You bet your last dollar it will be cool (or warm depending on the season) in our camper all the time.

But, would it be considered "vacant" if you went for a walk, trip to the store, etc?

I'd have to have that clarified by the manager of the park.

I have stayed at parks in the past that charged extra to use electric heaters/AC.

Hey, it is their park, you are just a paid guest.

If you want to live by your rules don't stay on someone else's property.

But for a few hours, leave the AC on but leave it at a higher(maybe 4-5*) temp.

We were at Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque in early October last year. 2000 site full "campground" with almost all sites no electrical service. I'd guess over a 1000 of those camped had their A/C and generators cycling on & off day and night. Against rules at night but nobody to enforce rules. Watch out for CO poisoning from your camping neighbors too. Only time ever in 4 years CO detector went off. We left the next day.

Also only a handful of porta potties for all to "share"

Balloon Fiesta was amazing though.
You should have gone with (FROG) we had it ALL! Youroo!!

We keep ours parked at our farm [easier on the logistics of parking here at the house plus we have a ready-made getaway] and yes we keep it running all the time. I set the thermostat up to 79 while we are away and it doesn't take long to cool it down plus it dehumidifies the rig.

As should be done. Good show Lexi2007.

We leave ours set on 73 degrees whenever we are out because of our English Bulldog who is heat sensitive . I also set the rear AC to 78 degrees for a backup. (Dog is more expensive than AC repair) 😎

I always leave mine on 70. I do turn off the water though just in case there is some kind of problem and generally will put down my canopy to prevent problems if we suddenly have a windstorm due to thunderclouds.

We too suspected that was the intent. Part II of the aforementioned rule was that "management would disconnect power if deemed appropriate". We never asked. It was unseasonably cool and we were out and about. However, the CG was part of a golf course complex and close to a third or more of the CG was filled with residential RVers, who very likely are the entities the rule was aimed at.

Indeed! We tend to forget these subtle facts.
