Would you leave your air conditioner on all day?

If you were at a state park and were going to be gone from 8 am until 4pm in afternoon and it was 100 degrees out, would you leave your a/c on all day even though you wouldnt be there? I know that it would take a couple hours to cool it off when we come back in in the afternoon. hmmm

Yes. RV techs will tell you that it might be blowing 20 degrees cooler than outside but it's keeping the humidity down to cool off when sun goes down.

My friend from NH just paid over a $100 to learn this. He was worried it would wear out. He is a 98 model blowing with a 17 to 18 degree drop. Says it stays cool now running in the day here in WV.

If I did, I would turn the thermostat to 80 to help decrease the load on the electrical system in the cg. It doesn't take it long to get the temp down to 75 then.

I don't really know how to answer this.

Maybe I don't understand the question.

I found it sort of ironic that the poster in post #2 was named Carrier.
