Well, 1 week at my house and 3 weeks at the dealer and it still does not cool down. I spoke to Jayco's costumer service manager and was told the dark color and 1 air conditioner was "NOT DESIGNED FOR THE SOUTH"!
I live in Louisiana and now have a brand new motorhome that I cannot use unless I plan on going north for the summer. The dealer still has it and I'm hoping they can do something for me but Jayco will not do anything.
Don't know if it's poor insulation or the dark color but I would definitely get 2 air conditioners if you plan on using it south of the Mason Dixie Line. I don't know if all brands are alike but be sure it cools properly before you make your purchase. Jayco will not be any help after you drive it away from the dealer. They told the dealer service department the same thing they told me.
It's definetely not a brand issue per se. The main issue is that it's simply too much RV for one AC in southern summer heat. If you have a darker color then that isn't doing you any favors.
Other than the Seneca class of class c motorhomes, I have not seen any with 50 amp service to support 2 full Acs and even most smaller/entry level class a's don't have 2 ACs. In talking with our dealer and doing some homework I figured out that I could add the 2nd AC in our Redhawk albeit a bit of a hack. The dealer won't do it but did refer me to some in the area that do. Other than getting the unit on the roof I the install seems within my ability so I'll give it a shot in the spring.
