We turn it off when we are running around doing the amateur tourist thing and before going to bed, the rest of the time it is on.

Also a well endowed bank account will go a long way in helping out a first time owner.

They don't stay well endowed for long.

we leave our hot water on all the time. also was the ac on high the whole time or was it at a lower setting? it might not feel cold when the compressor cycles off. we have left ours on high for several days in the ga heat and it never felt warm

Was it froze up in the coils?

We left the AC off for a while and it felt much better when back on. Not sure if it was overworked or froze up.

Just got back from our first trip, a 3 day outing at a state park. For the most part things went well, thanks to a lot of tips on here from everyone. I realized a few mods I'd like to make if I can ever find the time (and knowledge).
