Here's the AC discharge I was referring to. You lose a little functionality of the quick cool, but the gains of the whole rig offset that. Also, as other's have mentioned, cover the vents. Ours have the MaxxAir II covers plus the pillows on the inside.

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

I have found that the reflective car windshield screens help a lot if you stand them in front of the windows that the sun is coming thru. They reflect the heat that would otherwise be warming countertops and furniture. Also, I've had to hook up a second water hose and spray cool water onto the roof and sunnyside for 20-30 minutes to help cool the unit down after a long tow on a hot day. Allowed the a/c to catch up, then it was able to maintain cool easier once the initial radiant heat was eliminated.

We've used the silver bubble wrap type insulation in the windows of our old TH. But, if you don't want to feel like you are in a cave I recommend ceramic window tint, it made a huge difference in my F350, much better than regular window tint and will be going in our new TH this year.
