Thanks for all the tips, folks...but trying to cool the TT so late on a 110 degree day proved to be a fool's errand.

When I arrived at the ranch about 5:30pm the TT was a stifling 114 degrees. I opened the vents, got the box fan going, turned the a/c on set at 72, then took a cold adult beverage with me as I sat under the shade trees and waited. After 30 minutes I went in to see what progress the a/c had made. A/c was no longer on. After a valiant try, it gave up and threw the circuit breaker...leaving the TT at 112 degrees.

I can take a hint. This baby wasn't going to cool down anytime soon, so the dog & I jumped back into the truck and headed home. Moral of the story: On days when the temp nears or exceeds 100 unless I get out there early and get the a/c running BEFORE it falls behind I may as well stay home.

I went back early the next morning, fired up the a/c and managed to keep it relative cool all day even with the outside temp hovering around 100. And for my effort, as usual I was rewarded with some magnificent sunsets and sunrises.
