Don't bother. I've had 2 Aircon units fail. Fit a MaxxFan instead. Easier to get 12V to it than mains voltage

A max fan would be pretty useless in a Corinium though, at nearly eight metres.

If your kitchen vent is in the middle of your van then I would strongly disagree that it would be useless.  I have an EK Nuevo at almost 6m and it is fitted in the rear rooflight by the kitchen.  I fitted it because we often had to open the habitation door to stop the smoke alarm activation when cooking. I have been AMAZED at its efficiency. 30 to 50% air flow while cooking, 10% totally silent on hot nights and 100% (noisy) for a short blow through. Even at 50% the effect can be felt by the front of the lounge area. Others who have fitted one will present similar views.

Having the Aircon fitted next month, got a good deal on a truma compact.

There are fitting deals on offer at the summer Motorhome shows. This was at East Of England Showground in 2021. I didn’t go for it, but would have killed for it in Switzerland last summer when some nights it was still 30C outside at bedtime.
