Hot sleeper in A-Frame Questions

My wife, a hot sleeper, worries that in an A-Frame the sleeper in the back corner of the queen bed has no airflow as the dome window above, of course, does not open. Two Questions: Have others found this to be an issue? Are there mods to that back dome to make ventilation possible (i.e replace it with a flat window and screen)?

I have noticed that the cross breeze from the two open windows is felt much more by the person sleeping on the side of the bed closer to the cupboards than the person sleeping by the dome windows. So I would suggest that she sleep on the "cupboard" side; also, leave the windows open and leave the fan on at a low speed.

A fan is your best bet to improve ventilation. If you are dry camping, try a 12v fan.

I am a picky sleeper. This solved the problem:

Fan-Tastic 01100WH Endless Breeze Stand alone Fan


Runs quiet and consumes only about 1.5 amps on low speed. The cheaper fans are noisy.

I installed a dual outlet to plug it into.

I also monitor the battery voltage with a plug-in voltmeter.

Have an endlessbreeze also, an excellent but rather pricey problem solver, for both on and off the grid.
