Re: Affordable Portable Air Conditioner Unit for 6-10 Man Tent

I have an LG 9000 btu model in my man cave. Works great. It draws 9.2 amps and uses a 15 amp plug in. The space is about 14 x 10 with 10 foot ceilings. I would think it would do fine in a tent. It kept a 12 foot pup cool in about 80 degree heat. We only ran it at night.

Good luck!

Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you want

Re: Affordable Portable Air Conditioner Unit for 6-10 Man Tent

I travel with 6 women of 3 different ancestries. They sit in the rear and wear minimal clothing to keep cool. When we get to the site, they set up camp. Once the tent is up, they divide the work of cooking and setting up my tent. Two of them follow me constantly; one with an umbrella for shade and the other to fan me as I walk or sit.

I find this far superior to an electric aircon unit....

I hope they set your chair and beer cooler up in the shade before they set the tent up...

Seriously though - Camping with A/C???
Where are you camping? The surface of the sun?

Just get some chinesium rechargable fans.
Sleep on a stretcher with just a sheet over & under you - outdoors or under an awning or something.

I gotta admit, AC for a tent just sounds silly.

Oh mon ami, they do very many things for me which I cannot discuss with my fellow forum members - as many are easily offended and take umbrage at the touch of the wind...

Re: Affordable Portable Air Conditioner Unit for 6-10 Man Tent

Spoof? "Mia Packer"??

And AC for a tent while "camping"??

Longtooth's solution is well-proven and sounds FAR superior in every way ...
