Will our generator support another ac unit? Or would it be possible to wire for shore power only? (Kitchen vent location)
Should we consider larger units and just stick with 2 units?
It's going to be tough getting it cool it that temp. A couple of questions.
1 Do you have a outside sunshade?
If you do do you have it on the drivers side window and the door?
2 do you have awnings on the exposed windows?
3 do you have insulation in the vents?
4 How about the skylight. I have considered painting it white to help with the heat invasion.
5 Do you have 13,500 AC or 15000?
6 When very hot out we open the main vent to allow the cool air to drop down instead of going through the vents. This is only for older MH as the new ones are different.
As far as I have seen there is not a single answer to cooling the MH. All these things I have done and it helps. I guess if you had 3 AC you would not need to worry about it but I don't so keeping the heat out is very important.
