Sorry I hit wrong buttons , run it until it is satisfied they are designed to run continually unless your compressor is weak.

Good luck,

Run it until you're cool. Don't listen to that RV shop. ACs are meant to be run just like generators.

We often go to Lake Havasu in the summer with daytime temps. over 110 we run the air conditioner for weeks at a time, it may last longer if we didn't use it, but why have it.

I can't imagine we just got back and I ran both units on continuously for 8 days fans running 24hrs a day works better that way.

Our main AC has been on for 2 months now. It has a DRY mode which keeps the fan running to help lower the humidity. The front AC is set on 75* so it only comes on during the heat of the day. Keep the filter clean, pull the cover twice a year and hose the coils off and let it run.

That's as bad as the previous owners of ours being told that they should not run any air (dash, AC, etc) while traveling and they need to have all the windows open while going down the road instead .......
