A/C for the rear

Post by DJOHALL » Sun Jul 18, 2021 4:48 pm

Has anyone piped cool a/c are into the rear of their van with any success?

I am looking for a solution to keep my dogs nice and cool on the summer beach trips. I have a fully sealed bulkhead and don't want to take it out permanently for security when I have the van full of tools or bikes.

I've ducted the centre console air feed to the load space via the driver's side.
I used two 25mm tubes into an adaptor and fitted a webasto ball type vent on the side panel.

Interested in this. I was looking at 12v fans for the dogs in the back but would much rather re route the AC.

@Doc where did you connect the 2 25mm pipes to in the drivers compartment?

I cut them into the bend in the duct below the handbrake. Came out where the centre console cup holder would be if I didn't have a bulkhead.

Is there a route you can take with the pipes when you have rear seats fitted?

Also what pipe do you need to use?

Cheers.

If you have rear seats you'll have the floor ducts and also the one in the back of the arm rest if you have one.

I find the flow for the aircon quite lacking or the rear in my caddy maxi life, with your installation of pipes do you have to put the circulation on a particular setting to get the air flow usable?

Thanks 😊
