Chris, They are basicly a water evaporative cooler and not real good in high humidity areas, Have used a different brand same principle in my truck and not real impressed.Refrigerated ones are 100% better

hi Dave

which refrigerated would you consider as best energy effective?
Point is they need a generator, which would made the effort to big for a small slideon camper.
better stay with the ventlators than

Been around for about 3 years on the Aussie market.

Why do you want one of these and not a refrigerated type.

Works the same as evaporative types in houses.

The cost about the same as refrigerated reverse cycle.

simply refrigerated system suck to much energy for battery/solar systems. As far as I know, aircondition is not possible without generator

They all take a minimum of a EU20i Honda Chris. Have a Dometic 1900 in the Karavan and that is a pretty small one. A fan is about the only option.

The point above about the water required for the evaporative a/c is a warning though, as no matter what you will have extra weight which is tough for a slide-on. It is better to go without until you can carry more as we found out. People with trailers and caravans or Karavans do carry or take more.
Cheers,

thanks John
as I understand its really about getting humidity in the air and
working with circulating. That really dosn't work in tropical areas, by using a ventilator you have the same effect there.
You are right, extra weight through water is a point.

here are a few smaller compressor ones I found:
Dometic B 1100 S
Waeco CoolAir CA-1000
SAPHIR COMPACT
SUNNY AIRCO 2000

--- and other brads
SILENT BIPOWER 7000 H TELAIR
ICEBERG 5012 12V
FROSTAIR 1700
Waeco EASY COOL EC1500 heating + cooling
DUAL - POWER 1

and i found supercool.se M2-12-MCD thermo electric used for emergecy vehicles and yachting, thermo electrical
how ever this might work, it looks interesting
