One A/C

How does one ac work on 100 degree days? Does it keep cool or run all day?
I'm wondering if I should get the 30DS with 1 ac or wait until the 32 DS comes out with 2 acs.

I am no expert.
We ordered a new unit and got it in April.
35' with one unit upgraded to 15000 btu.
It has been a VERY hot dry summer here in North Central Idaho.
We have found that if the TT gets hot, it takes a long time to cool it down,
But of we turn on the unit before we "need" it, it seems to keep up.
The bedroom is not as cool as the rest of the trailer.

So, we will get along fine with what we have, but if we order again, we would go two units.

I think with any RV, no matter what type, if they offer 2, get 2, if they offer 3, get 3. Better too much than not enough. Anything over the mid 20 foot range in my opinion needs at least 2. Mine comes in at around 30' of box and we're running one 15k AC. Granted, we have deleted skylights, dark windows, and reflective insulating foil in all but 2 windows, but we can maintain 70 degrees in 100 deg temps. Without the minor mods, it barely could keep up.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Spent 8 weeks in ours in July 2012... with 1 A/C unit. It was miserable until the A/C caught up about 10:00 PM. I would like to buy a Winnebago Ultra Lite 28DDBH but they have answered my email inquiry with a resounding NO as to adding a second unit... so I'm looking at other brands. Their larger BH (37' ) model can get 2, but not the one I want...Ten Thousand Philistines...

One a/c

Thanks to those that just replied. After I went back further in the forum, I found a cornucopia of info. Bottom line is I will wait for the 32 footer with 2 a/c's. Unless you live in Canada one unit will not keep you cool. At least not my 61 year old wife.

I think that's a wise choice. You'll be happier with the 2 AC's for sure. Welcome to the forum by the way.

If you have 50 amp service it may wired for a second A/C. Installation could be fairly easy to the bedroom vent.
