Cooling for desert storage

After trying to store the coach in Las Vegas without using the AC and exploding a few cans of soda, I continued using the AC to just keep the heat to a OK level and fighting to keep the humidity up. After moving into a new house and installing a permanent Cooler, in my garage, I had my old portable cooler left over. I am now using the portable Swamp Cooler as my storage cooler. This cuts the cost of cooling immensely and cures the low humidity problem.

RV is in backward for windshield replacement. Hose will be cut down to proper length when the RV is parked correctly and Cooler will be up by small storage shed that is by the rear of the RV, as it is parked.

I got it at Lowes. It is 12" diameter, 10" might be big enough, I will see when it gets really hot.


They went to the one piece windshield in late '07
