I bought a 1993 35' Fleetwood Bounder about 10 years ago (have a 2017 Greyhawk now) with two air conditioners and had 30 amp service. I don't know if it was original equipment or added by the first owner, but there was a system that controlled which air conditioner worked. You could set it for only the front, or only the rear, or you could have it cycle between the two air conditioners. It worked OK, but there were fairly large swings in temperature between cycles which you did notice throughout the night. I'd suspect that there is something like it available somewhere. An added advantage is that it worked with the generator.

So has anybody gotten a 2AC unit? Is the coach still 30 amps? Or do the 2 11k units work in tandem w/ the 30 amps but 'thou shalt not run the microwave'?

We have 2016 31DS. Although we haven't travelled yet in very high temps, Eric have found it works well. Wondering why they put on black covers if they can cause a problem with heat absorption? Anyway, we have had some issues with our MH and I have to say I am very surprised that you haven't had satisfaction with Jayco. No matter what issue I have called on, they were able to resolve it. Don't know if you have called Jayco customer service yet yourself, but if not, call ask for class C tech support and speak with Bill or Randy. These two guys have gone out of there way with us.

The humidity is the problem for you southern guys. That one a/c simply cannot remove enough moisture to make it comfortable, especially when it is really hot too. Here in the west, whether I'm here in Montana on a hot day or down in the desert our one a/c is sufficient due to the low humidity. It may run a lot and may not satisfy the t-stat on 90-100 degree days, but it removes the little humidity there is to make it totally comfortable.

We have a 2016 GreyHawk 31DS with one a/c unit. Currently, we are in Florida and have been since the end of November. We've had to run our a/c fairly often here on rainy humid days..and on those days where it was 85F and not too humid. We've never had an issue with the a/c not working properly. Our RV is light colored and I think that is a big help. Also. I follow the sun, keeping sunscreens and/or blinds drawn when the sun is beating on whichever side. The awning with Shade-Pro screen is a fantastic boon.

I like that Shade Pro screen. That's got to help w/ heat absorption on the awning side when the sun is blasting it.

*add it to the list*

Hello, We have a 29w with two ACs. Just purchased a few weeks ago. It is 30 amp. and has a energy mgt. system. How does it perform, since we just purchased, have only used in 80 degree weather therefore I can't give a true opinion yet. But when we turn both units on full till, the coach got cold really quickly. No heat pump on this set-up.
