How Are My A/C's Doing?

I have a remote temp sensor outside under my curb side slide and it was showing 96 degrees outside a little while ago. I was nice and cool inside so I decided to see what the air temp was coming out of my a/c's. I used a Klein Infrared Thermometer and my rear 15K a/c air was 63 degrees, while the air from my front 13.5K a/c was 62. The temp for both was measured right at the air grill. Most of the air for both is ducted, but I opened the grill just enough to get a little flow through and then measured the temp of the grill after it had time to cool down with the flowing air.

I'm pleased.

The difference between the outside and inside is an indication of how well insulated your RV is. You should be seeing a 20* difference between the return air temperature and the supply air temperature. In other words if your RV is 72* inside then the temperature coming out of the supply outlets should be about 52*. The main thing is you are cool and comfortable! (this isn't directed at anyone, just some info!)

I'm no expert, but those temps sound great to me !!! We recently went from a "old" 13.5K AC to a new 15K AC and the difference is Fantastic !!!!

Good explanation! As you described, the limiting factor is often the insulation of the RV. Pretty thin walls and roof, a bunch of slides, and a lot of glass is not very efficient.

It's a whole lot better than a tent or a pop up!
