Angry A/C Problems

We have a 2016 Pinnacle. Our AC bill for June was $180. We are just North of Houston. There are 3 AC units on top of this unit. When it is 95-98 outside it gets up to 86-88 in this blank blank RV. If I use the stove/oven it gets even hotter. This is a big money pit and I wish we never bought it.

Many complaints. Again, have you had the issue addressed or looked at under warranty? Most of us find that Jayco customer service is very good.
Anything else?

Do they blow cold air?

With the units that only had 2 a/c that is why they offered the 3rd. Our 15 FLSA only has two, it was 93 today with high humidity, no shade and ours stays at 74.

Roof mount A/C will only cool to 20 degrees below outside temp, at its best.

Get yourself a cheap laser thermometer from Amazon and measure the ceiling away from any vents and then the vents. My eagle has 25 degree drops when testing both units.

I saw a tip on here to remove your vents and use hvac tape to seal them to keep air from blowing into your ceiling.

You have other problems then. There's no way 3 a/c units on top can't cool that Pinnacle. I have a single 15K and I have to turn it down because it gets too cold. That's east coast weather too. 100% humidity and 98 degrees outside. Real feel of 108.

I agree that something is wrong with your units. Three units should be more than enough...unless they're all like 9000 BTU or something like that. I think you would be fine with two 15K BTU units. Doesn't make sense that three units can't cool your RV.

AC issues

Our units are 15,000 each. From what I understand 2 units are AC and 1 is a heat pump. We had the front one worked on when we first got it. Something was wrong with a sending unit(?) . So what it does is the back one (bedroom) works as it should . When it gets above temperature the thermostat kicks AC on and it blows cold. The front one (living room) will not come on when it starts getting warm. Then it might suddenly come on run a few minutes and cut back off. It does blow cold when it feel like running. If we move thermostat to the on (not automatic) that will not make it come on. The heat pump seems to run all the time. I feel like we will have to put it back in shop but that is a huge inconvenience especially considering it is less than a year old. We have had several issues with this unit and it's frustrating. We live in it full time and have animals. So everyone is uprooted because Jayco makes defective products.

AC

One thing we have noticed is at night the front AC unit aka the problem one, works as it should at night. So when it's hot outside (when you really need it) it doesn't come on.
