"It is posable to do this, i've done it 3 times now with varying success. You
"have to watch out for condensetion on the "outside" part, and you have to
"watch the airflow pattern of the origonal desgin. The biggest part is
"getting enough air flow away from the back of the air conditioner, i'm not
"exactly shure if it causes a problem but the longer the AC ran the warmer
"the air coming out was. but i never realy did any actual test, just the very
"scientific "hold your had infront of it" test. and i'm pretty sure one of
"the AC units i did it to ended up dying.

the trick would be finding the condenser fan, so that one of the ducts
went directly to it.

come to think of it, a booster fan on the duct wouldn't be a bad idea.
