Ive got that same little unit and it does work really well........find you a plastic container about the size of the ice hopper and freeze the blocks whole and use them. Works alot better and last longer than using cubes..... One word of caution though...put a towel down under it.......water tends to leak from the mister nozzle and run down the unit. Us fat boys gotta have A/C even when we camping !!!!!!

I seen a program on TV about a State Park campground in FL I think. Folks there were using regular 110 volt 6,000 btu airconditioners on there tents. They just set them on a milk crate and with a hole cut in the tent and duct tape they were good to go.

The park was griping about the electric usage and the campsites were not wired heavy enough for this type of use. lol

Hey these new tents don't cost a fortune and that nylon fabric dosent unravel, so it looked like a heck of a good idea to me. Room airconditioners can be had for about a hundred bucks. The new ones are smaller and lighter than they used to be.

Just a dumb thought that really works. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Cold Air in a tent!!!
What a concept.

Bet that thing would kick with a scoop of dry ice and the water wouldnt be a problem.

ya in 05 at the illinois gathering i took a window mount and put it on a 5 gal bucket. smashed it againt the mesh window and tossed a comfortor over the tent & ac and made sure to leave back of ac open for air flow. we were freezing. and does no dammage this way.

also ive seen folks sit em on the ground and had a box built to fit the cold air outlet and 2 dryer ducts running off it to two tents.

but this would be no dought lighter and less hasstle. and no cords or elect needed.

Everyone might want to read the review on the Cabelas site for this little unit. Doesn't sound like the guy was REAL happy with it. On a hot day you would need alot of ice and alot of attention to it.:confused2:
