I do wish they could make a quieter ac... They are way too loud!

We live in Florida and camp almost every month. I have a Wildwood with the A/C that came in it. I've never actually looked at what size it is, I'm from the old school idea if it ain't broke don't fix it so I've never had a reason to mess with it. Anyway, We never have any issues with cooling. We turn it on and go to sleep. It has no problems keeping the 31' TT cool.

Last time I camped, my trailer wasn't cooling well, and that's when I learned about the fan setting on thermostat. I had it set to on. The fan running non stop with the AC made it feel muggy in the trailer. When I set it to auto it seemed to cool much better, and not sure if related or not, but it was only then that moisture drained off the roof.

Had no toad so called a cab and headed for the Comfort in in Plantation Next morning headed home. Funny thing bought a toad before we left and was going to get it set up when we got home the following week. Still in shop waiting for new a/c and just got the toad back all set up with Blue ox.We'll do the trip again next month. When you have no a/c and it's in the high 90's IT'S TO HOT TO CAMP.
Helpful Hint: One camps in Key West in Dec-Feb NOT June

When we had the popup we used to run the fan for white noise to drown out the less than quiet campers near us.

When I lived in south Texas a snowbird was anybody from north of Oklahoma. A huge percentage of our local economy was funded by people coming south to escape the cold. Personally, I never had a problem sharing the Texas sun with those unfortunate enough to not live there full time.

I went ahead with the camping this weekend. Got here around 1:30. It was mid 90's with heat advisories. Trailer cooled off pretty fast, and been comfortable since. Followed some suggestions here on setting the AC a little lower than ambient and slowly bringing it down. Also made some sun shades from the reflective bubble tape stuff from Lowes, but haven't needed them yet.

Only downside has been that my last lav dump apparently wasn't sufficient. On the first toilet flush, I nearly gagged. Nothing like 100 degree month old poo. Thankfully we've got full hookups to run a bunch of water through and then dump.

When the DW says it is.

For us, our favorite place is a range. We go, park, set up, shoot for a couple hours and by then it is the heat of the day and the AC has caught up.

As long as there's a breeze, life is good. Heat is never as bad as mosquitoes.
