How to Stay Cool on Your Next RV Road Trip
Could you imagine traveling in an RV with no AC? Here are RV tips on how to stay cool this summer while traveling on the road.
According to an article at blog.goodsamcamping.com, “RV Maintenance”
“Staying cool in your RV during the summer is a direct result of regular air conditioner maintenance. Though there are both roof and basement AC units used by RV manufacturers, we will address the most common, roof mounted unit.
The first and most frequent item that needs attention are the filters; that screen the intake air at the AC unit, or if ducted, the ceiling intakes. These are the most common efficiency robbers and should be cleaned every couple of weeks during the season. Keeping these clean cannot be over stressed.
Always check your incoming A/C voltage when arriving at a new site and from time to time thereafter. This should be read while the air conditioner(s) are operating. Voltage of less than about 104 volts can reduce efficiency and do damage to the motors. This can be read and monitored using a simple plug-in A/C meter.” To read the entire article click here.
