Robert L,
Just as information, I have a 2001 Monaco Dynasty and I never run my AC system when in storage. I do not want to prematurely wear out expensive components on the roof AC system as I would rather maximize the AC's service life by using it when I really need it during camping.

I have kept my MH's stored in the open with a RV cover and currently I have it under roof cover in the Dallas/Ft Worth, TX area and have never seen any influences of problems either inside or out, including woodwork. Of coarse, I make use of the maxxair vents to help keep air able to circulate inside the RV.

Further, I do not keep any food or perisables in the RV as I do not want to encourage any critters to come into my RV for food of any kind.

Just my thoughts,

We live on south west florida so the A/C is set at 80 and the home style fridge has not been off since the day we bought it. The inside temps in a MH in florida can reach over 110 degrees and combined with the humidity will take its toll on the interior over the years. All windows are covered with aluminum insulation. It has added less than $25 a month for electric use.

We do not run the AC.

We keep our MH in a big garage so it is out of the sun. I place three big tubs with water in them to help keep some moisture in the air so the wood doesn't dry out.
