Fourth new air conditioner swap out? They must be desperate in having to sleep that close to the air conditioner.

Interesting. Looks like Coleman part number 452038793. On-line information looks to be very scarce so far. Seems to be under $1K, though. Much cheaper than the "quiet" alternatives. Maybe we are getting some action by the manufacturers.

You'd think manufacturers would already have made their ac's as quiet as possible (excluding exotic technologies and their associated costs). A concern just occurred to me that I hope the new Coleman was developed purely on their own. I'd hate to read they infringed on any copyrights. But it just seems odd to me that all of a sudden they are achieving these significant improvements with quiet operation.

I think our friend James was being a bit dramatic with the fork-lift bit. These units weight in at 85 pounds.

They didn't have an easy time with the last one and maybe Steph drew the line. Plus, it is entertainment.

I think Iíd probably do same. I donít think I could tote 85lbs up a ladder.

Well probably could if I didnít have any other options, but if I do this same upgrade, Iíll have it delivered to work (where I could use our forklift)
