Keeping Cool.

As I'm filling out park reservations when we get to BC none of the parks have power. This will be in July and I know it will be hot. They don't allow you to run generators at night.
Just wondering what tips you have used when you are without Air Conditioning.
So far, I have ordered screens to go over the cab windows.
A reflective pad to go over the front window.
Ran a 110 volt fan for 7 hours off the inverter without issue.
The window openings are actuated by a scissor system. I saw a hack where you removed the window, shortened the spacer between the scissor arms allowing the window to be opened a couple of inches wider.
Any other suggestions?

Go to somewhere like Lowes and get some Reflectix cut it to fit into any windows you don't plan on opening, stuff works great.

Make sure you park where there is shade and keep things like skylights covered. your rig will only be as cool as the outside air. Sometimes sleeping outside under the awning is great. There is a small cube type of swamp cooler being pushed on TV that might keep your bedroom cool. JMHO
