I bought this exact AC from BJ's on 5/10/2017. Same item number but they called at 14,000 BTU back then. I used the dehumidifier function once and it caused water to pour out from the bottom because I didn't have a hose hooked up and it was very humid. Other than that, this thing has been rock solid for a year cooling my upstairs office in the Florida heat. Running it on AC I've never had to drain it, the water evaporates off.

The only thing I would change about it is when the desired temperature is reached I wish it would shut off the fan entirely instead of just shutting off the compressor. The air coming out with just the fan running feels very humid. I understand it probably does that to continue exhausting the moisture out the hose but it feels like some of moisture is being directed inside as well.

Seems like a decent deal.

Most reviewed seem to complain about the exhaust hookups.
I'm looking at a portable for camping, so not worried about the window kit.
I've also never seen / used one with tight hoses that connect to the units - tape works well to fix this.

This seems like a lighter unit compared to others at only 67-73lbs. Most reviews state the exhaust is adequate and doesn't need draining, but it does have a drain hose connection - this is good. Several reviewers state quiet operation.

Worried about the cord length - reviews state you can't use an extension cord. Anyone confirm / deny this? I would need to use an extension cord.

1-year warranty - otherwise looks like a good portable for $299. No stores in my state, so should be tax free.

Can you apply the $100 coupon more than once? I need 2 and I don't have an account to test, I was just going to get an online membership.

Maybe try another browser. I bought the membership in Safari and even trying to logout and login again, coupon wouldn't apply. Booted up Chrome and it went through fine. Another issue is in checkout I couldn't change the credit card from the one I used to purchase membership so I had to use Masterpass...

So you were only using it with one hose connected ? Can you please clarify as I just purchased this unit and am new to portable air conditioning so I am confused as to if I need to hook up both hoses or just one?

For most climates, the auto-evaporate function will be enough to expel the humidity out the window. The drain nipple is unnecessary in these situations.

However - if you live in a very high humidity climate like FL or LA, then you most likely want to attach a drain hose. Especially when you first turn it on, as it will collect a lot of moisture bring down the room temperature and humidity.

You can test it by allowing the unit to run for 24 hrs without a drain hose. Then shut it down and drain. If you get a small amount of water, no drain hose will be needed. If you're getting a half gallon, then you'll either need to attach a drain hose, or constantly empty the unit.

Thank you for the response. For perspective I am in NYC. Also, When you say drain hose are you referring to the exhaust (the bigger one) hose or the intake?

There will be a third connection point either underneath or along the bottom back of the unit. Usually it will be very small, something like 3/8" ID. But in NY you won't need it.

Understood. Well mine didnt come with a drain hose is that something I would have to purchase separately if needed? Also can you please clarify for me if I have to use both hoses that came with the unit and what purpose they serve so that I can understand. Do I HAVE to use both intake/exhaust?

Usually they don't. Highly recommended to use both hoses, but not required. They are used to intake/exhaust air over the heat exchanger. You're paying a premium for a dual hose unit. Using only the exhaust hose will create negative pressure in the room and reduce efficiency. You'll be sucking the newly conditioned air right out the window. However using only the exhaust hose won't prevent unit function.

Have you tried the heating function? I need something for cooling and heating. It seems like people either love or hate this unit.
