I tend to be outside most of the time do I always have a fan sitting on the picnic table! As long as I have air moving, I'm ok!! Also do most, if not all the cooking outside!

Made the same mods after Lou posted them and altho we don't have the 15K unit, ours does just fine. Thanks Lou.

We have a 29 ft. unit with one 15K A/C system. We live in hot, humid florida. We traveled to Mississippi last summer and camped in 100 degree weather. Yes, it gets warm, especially during the day, but it was fine. We use a tower fan to help move the air. This is also how we stay comfortable at home because we don't run the air too cold at home. Saves on electricity. It helps if you have somewhere to swim to cool off during the day. With the snow birds taking up all the campgrounds in the winter, if we didn't camp in the summer, we would never be able to go!

28' travel trailer made by Forest River with one 15K AC. Aluminum skin, 4 China bombs, one slide.



Good suggestions so far. I like that AC mod. Depending on how this works out, I may do that down the road. Maybe after the warranty expires.

I figure we'll just do the trip, and see what happens. I'm thinking a good Mojito recipe could help with the warm nights as well.

I will be sure and give some feedback post trip, but keep the tips and suggestions coming.

Have a look at this thread. There may be some things you want to do before the trip.

None of it cost a lot of money.

Newbie with air conditioner that can't keep up?

It will be OK , get a small fan and keep the air moving . It is always 95 or 100 here in the summer and it ain't so bad .

Opening the door will be your biggest lost of cool air. Either stay in or out but in and out you might as well leave the door open. They will be hot outside and come in and think it was better outside. As mentioned above get a fan for outside too. Once the sun goes down I have had no problems with the AC cooling down within one to two hours to be able to sleep. I like to sleep when cool.

When is it too hot to camp?

When I camp on Venus instead of Earth.

Yes we take up a lot of sites , but look how much money we are pumping into your economy , I know the owners of the camp grounds never say no to our cash
