Sounds like you're staying at the wrong places.... I haven't ever had one charge electric in addition to the regular fee in 7 years of owning RVs.

3 ac units would be about 45 amps. On a 50amp rig, you have 100amps available. Not a big deal.

It's not just about humidity. Our bunkhouse has very little insulation due to slideout and outdoor kitchen. Add-in poor airflow (longest distance from main unit) and you have a warm room. Giving that room its own ac will really cool things down and give me total control. With that 3rd unit, I can turn down (up) the other two for a balance in temp.

Add another 10 feet to your rig, don't run the car a/c while traveling and let the camper get to 100+ degrees inside and you will understand.

My two ac units are skewed to the front. I have plenty of capacity, but the back doesn't get good airflow and stays warm/hot at times.

A 3rd ac is an easy way to have total control. Plus, I like to bring the temp down NOW, not wait 4 hours...

I'm toying with adding a 3rd unit in the garage. So far I can run main and bedroom a/c's and be cool using a fan to get the cold air from the bedroom into the main room.

Most every camp spot we went to NO SHADE for the "big rigs"...

Unfortunately bringing the temp down NOW does not allow for humidity removal.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

Who cares. The humidity will eventually come down because I leave them running. In the mean time, I want the temp to drop.

I'm a weekend camper. When I unhitch, I want to get the party started, not wait for a perfect climate in 24 hours..
