Use our generator when hot also - works great - wouldn't trade that view from the front for anything - why we call MH "Seemore." Love it

That's a nice solution. Your dash AC should be able to keep up cooling the smaller space.

We run the generator and both air conditioners. No reason to be uncomfortable. Plus, we worry about our dogs who ride in crates in the dinning area.

If you have kids in the back then the drape won't help them. I have noticed a lot of dogs and cats riding on the dash. The DRAPE It is a fuel efficient way to heat or cool the front area quickly. Our first Chev Van had the drape, and provided the same function for 80,000 pulse miles of seeing the USA in the Hot summer months. We tend to avoid the summer heat now when we have a choice.

What is the drape? Is this something you use while driving? Our doggies are in kennels in the front of the coach behind my DH's recliner. I would never put them in the back of the mh. It is too noisy and warm. This way I can keep an eye on them while we are traveling. I would never let our guys ride loose. If there were an accident or emergency they would be frightened and it would be hard for strangers to help get them out of the motorhome quickly. With them in their crates...you just grab the crates and out they go and they won't be running loose.

Run the house air and turn off the dash air in the desert or when pulling long grades in hot weather. Surprising how much cooler he engine runs.

If you're like most, your generator isn't getting run NEARLY ENUF to keep it in good working order. Run the generator and be comfortable. You're this much $$$ into it, what's a few more $$ gonna hurt? It's good for you AND the gen!

Don't forget to turn off the water before you head out on a trip!
