Air conditioner

Yesterday the outside temperature reached 83°so I turned on the rear air conditioner and closed off the bedroom. It was able to drop interior temperature to 78 but no lower. I will need to measure the temperature at the vents but the heat pump mode works very well. Makes me wonder about those 100 deg days.

We had 88 deg F. one day last week and the rear AC had no problem bringing the temp. down to 75 deg. with the chill grill open and the upstairs closed up.
We are boondocking right now and have to run the generator for the AC, the rear AC works fine but the 20 Amp breaker for the front AC on the generator keeps tripping after a minute or two, so that's a bummer.

I got an amp reading of 22 when running the front ac and 17 when the rear ac was running. That might be why your 20 amp breaker is tripping on your generator.

Strange, the only difference I see is the rear AC has the heatpump and the front doesn't.

Although we aren't in the 100s yet, we can only run one AC at a time. No problems with the ability to run two - but each one brings the temperature so low we almost need a heater to get warm again!! We have the 3850 and these are the best ACs we have ever owned in any RV.

You may want to cover the stair vents that cool the basement. We did and camped last week in the low 90's outside and kept our 3650 RL in the mid-70's, front 1350 btu and rear 1500.

I have the 36ret3 And my front unit seems to struggle assisting the rear unit and the temps have only reached 90 so for, and we are under some shade trees .Last week my rear ac quit. I was told by dealer had to contact ac manufacture for warranty coverage. I contacted them and still waiting on my unit to arrive to replace it. My unit went down on the 22cd. I had to go buy a portable floor model 12000 btu ac unit and vent exhaust hose out window where we could camp for memorial weekend. It done the job. Note my Rv was purchased in November 2013 so It hasn't been used that much, hope the one they send is a better ac unit.
