I have a truck cap on my truck and my dog (only 1 dog) rides in his crate in the back of the truck. Today it was only about 72 degrees and it was pretty hot in there. I'm concerned about my dog sitting around all day in that thing at some hunt tests as the weather continues to get warmer.
My truck cap has a sliding window that matches the sliding rear window in my truck, so I had the idea of running the A/C in my truck and using a small 12 volt fan to pull the air from the truck cab into the cap. I know I read a thread on here about that last summer, but I can't find it. A search on "fan" doesn't get it and a search on "fan AND window" doesn't get it either.
While searching the internet for 12 volt fans I came upon an item called "KoolerAire" and it looks pretty slick if it works as advertised...and I already have an item just like the portable power supply that they sell for it, so I wouldn't even need to buy that, just the KoolerAire unit itself. I have included a link for the KoolerAire unit.http://www.kooleraire.com/index.htm
So I have 2 questions for the RTF community:
1) What can you tell me about the original solution I had in mind?
2) Do you have any experience with or thoughts about the KoolerAire unit to cool my truck bed/cap for my dog?
P.S. I know I could just stake him out, but even then it can be very hot and at a dog event like that I would worry greatly about someone running over him...with people hurrying to and from different stakes, etc.
