Wildwood AC not cooling

We have a Wildwood 273QBXL..... The lowest we can get the inside temp is 83... If we are not cooking... Lol.... 93 if we are.... The outside temp is 100..... Is this normal? It sure takes the fun out of camping in the summer! Lol

It may not be the a/c unit... it might be the trailer.

It was with ours, anyway.

Newbie with air conditioner that can't keep up?

If the AC is a Dometic unit, have it checked by the dealer. They've just replaced ours at only 4 months old.
Apparently there's a lot of defective Dometic units out there.

Give us the model of the A/C, but as Marky said, Dometic is having issues with some 15,000 btuh units.

One quick check is to get a thermometer and check the temp difference between the intake and return. It should be about 15F. Also check the partition between the intake and return. It should be solid.

An RV is not an insulated house made to withstand extreme temperatures. I am in Corpus Christi, TX where temps are above 100 degrees. My 13,500 Domestic AC cools my MicroLite to between 78 and 84 degrees in the heat of the day, yet freezes down to 62 degrees at night. I run a large fan, drink iced beverages, and wrap cool towels around my neck. Learn to adapt.
