MBRIDINGER...i have the stock 12v fan that came with my 1994 model Bounder. I have it running 100% of the time right now. The solar panels keep it going all day and the batteries keep it going all night. It never drains the 4 golf cart batteries more than 10% during an evening.

I would be happy to have 110. I will try my $20 fan idea first and see. After I get back from Flagstaff next week. thanks for the reply.

Thanks. Good to know, I have the fan in the bathroom but it sounds like a helicopter.

Hot in the RV

I live in Utah during the summer and Lake Havasu City/Parker in the winter. It has also been over 100 F degrees here in Utah for the last several days. If money is not an issue, I would invest in a turbo kool rooftop RV swamp cooler depending on your location. If you live in dryer part of Arizona with less humidity you'll be loving life. I have Coleman's version of the RV swamp cooler. It's 72 inside my rig most days. Of course my Motorhome also has good insulation. Park your rig under a tree and take advantage of what ever shade you can. I lived in Yuma for 3 1/2 years. My first AZ summer it was 138 F degrees. if your like me and find the RV stores to expensive shop around on eBay or browse the Craigslist ads for your area. The sooner you have a good working AC or rooftop cooler, the happier your going to be. In southwest AZ where we get intense humidity from the monsoon season in the summer, evaporative cooling doesn't work. So I had to go the AC route instead and be hooked up to regular shore power. If your running on limited battery power, I'd go the rv swamp cooler route since solar panels cannot power a regular AC unit. the swamp cooler only requires 12 volts of DC and sufficient water in your fresh water tank, so you can keep cool anywhere. I tried surviving the AZ summer without a working cooler/AC. I just couldn't do it. It was not humanly possible.
