A/C's on an Intrigue Ovation

I was just reading a post on the class A forum inquiring opinions on two or three A/C units. I thought I'd pose my specific question here. I'm looking at 2003 to 2005 Intrigue Ovations, two and three slides. One I'm looking at is a two slide, three A/C. No question about that one, it should cool superbly. But what do Ovation owners have to say about a three slide with two A/C units sitting in the open sun with highs between 95 & 100 and lows in the lower 80's. If I can keep the temp inside at 74, I'm happy. Also would like to hear what you have to say about a two slide, two A/C.

I have two slides and three airs. 42' light color. We have an affinity. Very good insulation. In my experience, once the inside temp is cooled down two easily keeps you cool. For hot high humidity days you want three airs. Size matters though. 36' two likely fine.

Thanks B Bob. The Ovation is a 42 and I do camp in a few hot and humid places from time to time. I've kind of been saying in my mind I want three. Maybe I had better stick to that.

If you have three ACs, you will still have enough cooling capacity when one AC goes out. If you are stuck with one working AC, I doubt it will cool the coach. The ACs will go out--it's just a matter of when. We have replaced all three ACs, and the one replaced in 2006 needs to be replaced this summer.

Also check to see what AC units were installed. Our 40' Allure with two slides, had two 15K BTU units installed, and we can cool the place down quick with both on. Then maintain temps with only the rear unit on and closing off some of the vents in the bathroom/bedroom area (I always leave one open in the bedroom) pushes more of the rear AC's air thru the shared ducting. This keeps the loud AC fan noise in ther rear of the coach, and yet most of the time this keep us comfortable in the front. We've only had one time when temps were about 105, that we had to turn the front AC on for 10-15 mins out of every 60-90 min period, to help bring down the temps.

We do have and use the ourside windshield screen shades, for both privacy too, but mostly this is the largest area of heat gain/loss from the coach. Can still see outside too.

You might find your rig your looking at with the two AC's, had the optional 15K BTU units.

Best of luck,
