Bay Star AC

Planning to purchase a 2019 Bay Star 3014. If it is 100 degrees F, outside, how low should I expect to be able to get the temperature inside. This is our first motorhome and I am concerned about this in the Texas heat.

Depends on how well insulated (dual pane windows?) the RV is of course, but 80F would be about right. A/C's are set to give a 20F difference in inside/outside temps. This is so you don't pass out if you walk in or out of the cooled space.

We have only one AC on our Bay Star 28 feet.Upper nineties in Key Largo it would give us temps inside of upper seventies.Hope this helps.

Our 36 ft Dutchstar with single air and good insulation shower skylight covered both fan vents stuffed with cushions will keep it about 77 if you start early and cool it down before heat of day. I always ask for shade when in RV park. We pull out window awnings and patio awning. Keeps sun off sides.

With two 13.5K units on our 34' Canyon Star with dual pane windows we were able to get the inside in the mid-seventies with nothing on the front windshield, lower if we had the Magne Shade on it. Definitely position of the coach mattered, we tried to have the awning side or the rear pointed south in summer.

You should be fine. Also, consider getting window awnings to help reduce heat.

Just something else you may want to check out is something like MagnaShade for that big front window (at least). It works...

Prior to installing MagnaShade I was measuring 140-150 with my Laser-gun at the dash (and this was only with 90 degree outside temps) on the back of the front inside shade which was completely down all the way. Could not comfortably even sit close to the cockpit area prior to MagnaShade. That kind of intense heat is hard for the AC to fight (we have 2 ACs also).
