Starcool Condenser Dropdown Mechanism?
Has anybody considered installing a track or slide mechanism that would allow you to unlock and lower the Starcool condenser and fan unit when parked / camping? After reviewing the system it seems to me that the clearance in front of the condenser is limiting the heat dissipation and affecting the cooling. This would also allow you to install a cover to protect the condenser from mud, rocks etc. and could be removed easily when lowered. I plan on doing some performance (temp) tests but was curious if anyone has made something similar.
And before you say it, of course raising the unit back up prior to driving off would be important and added to the departure checklist. We will fabricate a “Raise Starcool Before Departure” or something similar flag for steering wheel, windshield or ignition, etc.
