Check your supply voltage, if it is low then the AC will not run as efficiently as it should.

Also check the baffle between the two sides, Ours had shifted some and the cool air was getting sucked back into the intake. It cooled better when it got fixed.

I do feel your pain, last fall we were at the beach, hotter that &**#*( the camper would get warm during the day, 85 ish

After reading some posts about A/C problems, I thought it was time to do a little test. We have a new Rockwood 2715 VS. We haven't even had a chance to do a maiden voyage yet, I think we've had it a month. I knew the a/c worked, but how well? I did this test this morning. The TT sits out in the open, at least for now. I have it on shore power, but to be sure I had sufficient power, I hooked up my generator, 5,000 watt. I turned everything on at 8 am this morning. O/S temp was 79 deg and I/S was the same. I think the humidity inside was 55%. I set the thermostat for 70 deg to start. Fan on continuous, low speed. At noon, I raised the stat to 75. Just checked again at 3:30, and the O/S temp is 93, the I/S temp is 76 and the humidity is down about 10%. The inside of the TT feels really good. Also, I took some other posters advice and pulled all the shades to keep out as much sun as possible. I'll turn it off in a little while, but I just wanted to see what would happen. I think I'm gonna be a happy camper. Thanks to all you A/C posters out there who chipped in with all your suggestions.

Hello, everyone. We just made it back from our maiden voyage with the Ultra V 2715VS, and wanted to fill everyone in on the trip. Towing was good. There was definitely more weight there than our older 19' trailer. I expected that, but it towed very well with no bad manners. Our AC did a very respectable job cooling. We kept the shades down, and tried to keep as much heat out of the trailer as possible. I will be ordering covers for the 2 vents, bathroom skylight, and the 2 doors probably tomorrow. Quite a bit of heat comes in from those. At the campsite, our O/S thermometer read from 98 to 101 degrees during the day, but the AC kept our I/S temp around 80. But the best part was the humidity that it took out of the air. Humidity in the trailer was between 48 and 52% depending on the time of day, and how much we went in and out. We were very comfortable, and it was quite nice when we came inside from walking or whatever. We cannot run the AC and the microwave together, as the microwave pulls a LOT more amps than what the manual says. We were using a Progressive 30 amp EMS and could see our amp usage at any given moment.
Everything else on the unit worked just as expected and we came back home happy campers, or at least happy as we could be being that we had to come home !!! Take care all.

As a PS to my last post, I received and installed the covers for the two ceiling vents, my shower skylight, and the two door windows. I plan to run the AC tomorrow with the generator to see the results there, but so far I can see quite a bit of difference. Those 5 covers keep a LOT of heat from coming into the trailer. Of course, it's a lot darker inside, but that's fine, too, cause we kept complaining that the inside was way too bright even with no lights on. So we'll see. I think, so far, those covers are going to be $50 well spent. Again, thanks to everyone for their suggestions and contributions. Travel safe.

I have a F250 short bed pulling a 2013 31 ft Wildcat. Has anyone added a Pop up 10 inch pin box extender so you do not have to used the sliding hitch? If so I would like your experience with it. Thanks
