Run A/C during storage?

I have my Winnebago/Itasca Navion parked at my home and connected to shore power. With the hot weather the interior temp easily gets to 100 degrees or more by late afternoon. What are the thoughts about setting the rooftop A/C to around 80 degrees so it would kick on before it heats up too much each day. It just doesn't seem good for the interior to get so hot every day. Also any thoughts about the extra wear and tear on the air conditioner from doing this?

I've been doing it for years on my 2005 Tiffin and it still has the original units. Running them is better than not running them as it circulated the oil in the compressor and keeps the seals from drying out.

If you have the ability to keep your unit climate controlled, do it! RV's do not fair well when the inside temperatures get too warm, or too cold!

Do you need to run all the A/C in your RV?

I've got a lot of solar so I open the two roof vents (they have covers) and keep the bathroom maxxair on medium going while in storage. Only issue is that is gets a bit dusty being in ag country

We have ours in covered storage, with 50 amp hookup. We turn one a/c on "auto cool" (we alternate between the front and back) and set to 83 degrees in order to keep humidity levels down. We have been doing this with 3 motorhomes and have experienced 0 a/c issues. Heat and humidity are the enemy.
