Not camping per se but I'm here with my TT parked at home in a car port and I'm surprised how well it's doing. Temp outside was 108+ today and the 15K AC is easily keeping it 75 inside and even the Norcold fridge is staying cool. In fact, I had to turn the fridge down because it was only 33 inside.
In fairness, the trailer gets very little direct sun but still, I'm impressed.
Thankfully, we have central air in the house otherwise we'd be in the trailer.

EDIT: OK, temp now 107 and one whole side is in the evening sun. After my wife made dinner in there and used the oven (she just had to have tater tots with her cheeseburger..). AC has slipped to 80 inside (set to 75). Turned fridge down to 4 and it's 35 inside.

I guess we would not have used the oven if we were staying in it and I could turn on the second AC.
Still, pretty good performance for an overgrown styrofoam cooler.


Wait a minute.

If I understand you correctly you are keeping both your camping trailer and your house cool when the electric grid in your area is strained to the max and people are dying from the heat.

Please Shut the AC in the trailer off and just stay in the house.


Sorry Charlie, you're too late. 78degree high today in Seattle. You can go back to your regularly scheduled program. Which should include minding your own business...
PS, this aint Texas, (lol, I was down there when their power grid actually got strained) and less than half the homes around here even have AC anyways. Maybe he was being nice and letting his family or neighbors stay in the camper for the whopping 3 days it was hot here....

We moved to our RV for a night, as the power was out. Many in our community have whole house generators. The gen sound definitely increased.

A local news commentator said there are more registered boats (watercrafts) in Oregon than homes with AC units. Don't know if its true or not, but it seems about right.

We are in the rainy season here in south Florida. The rain cools it down from the 90s to the low 80s with 60% to 90% humidity. MOSQUITOS!

In many places it may be above 100 in the day but it cools down at night. Here in Florida it may be in the 80s at night.
