Danhard Air Conditioning in Ford van
I am installing the Danhard 70-2030 Air Conditioning System in my 2007 Ford van with Sportsmobile top.
The Danhard 70-2030 main components are the Evaporator (which is, of course, mounted inside the van), the Compressor, the Condensor, the Accumulator, and Controller. I, also, have Danhard supplied mounting brackets for the Compressor and Accumulator. I have a question on where to mount some of the components.
I will mount everything but the Evaporator & Controller outside, under the van. I am planning on mounting the Condenser under the drivers side, and forward, what would be right behind the drivers seat. I had hoped to mount the Compressor right behind the Condenser, attaching the mounting bracket to the Ford frame. I had hoped to mount the Accumulator right behind the Compressor attaching the mounting bracket to the Ford frame. My problem is that it does not appear that you can bolt to the drivers side of the Ford frame unless you drop the gas tank for access to the the inside of the frame.
Does anyone have suggestions on where else I could mount the Compressor, or on attaching the Compressor mounting bracket to the frame?
The drivers side frame has easy access for mounting the Compressor mounting bracket; but, I am concerned about hose length going from one side of the van to the other.
If anyone has a Ford van with the Danhard system already installed, will you please tell me where the components are mounted?
