Hello ALL...
97 Monaco Windsor..
Quick question.
Even with the gen running and a/c full blast blowing cold air my rear bedroom gets hot eventually heating up the whole RV. I'm assuming the engine heat is the cause.
Does anyone have the same problem?

Diesel 1000 Onan.

I wonder how much more fuel is consumed with dash air running while driving rather then running a diesel generator W/2 AC units?..

I don't know how much you've driven in 100+ degree weather but as for me I don't care how much fuel I use running the generator and air conditioners.

Sorry folks been out of pocket a few days. I Love the idea of the crock pot!! Went out today and bought a small one and now I'm rethinking our food plans for an upcoming trip to South Dakota. We will be on the road 8 hours the first day so I'm thinking stopping to a cooked meal will be fantastic!!!

Great stuff thanks. Can we run generator all night to keep the a/c running to keep us cool if we don't open any windows?
We have to stay in truck stops overnight during the next week in Montana and Washington where nighttime temps will be in the high 70's.
G man.

Hah... We have had ours for 2 weeks now, and I think the generator has more hours than the engine. Kids like to be cool when travelling

Does anyone run their generator at night with the windows closed during hot temperatures? When there are no hookups.
