Portable Evaporative Cooler (swamp cooler)
I attend more n likely the same hot dry dusty gathering. Many years we have lucked out and had some 110 to run AC's or wall plug swamp coolers. Not so this year at Chilleville. Your unit is mondo and your awesome flip pac camper with the requisite silver bubble insulation probably has similar cooling needs to my Alaskan pop up camper. How many Gallons of agua are you going through on a typical blistering playa day nap? Or lets just keep it per 24 hours average. I was thinking a 5 gallon bucket or ice chest style within my camper might do the trick. I wonder if there is a cooling advantage or disadvantage to having your evap cooler inside rather than outside. Better brush up on thermodynamics. I guess at some point the humidity inside a structure would make it so the cooling effect of evaporation was diminished. didn't notice this when using a plug in one inside a van one year. Is Bill Nye a burner? Very interested to know how much H20 your mega swamp consumes, gracias.
What type of fan is pictured here? To me it looks like a HVAC condenser fan but those use a ton of energy.
