Using A/C While In Storage ?

My son in law has his TT A/C always on, set at 80 deg, while in storage at his house. Was thinking about the same, for humidity and temp. inside the TT. I have gone inside the TT on a hot day in southern Ga. and the temps way over the 100 deg . mark .Have used a dehumidifier, but just makes temps higher.
So , i have the power there to run the a/c, would set the thermostat at 85-90, is this good or bad for the life of the TT and Air Conditioning unit !

I know it will be bad on my electric bill !!!

I live inland SoCal. In these hot summer days I have the air conditioning on 80-85 degrees in the coach while in storage. Just as I do with the sticks and bricks if leaving home when traveling in the coach.

I also keep mine plugged in and set on 85...the TT is on a pad right next to the house. It really doesn't run that much even though it has been hot here. Sometimes not using something for extended periods can cause damage down the road. JMO

Maintaining a controlled climate in your unit is very important to its longevity.

We follow the same basic routine, the coach stays alive/powered while it's parked/stored.

We even keep the genset on automatic when not plugged in.
