Windjammer 3025W Air Conditioning

As mentioned, we have a 3025W, with one air conditioner. We are wondering if anyone with a similar setup has camped in Georgia during the summer and if the single air conditioning unit could keep up with the heat/humidity?

Thanks.

Deb

If you have the optional 15000 BTU AC you will still be pushing the cooling of you tt. I have 2 AC in my V-lite lot better than when I had a similar tt as yours with one AC. Later RJD

That's what we're afraid of; I guess we'll have to check into adding a second AC unit. Has anyone on here done thus?

Thanks RJD.

Several have installed a 2nd! Is your unit a 50A ? If Not it is additional $$ for the 2nd Air! Also if you have the Atrium slide that is a Lot of glass/heat! Youroo!!

I own a 3065 Windjammer with the 15000 btu a/c. During the summer months at Cape Hatteras it runs constantly until the sun goes down. I keep the shades pulled, it will maintain around 72 degrees but never turns off. I under stand that you can only expect a about a 20 degree difference from the outside temp. With daytime temps in the 90's I guess its doing ok. I have 2 small fans to help push more air. ( at least it feels cooler ). 2 units would be the trick. Maybe you should just go and purchase that big 5th wheel 50amp and 2 a/c's. The single a/c is doable, a little shade would help. It will cool, just will not cut off till the sun goes down.

Shade would be nice, but at this point we are having trouble finding any site; campgrounds which are safe and close to Fairburn, GA are few and far between. My DH needs to be in that area for work, so, a really long commute is out of the question.

I'll have to check to see if we have 50amp, I just don't remember.

An atrium slide? I don't think I've heard of that. We have three slides -- one large on the kitchen side and two on the other side, bedroom and living. I'll google the atrium, I'm curious what it looks like.

Thanks everyone for the info.

Deb

We have a 2014 3025w unit that we ordered with two air conditioners that also makes it a 50 amp unit. After already working over 37 years in minus 20 work conditions I need my cold travel trailer with all of the extra power a 50 amp trailer provides. While everyone else is sweating in warm trailers and tripping breakers we are watching tv and sipping iced tea in HOT Texas.

I've installed a second a/c in my last two campers, one had 30 amp and the one I have now is 50 amp.
If your camper is 50amp it's pretty easy.
One day job easy.
Did the second one by myself.

I think the slide they are referring to is a living room with a bunch of windows which is difficult to cool

We too have a WJ 3025. We only have a single ac unit. On a hot 90+ humid Ohio day, it can't keep up. I put black out curtains over the back windows by the recliners. This is the end we get the most sun and no shade. They helpedd a lot. I keep the bedroom closed during the day and that helped too. We could keep it about 74 which is plenty cool for us. We are adding a dehumidifier this year. I think it will help draw out the humidity so it will feel cooler inside.
