Ditto - let it run. We've been RVing for over 10 years and have never had a problem. When we're in South Texas or the Texas Hill Country and the outdoor temperature is between 95 and 110...it's a no-brainer to leave the AC running.

If the dog is in the camper - ON
If not; OFF

Exception: If DW's chocolate is not in fridge; ON - MAX

What Lou said. When the beautiful SadieMae has to stay behind, the AC stays on. I left the AC on low setting when it heated up last weekend. I believe Sadie was quite happy in there.

May turn it up a few degrees, but we leave it on. What I do turn off is the water.

X2 whole heartedly! If the pooch is sightseeing with us, we've turned it off. If we leave him behind, we leave it on. If DW's chocolate melts, bad things happen, so it always stays in the fridge!

We are currently camping in Alburquerque, NM, with temps in the mid to upper 90s. Been out all day and it sure was nice coming back too a cool camper. We would have been miserable coming back to a hot box after being out all day.
Campground doesn't seem to mind if we leave it on, so my vote : leave it on.

I'm new to RV's/Trailers but if your trailer has breakers (not fuses), you might be able to upgrade the AC breaker to an AFCI (Arc Fault, Circuit Interrupter). These trip the power off when they detect a spark in the electrical.

X2, if it burns to the ground and nobody is in it, the insurance company can deal with it. Life is too da-- short to worry about everything that could go wrong. What if, what if, what if... Camping is supposed to be fun, so make yourself comfortable and HAVE FUN!

We are currently camped out in Branson. We turn it off for 30 minutes a day to eat breakfast then in it goes for the day. If we were to turn it off it'd have to work a lot harder when we get back so why bother? So far no issues and no humidity in there either. It has a thermostat in it do only the fan runs all day.
