PostSubject: how does rear air con work   Thu Aug 01, 2013 7:55 pm

I have a theory about the rear air con in my campervan that we are all lucky to have as toyota owners.

Does it run off 12v only or does it need engine on to run a compressor? The reason I ask is that I have a solar panel and in this scorchio weather we are having in uk it would be nice to wire it in to keep van cool when parked up or even use it as primary air con cause can really feel drag on engine with cab air con on. I am guessing it is pretty high power ie 10 amps plus on full, but to keep it on low?

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Although this is an old thread, I have checked the way mine is set up.

The rear air con lines run down the pillar behind the front passengers door, and connect to the same system as the front air con.

Also, the rear air con will act as a fan only if the front air con and A/C button is turned off.

I hope this helps.

Must have had a bad day on my last post.

Yes it is a secondary system branching from the front and if fitted hot/cool box. Mine had the box which could be run without the front A/C on as could the rear A/C. The rear A/C button could turn thye rear off and on from the front.
