    Hello everybody
    We are (hopefully) about to buy a secondhand Hymer B584.
    The one we are looking at has an air con unit in the living area (nice).
    Just one question - Can these units be run whilst you are driving?
    Thanks.

    Possibly, the Waeco units came in two flavours, mains only or with a big inverter to allow it to run from the alternator. If you have the AC/DC version be aware it puts a large load on the alternator of around 100 amps for a 1500 Watt unit (could be more if a higher wattage AC unit is fitted).
