Does anyone know what size the AC unit in the 2004 Spirit Deluxe is/was? 13,500BTUs or something else?

It's 9200 BTUH on my 2014. Think it may be the same on 2004 17' SD. Are you talking about the 16' or 17' Deluxe?

mine is a 2003 SD 17 9000 series and I believe it is 9200 BTUs it definitely  is not the 13,500. Even the newer and very loud MACH 8 is not 13,500


Happy Trails!

Folks.....

 

Yes...the old Polar Cub was about 9200 btu.  I replaced my defunct Polar Cub last year with a Mach 1When ordering,  I had a choice of 11,000 or 13,500 btu capacity.  I went for the 11,000, because I believed (and now feel correctly so) that the 13,500 had so much excess capacity that it would be endlessly cycling on and off.

Wouldn't the larger capacity unit temperatures be maintained by the T-stat the same as any other capacity? It may also get to setpoint quicker thus running for less time.  I'm not sure it would affect the cycling frequency.  What I would be worried about is the power consumption with higher amperage.  Might not work with the smaller generators if you decide to get one.

Wally.....

 

Either way, the 17 SD certainly doesn't need 13,500 to stay VERY cool.  With 11,000, my low cool setting is more than enough  regardless of the outside temp!

In a round about way I was agreeing with you. 13,500 is overkill. :rolleyes:  Wish I knew why I'm getting double quote boxes.
