It's been in the 90's here this week, our ac keeps it at 77 with no problem we have 3 heat pumps but only run 2 at a time.

The one issue I do have is that I feel there is not enough tolerance between the temp setting in the thermostat control. If there is only a 1' difference the ac pump comes on for about 30 sec to 1 minute then cycles off then in about another minute it cycles back on, and continues to do this over & over. From my research most rv & home ac or heating units use 3' seperation to cycle on & off. That is cool to 2 degrees below set temp. Then come on at 1 degree above set temp. We keep both systems on "low fan cool" setting. Does any one elses ac's do this ?

If we put it on "auto" it drives me crazy starting & stopping the fan & pump several times a minute. The last I checked the fan came on 16 times on 6 minutes & the ac pump came on 3 times in that same time period. That can't be good for the fan motor, let alone the electricity it uses starting that fan every time. It takes more energy to start the fan that to keep in running.
