Hannigan Sidecar AC

12

Does anyone have instructions on how to install the AC in a Hannigan Astro sidecar. Spoke to manuafacture and was told no manual. Company indicated they would help via phone to istall but wanted to know if anyone has installed and have instructions that can be followed.

Thank you

I've got the AC in my GTL but it was factory installed. It looks like a pretty straightforward installation although, I'm not sure about the switch wiring as we had to rewire it to get the pump to work.

Thank you

Installed one in our Astro 2+2, not factory.. but homebuilt. Works great.. I used a cooler and Rule marine pump and an A/C under dash evaporator (3 speed) from Ebay. All plumbing tubing came from lawn irrigation section at Home Depot. Wired it to existing fan wiring unit in sidecar. Tried to post pics but ipad acting up. Not to bad of a project.

Hoping this will work....no luck....

A/C got some photos to cross over...…..and a BIG THANK YOU to Butch Turner, whom I met last year at the Arkansas Razorback Rally for showing and explaining his set-up in his rig. His set-up was my guideline. Thanks Butch this thing is a Godsend in thre Florida weather..the wife and Grankids Thank You !

Where did you find the quick disconnects for the pipes/hoses on the ice chest. Where did you acquire the dash vent with the blower? Incidently - this setup looks a lot like the AC setups for light aircraft but doesn't require an FAA approval.

OOPPS! I guess if I had backed up in the posts I could have gotten most of my questions answered. I still would like to know where the blower/dash unit came from.

That's equivalent to the "factory" unit in my GTL. But, I'll bet it was a lot cheaper, lol. The wife tells me the AC works great.

The under dash evaporator came from Ebay The seller is in Florida still has items on eBay I got the A/C connectors (two) from the local auto air cond. shop $10. The evap unit costs approx $85. The Home Depot irrigation and tubing amen to approximately$125. So, for a little over $200 the passengers who ride in the sidecar are very comfortable here in Florida. Tokyo awhile to install but not that bad. I made a bracket to hold the under dash unit from aluminum I had using the hinged sidecar top hinges with longer ny-lock nuts. Worth every penny.
