--So long as the dew point is low enough. Efficiency diminishes up to around 50 degrees, then a swamp cool is pretty much worthless.

In AZ, the swamp cooler works very well...except during monsoon season. Then it is just more wet air on top of the wet air from the rain. very efficient in dry air areas.

As long as there is sufficient outside air transfer, it does work well. If you close it up, not so well.

Things you see in an RV Park

The truck tires are 66" tall and 43" wide. The trailer tires are 48" tall and 31" wide. Both most likely have 20" rims. We always ran 25 psi in our field applicators

Or a trampoline First all terrain 5th wheel I've ever seen. Amazing engineering task. Do the tires provide the suspension or are there springs under there somewhere?

OK silly question: How tall is that thing??
