I recently installed a RecPro (Houghton) 9.5  BTU A/C in my 1997 Squire which was factory plumbed for A/C, but never had one. As I shopped around, I ran into supply issues, and my internet search led me to RecPro. Amazon had units ready to ship. The factory opening is 14” x 14” square but A/C requires rough opening of 14 3/16” for the mounting flange, so I had to cut the opening a tad bigger. Other than that, pretty basic install. Used butyl tape to seal the mounting flange to the roof, and added extra insurance with some Dicor S/Leveling sealant. Unit goes together pretty well and seems very well made with a touch of simple-but-effective European engineering (although it’s Australian). Once installed it ran flawlessly with power being supplied by a Honda EU2200i. Shore power had the same result (no sign of smoke from my wiring skills 😂). Very low profile on the exterior and interior sides. Time will tell but I’m looking forward to having cool air during the summer months. Purchased the unit from RecPro through their Amazon store. Very happy with it thus far…
