I was wondering if someone made a window fan you could push the hot air out one side an suck cool air in on other side.
I prefer Cross Ventilation!
I hate to say this but, if the inside is 100* and the outside is 95*, not much cool air is acomin'!

If it is not a rainy day while traveling, I'll leave the vents open to "let out" the hot air that builds up inside. The first thing I do after unhooking is get the power cord plugged in and the A/C going. Turn the FF on high for a few minutes until some cool air is flowing from the A/C, then turn off the FF and close the vents. Put Relectix on the windows behind the day/night shades, tower fan in the den, box fan in the BR, vent pillows in the vents, awning out for shade, keep door closed as much as possible, cook outside, leave the fan for the A/C in the ON position, do the sight seeing during the middle part of the day(gonna be hot anyways).

We are leaving on Wednesday to cross the entire country going to NY to visit family. I too, worry about out 2 small dogs that will be traveling with us. My biggest fear is that the AC won't work right. We won't be leaving them alone in the RV for fear the AC will quit, and the dogs could die from heat, which they aren't used to. I have already planned on leaving my DH in the motorhome in the parking lot with the dogs when I need to go grocery shopping!

I have the same one...
I drilled a good size hole in the top for an S-hook and hang it in front of one of the windows! Pulls a nice cross ventilation!

Yes, it has a generator. I guess I am just worried that the AC unit on the roof won't be able to take the 115 deg. heat going through the CA, AZ, NM, TX desert. I feel like once we get to the midwest, hopefully it won't be as hot. Of course, I have never been to OK, OH, IL, PA.

Our windows are tinted, but someone mentioned using the foil heat reflective window covers. I am going to Walmart tomorrow to look for those. On my "To Do" list!

If it's 115 your A/C might get the temp down to 95 and that's about it. I know "it's a dry heat" ....

That always tickles me a bit. I live in the Deep South where humidity and heat are the name of the game. Iowa isn't any better in the summertime. Just a lot worse in the winter.
