Adding rear AC

Fuzb0 on Mon September 10, 2007 7:45 AM User is offline

Year: 1984
Make: Dodge
Model: VAN
Engine Size: 318
Refrigerant Type: R-12
Ambient Temp: 90
Pressure Low: 25
Pressure High: 160
Country of Origin: United States

Any Idea's where to start in adding a rear AC to my van? ... The kids can get pretty hot in the 3rd row with just the front vents on full blast.

I have thought about going the ebay route and grabbing any rear ac heater unit... and making some sort of frankenstein... but I don't know how to plumb it into my existing setup. So I would prefer some sort of kit. I have googled for hours on this topic and finally just figured I'd better ask in a forum where the can sympathize with the arizona heat.

I have found where I can buy an RV roof mount type BIG AC but I don't have the alternator or auxiliary batteries for that.
Has anyone here added rear ac after the fact or can you point me in the right direction, thanks in advance.

Might look at this rear system. You will still need to tie in the lines to the front system which requires additional hose and fittings.

Tim,
Just out of curiosity, and for my own knowledge. Does the lines for the rear units basically just tie in parallel to the exisitng system, or is there some kind of special balancing act that goes on?
Thanks!

You will need to tie into the suction and liquid lines. Bets to have the bottom of the "T" running to the rear system. So basically splice the top of the "T" in your current lines.
