Been full timing in Texas heat in our FLSA for 7 months. We love everything about this RV floor plan but the AC is horrible. During the day, our front LR reaches 89F anf runs constant. The bedroom cools well but tge other 2/3 does not keep up. Jayco videos even brag about constant temps in their testing but the FLSA fails. The more of ud that contact Jayco, msybe they will devise a solution. Dont accept substandard in a 90k RV.

Has anyone researched installing a third AC? Concerns for roof load, electric load, overall weight?

Same problem

We have a 2015 and our A/C does not keep up either. Have not talked to our dealer yet. Waiting for the end of our camping season. Problem only happens when outside temperature is above the 80's.

The MACH 8 only weighs 90 lbs, but the issue would be the lack of roof bracing & framing also running the elec would be a royal pita.

It is very reassuring that we are not crazy as Jayco seems to think. My husband now refuses to camp because of the A/C issue. Our dealer has trimmed, disassembled & everything else everyone has suggested but to no avail. When it gets above 80 outside, the front unit (which cools the living room & dining area), runs constantly & will not cool to set temp. The back unit (bedroom) cools & cycles as it should. We are not sure about the dealer looking into whether Coleman had problems with some units. You would think the manufacturer would notify the dealerships if that was the case. PLEASE keep posting complaints about A/C units. The more consumer's that do, the greater the chance of something being done. As previously stated, we are in the woods in northern Ohio where it is known to be humid in the summer. This is so not acceptable!

We just went on a 2 week trip with ours 36rsqs pinnical we found that the living area had trouble keeping cool but I think it is because it's the quiet air system in the area between the ceiling and the roof gets so hot where the duck work goes through then it's warm up the air before you come out the vents we put a small fan in the bed room to blow out in to the living area

That is a great idea, thank you for that, except it should not require fan/s to assist the cooling down process. If there is a design error it should be fixed correctly & the owner should not have to fight to get it done. Our dealership has been in contact with Jayco again & are working on some possible solutions. It is just a shame it hasn't been able to be fixed. Our dealer is as frustrated as we are & they are being the brunt of our anger. We appreciate all they do & continue to do.

I don't have that model, but my 36REQS in Texas heat does well with a few practices. First, keep the dark shades closed, 2nd keep the underbelly closed, the vent in the stairs opens up into the underbelly to help climate control the underbelly which allows outside heat in. My unit has a ceiling fan, so I run it in hot weather. My Pinnacle is a 2012, so it didn't come with LED lighting, so I changed all the hot halogen bulbs to LED and they run 20 times cooler than the originals, the other thing that has helped is to insulate the vent in the ceiling. I also close the louvers on the A/C unit in the ceiling to where they are barely open to force more air out the duct's. I also aimed all my supply vents to cool the exterior walls. Hope some of this helps.

Sorry. Been out of reach last few days. As for an update on our unit. Talked to the owner of our dealership yesterday and he told me that Jayco was comitted to making us happy even if it means adding a third unit. There will be issues associated with this, like it will not be tied to duct, just dumps in front room, electrical, because they can't tie into original controls, etc. But as for what they have done is replaced the front Unit and cut in more ducts to let more air in unit. Unit cools down in the mid 70's and cycles. Outside temps in NE Texas has been running in the high 90's. I will meet with them next Wednesday and now I am thinking maybe duct is sized to small to let air from both units out. I have an instrument that will tell me CFM's out of each duct and I will look at Colemans specs for total CFM's out of each unit and compare. Dealer told me they could not tell much difference when units were switched out. Difference Came with more outlets. I will keep ya'll posted.
