(True story) And sooooo..... I asked my brother-in-law.... while sitting around the camp fire with family... "Do you know that your camper door is open, with your AC on?".... "Yep" (Is what he said)... "It is too darn hot around this fire and I am trying to cool it off out here"......

(His wife walked over and closed the door)

why turn off? I don't want to come back to a sauna. I want it comfortable when I walk in, not a few hours later.

I would shoot for 65 but the DW would over rule me. So 72.

Don't like my Frosted Flakes melted.

I usually turn mine on when we set up and don't touch it until we are packing up to leave. It takes a long time to get everything in the trailer cooled off (the space inside the cabinets, etc). I have noticed after about 24 hours the ac has to run a lot less to keep the trailer cool even though the outside temp is the same as it was the day before.

Very inaccurate comparison. A car cools off much quicker than a camper. And I'm not planning on sleeping in my car like I am in my camper.
When the temp gets above 90 I turn the ac on at the house....and it stays on while I'm at work all day. Do you propose that everyone should turn their home ac off also when they leave for work?
