I assume that is the same as a "swamp cooler"? I don't know anyone running those in an auto application... I also thought they were for dry climates only? We're semi humid in this part of Texas.

Edit: I see the thread here http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...r-c-24392.html ...interesting.

Over-the-road and agricultural versions are very popular among Brazilian truck drivers, both for fuel savings comparing to an engine-driven A/C compressor and the ability to leave it turned on while sleeping inside the vehicle with the engine off. I've seen it even in Amazon, which is highly humid.
