, shore power will be there per the label on the vent inner housing. The thermostat wiring is usually taped to the 12v wires behind the bedroom light switch on the wall.

    Thanks, I'm considering an AC with the heat pump having it ducted with a thermostat will be perfect

    Fot those who have added second AC after purchase- what brand and what vendor have you purchased from, have you installed yourself or had it done, do we lose the vent fan in the bedroom, and what is a fair price! What about noise level compared to the Atwood in the living area? We have a 2014 337. Thanks for your responses!

    I had Grand Design install our second AC unit on August 31 ... Just after the Owners Rally.
    It was a low profile, ducted Dometic unit. Cost was $1019.
    Nice and hot the day they finished it. The rig cooled down so much faster.
    Glad we did it. Will be even more happy when we head south.
    Noisey I guess, but don't plan on running it while we sleep.

    Hi Steve. I have a 2014 337 also. After a year, I had my dealer install the Dometic, low profile, ducted unit in the bedroom. It was around $1200 - but the labor costs in this area are much more than elsewhere. You can get the same thing added for less than or close to $1K in other places or at the GDRV Svc place. Yes, you lose the bedroom vent & fan. (Somewhere on here though, there's a thread about a ?Momentum? owner re-adding a vent/fan after his bedroom AC was installed. He just cut another hole, I believe in line with the original vent.)
    The noise level on the Dometic is higher than the Atwood, but Atwood doesn't make a low-profile unit. I think it is partially also because the ceiling is lower in the bedroom. We just turn our BR AC off at night and still get cooling from the main unit.

    I think the cost of parts was around $800.

    If you're wanting a heat pump, I'd tell you to have the living room a/c unit moved to the bedroom, and hooked up to a new thermostat above the existing overhead light switch. Then put a ducted heat pump in the rear--preferably a 15K btu model.

    I have a Reflection trailer, and I'm going to wait until next Spring to install a Dometic Penguin II ducted unit in my bedroom. No reason to install it right now and lose 8 months' warranty coverage until I start using the trailer late Spring.

    If people can use the standard height a/c unit (instead of low profile), they'll save substantially. Adding a/c is not especially a labor intensive job--relatively quick and easy.
