AC performance poll

AC performance poll. There are many threads here on JOF concerning AC performance or lack thereof. So I thought a poll was in order to get some numbers. Multiple choice.

Poll up and running. Original poll trashed as multiple choice was not working.

We had issues with the units malfunctioning, but now that they have been replaced we're good to go.

We have been camping this weekend in full sun, mid 90'S and the two ac's are working great. We haven't checked to see how cold we can get it, we had to turn the temp up because we were too cold!

Single 13.5k in our 32BHDS works as expected. I believe Jayco installed a Coleman Mach I unit. Any complaints should be directed towards the AC manufacturer.

Generally run with only one AC unit on and I'm comfortable. The only time we needed both units on was when we were in the Phoenix, AZ area and the temps were 112+. They still kept the rig comfortable.

I voted that the 15K AC cools our RV OK; however:
1) If we've just gotten set up and it is hot it will take until sundown to get the inside even moderately cool;
2) If we are in the sun and it is quite hot, the AC will keep the inside tolerable, but not cool
3) It blows a lot of cold air, but sometimes not quite enough.
4) It is too darn loud.

I will vote after our trip to FL at the end of the month. That will put the A/C to the test. I will say that in our previous TT the 15k A/C was not enough, unless we had shade to assist with the unit.
