RE: Are my A/C's working correctly?

Thanks for the response. As soon as this hurricane goes by and I can get the RV opened up again, I'll check and see what that temperature reading is.

Are my A/C's working correctly?

I have a 2018 Fleetwood Pace Arrow 38N with 2 13,500 BTU A/C's. The RV is a little over 39 ft. I am new to RV'ing and don't really know what to expect concerning the cooling capacity of these units. I have heard they should be able to keep the coach 20 degrees cooler than the outside temperature. Back in July, we were at the Outer Banks and it was hot. The outside temperature was 91 degrees. The inside temperature according to the display reading was Zone 1 95 degrees and Zone 2 88 degrees. I know that these readings were incorrect and that the interior of the coach though uncomfortable was not that hot, but I did not have separate thermometers to verify the actual coach temperature. A few weeks later during a service call, I had the dealer check the A/C units and they said they were working fine. I was not convinced, so this past week I decided to run a test. I had the thermostat set at 75 degrees for both Zone 1 and Zone 2. Over the last few days, I have registered the following results with the RV closed (entered only to check temp) and all shades pulled. I was using separate thermometers for each zone as I know for sure I can't trust the temp reading on the display panel. 1) Outside temp 84; Zone 1 77; Zone 2 75 2) Outside temp 88; Zone 1 77; Zone 2 75 3) Outside temp 83; Zone 1 75; Zone 2 75 4) Outside temp 87; Zone 1 80; Zone 2 79 5) Outside temp 85; Zone 1 76; Zone 2 76 6) Outside temp 90; Zone 1 82; Zone 2 80 7) Outside temp 89; Zone 1 79; Zone 2 78 8) Outside temp 90; Zone 1 81; Zone 2 75 I am concerned that there were several instances where the A/C's were not able to maintain the 75 degree setting even with the RV completely closed up and no one going in and out the door. I have, again had the dealer check the A/C's and am being told that they are functioning correctly. I contacted Fleetwood with questions about the cooling capacity and they were absolutely no help. My question,am I expecting too much from these A/C's and is this pretty typical or do I have an A/C issue that is going to make camping unpleasant when the weather turns hot again? Thank you all in advance for any comments you may have.
