|This is where the piece will be mounted. Sandwiched between the inner and outer skins.|
As you can see in the pictures, I used a piece of aluminum angle and screwed it into the factory holes designed for the window installation. This will be the face that I mount the seal to. On the top of the air conditioner, I used the bracket that was supplied.
I stopped by my local big box hardware store and picked up this little gem. Self adhesive weatherstrip seal. This will mount on the angle and when the a/c unit is pushed out, it will press against the outer wall.
The corners wanted to peel up, so I just threw a pop rivet in each corner to keep it tight. Probably not a good solution, but I'm a hack, so who cares.
I have added some pics to sort of tie it all together. This shows the bed installation with the a/c extended. The plywood inner structure acts as duct work. There is room in front of the a/c for a fan.

This should help move the air out into the cabin area.
I guess I will close this session for now, my family is asking for me to go hunt for food and provide for them. It's tough to juggle all of these tasks......
