Welcome from another Texan, but now living in Nevada. I'm guessing one AC and it's ducted to bedroom. Make sure the front slide operated down air vent is closed. I had an '02 Coachman Santara with the one air setup and wasn't real impressed with cooling in bedroom and other than when we were boondocking, I used a 110 volt 18 inch fan to help push air to the rear. I would suggest if its that new, take it to the dealer to see if there is an obstruction in or a collapsed duct. Best of luck with it.

I am not surprised that a 13.5 a/c IN TEXAS will not cool the bedroom. Thats the price one pays for living in God.s Garden of Eden.

Wait until Oct , it will do fine.

Welcome from Dallas!! I'll second what Mick says -- Its hard to cool anything down when its 107 degrees for almost three months straight!

Quiet frankly, a 30' in Texas needs tow A/C units. You will not keep it cool during the day. You can help by pitting Reflectix in the windows, park in the shade and get use to 80 deg F plus in the summer.

You can add another smaller unit in the rear and wire it out on a separate 20 amp circuit.

We had a 30' 5th wheel that we purchased when we lived in Ohio. It was equipped with a single 13.5K BTU Coleman A/C. We had no problems with it up north.

When we moved back to SE Texas, the combination of heat and humidity (sensible and latent heat) meant that, once the temperatures reached about 90 or 95 degrees, the temperature inside the 5th wheel would follow increasing temperatures outside the 5th wheel just about degree for degree.

We traded that 5th wheel for a 36' that was set up for 50 amp service and had the 2nd (bedroom) A/C added before we took it off the lot. That 5th wheel cooled much better even though the insulation was nowhere near as good as that in our current 5th wheel.

I also have a 2011 Concord 300TS. If its hot, the one ac in the Concord will NOT cool the coach. I have found that a couple of fans will make it bearable, but not cool until the sun goes down. Coachmen really needs to look at this problem. The coach either needs to have another ac or at least a bigger unit.
It does fine if the temps are in the low 90's or high 80's, but once it gets above that, your going to be hot. My DW has refused to camp with the temps we have been having and to be honest it's not much fun when you are burning up. So we either go to a cooler area or the coach stays in storage.

It is not just the Coachman that has problems with A/C and Texas summers. Any 30' RV will not keep cool on temps in the 90's and in the sun. All of the RV manufacturers are up north and really do not understand summer.
