Making it cooler in the desert

YET another idea....

it's 110 in vegas...I have my gen slid out and running....I noticed it was way cooler in the front of the rv as opposed to when the gen is slid in....you can feel the heat comming straight up off the gen, so that must be heating up the whole dash area...

is that something that everyone already does....or again...just me

Sure. Just make sure you leave extra space from the vehicle in front of you

That is great to know! I was in 108 last week by Merced and ran the generator all day, and it felt really hot up front, I thought it was the windshield! I will open the slide, that makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the tip.Regards

i'm sure everyone probley knows this, but if your coach is setting in the sun, air off, and you wanna try to cool it down...start the gen, turn the air on and open ever roof vent and fan... then open every cabinette door and drawer...
after about 10 min..close every thing up.. if not you will have half the space of the coach with trapped hot air...this works, have had coaches not cool down till the sun went down...this trick works...
