"My rule of thumb on RV A/C is divide the coach length (ft) by 2. That's the minimum A/C requirement in the South."

That's why I didn't even think of getting the smaller AC unit. We live in NJ now, but are probably moving to NC in the next 12-18 months.

I had to pay the initial service call $75.00 but no more because I drove to their shop for the swapping out of units. Also Forest River reimbursed me for the $75.00
When the AC was replaced is the camper staying cool in hot weather ?

I believe there was a leak in the compressor and since it was under warranty Domestic just replaced the entire unit.

After replacement unit cools on Hot days and heat pump warms on cool evenings. Both heating & cooling are handled by the same unit

We hang a blanket to block off the cab area when it's cold or hot outside. The cab has very little insulation. When we get to our campsite in hot weather, I open the hood to let the engine heat out. Otherwise, a lot of heat comes through the doghouse.

Thanks that is Avery good idea
I am beginning to think there is an issue with the AC unit. However, when I fix the unit I will still open the hood and use a blanket

Thanks
