Maybe............ I've had some luck running our 15K Mach 8 on a 15A circuit - if nothing else is on the run. Much better success when I drag a nice fat 10g extenstion cord out and it's on a 20A circuit.

If you're going to use a 15A line, I'd suggest keep the cord as short as possible and invest in a good extension cord to keep the resistance down.

We've noticed that too. On our old Class C the fresh water tank was mostly inside the coach and stayed cool. On the '16 Greyhawk, the tank is outside and underneath.

Driving down a highway when it's 95+* outside and we'll have hot hot water coming out of the cold tap.

I have a 2016 29MV Greyhawk. Just spent 3 months of summer on the east coast. Very hot inside the coach when 90 degrees plus in the sun.

I am going to replace my fantastic vent in the master bedroom ceiling with another roof top A/C unit.

Has anyone ever tried to run wiring from the master bedroom (powered) roof vent down into an accessible area?

My plan is to run a dedicated circuit from the A/C unit in the roof with a breaker outside.

I will use the original 30 amp plug to run 99% of the motor home and an additional 30 amp circuit for the additional A/C unit.

I will use a male 50 amp y adapter to two 30 amp female plugs at the pedestal.

[QUOTE=The awning also helps. The one thing I don't have, yet, is slide toppers. They also make a significant difference as the roof of the slides is one of the worst insulated points in the entire unit.[/QUOTE]

We just ordered slide toppers for reasons having nothing to do with keeping cool. So glad to hear that they also help with that as we are a bit challenged in that department.

We bought the heatshields for the cab as we like to leave that area open. The grandkids like to sit there to read or goof around with electronic devices and we otherwise feel shut in if we use the privacy curtain.
