RV Air Conditioning Essentials
The AC in your RV is often taken for granted. When you’re in your home, you simply set the thermostat at 68 or 72 degrees and you just let it cool. The difference between an RV and a home is that at home we are climate controlled. We don’t let our homes get up to 120 degrees inside or down to -20 in the winter time. Walking into an RV that, with the ambient temperature of 100 degrees outside, could be 120 inside – RV air conditioners have limitations.
