I live in the Dallas area where the temperature exceeds 100 degrees many days in the summer. I don't full time and my coach sits for extended periods in the summer. I don't do anything special and have not have any adverse effects.

I live in the Phoenix area with temps well over 100 degrees. I put a cover over the roof vent to prevent rain (when we get it) from entering then open the vent about half way and crack a window in the front and rear which allows some circulation. About once a week I run the generator and to exercise it I run the a/c so that also helps. The ability to circulate air helps a great deal.

Most RVs, boats and cars sit in the sun all the time. I don't think you would have a problem, they are tough. Crack a window or two and a vent and you should be fine.

hi.thanks for the input..i found a storage yard with 30 foot covered spaces which i will use..i'll stick out a few feet but most of the rv will be under cover..i can crack the windows and vents better... i plan to run the generator and engine monthly..they also have a 15 amp shared electric to periodically charge the batteries..we feel pretty good about the arrangement..thanks agian..jim..
