Dash vent

This may be old news to some, but I just discovered the the dash vents stay open when the ignition is off unlike my car. I was sitting in tbe passenger seat watching the rain fall along with the temp. in my nice warm mh. I kept feeling a cold draft like one of the side windows were open. I felt around until I found the cold air comming in the vents. This is a big 'lightbulb moment' for me. That's why the front of the mh is always so warm when we're parked in Palm Springs with the a/c on, or cold with the mh furnase on. The outside air enters the mh with the a/c selector switch in any position other than off.

A coaches' windshield is the weak link in insulation , next is the slide floor .
The Evans A/C system in my coach only blocks outside air from entering when in Max A/C or the recirculation position , and because it's vacuum controlled even that opens up after a few days parked. Then out comes the duct tape, along with a note to remove said tape before travel.
A little bit of a pain, but cuts down on the Calif. dust too.
