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.
