Until I retired, we always used a programmable thermostat that turned the heat down and the ac up while we were at work and only turned it back to the desired temp about 45 minutes before we got home. I just don't think we should use energy needlessly. When we leave the camper with the ac on, it is set to 80 from which temperature it is not hard to lower in about 30 minutes when we return. JMO, you, naturally can do whatever you please.
I just don't like wasting anything.

I would bet most of us wouldn't think twice about leaving the A/C on at our house while we're gone all day. What's the difference?

for sure but we only do this if we have to leave our dogs behind.

YES

Yes I would. I would leave it set at 80 if I didn't leave the dogs and 75 if I did.

I tend to leave mine on at a very low setting when electrical is available. What annoys me is those who leave theirs running day and/or night seemingly powered by a noisy, exhaust spewing generator right next to my unit. Actually had my CO detector go off when camping in an unserviced "campground" last fall in just such a scenario. My wife heard it, I didn't. Thanks to my wife I'm still alive, but she missed out on the life insurance payout, just barely!
