a buddy of mine has built a pretty sweet deer cooler in his shed

the problem is the window unit will not cool it. i am thinking the t-stat needs to be bypassed on the unit.

Anyone have experience with this?

going to be tough unless: the unit has an electronic temperature sensor instead of a mechanical one.

if he elects to go with a newer type such as LG brand, he can utilize the Cool-Bot system like I have.

I can get my cool room down to 35 degrees with a 15,000 BTU. 408 Cubic feet in less than 2hours from an 80F starting point.

the Cool Bot has a small peice of heat trace that piggy backs onto the temp sensor on the front coils and 'fools' the unit into operating at a much lower temperature. It's about $300 and works surprisingly extremely well with your appropriate type window unit and well insulated cool room
