Indiana mid to end of August, HOT? or not bad?

I didn't prepay for the FMCA rally so no chance of a 50 amp. I am debating on going as long as I can get the 30 amp, although if it's really hot that will push the A/C to the limit trying to keep the coach cool.


Is The fairgrounds in Indianapolis usually really hot mid August? I know the Verizon man that was at the rally in Essex Jt came from that area and was glad to be away from the heat in July for a week.

Each year is different as far as weather so no real telling - however, this has been a hot summer so far. As far as 30A I think you could do just fine. You won't be in the RV during the day much because of all the festivities. At night, just run the bedroom air conditioner and you'll be o.k. It would be a shame to miss it if you were really planning on it. Good luck and have fun!

Your gonna die. It's unbearable on Labor Day weekend up there at the NHRA races. Run the generator around the clock. Skip it and go to the IRV2 rally instead.

Either that or go to a camp ground close and drive to the rally. I'd rather have full hookups unless it's under 50 out.

Yes this summer has been brutal!!

I am traveling with a dog that has CHF and he needs it cooler so I would have to run the A/C all day if it's too hot. On that note I don't do well in heat either. Just got finished a mountain trip with 70's days and 50's nights which was just ideal for me.



Does Indiana get a muggy heat or is it usually dry? I have never been down that side of the state, just the north part so I am clueless.


I looked at averages and it seems that it is 80's day and low 60's nights but with this summer the way it's been all bets are off.

So maybe not a good idea or wait until I get closer and pray for snow lol

I wonder if they use generators for power supply there and if they are reliable. I know brooksville Fl this past winter had big kohler generators to supply the electricity and some were saying sometimes they don't always work as expected, or shut down. There was no problem this year though, at least on the one I was on.

Indiana, as well as illinois and the rest of the midwest, is typically very humid in the summer.
