Thank you for the update please keep us posted on the outcome. We are going through the same issue with our fsla that we picked up just 3 weeks ago. We are lucky if we can keep the temps down around 82 or so in front and that is with fans going. Which in my book is unacceptable in a 90 plus unit. Also when they were advertising maintaining a 72 average temperature in extreme heat. Maybe they should bring the test unit down here in the sun in Houston.

Thank you LL for the update. Jayco has been in contact with us also, finally. A 3rd unit would be acceptable to us IF it wasn't the loud unit like the bedroom one is. One of the reasons we purchased this unit was because of the whisper quiet A/C that is installed. Of course we had no idea it wouldn't cool adequately since all our previous Jayco campers were fine. We are not sure what the outcome of this will be. We just hope it is to everyone's satisfaction. Please keep posting as we are curious what your results will be.

Most of your heat issues are coming thru your windows!!! Had a similar problem on a trip out west a couple years ago. Spent a good bit of time hanging thermometers around to determine the biggest issues. I didn't have insulated windows which I assume you folks don't either. I had a 60% reflective tint applied to all of my windows. Made a world of difference!!!! The only down side is that it makes the interior a lot darker. That is still very acceptable to us. I paid a commercial outfit to install it for $500. If I installed it, it would have been a disaster!! Money well spent. Trust me, most of your heat is coming in thru you slides if you don't have toppers and your windows!!

Ela1948, our windows came with heavy tint from the factory. When the lights are on @ night it is almost impossible to see inside. It is VERY dark in the daylight in the camper due to this. We also have night shades which we use for privacy. Our campsite is located in the woods so direct sunlight does not factor in the problem. If by toppers you mean slide awnings, we have those too. I am sure there is heat infiltration through the slides even with the sealing system on it. When it was windy, we have checked for presence of drafts. None found. All suggestions are greatly appreciated, so thank you for your solutions.

When I was hanging thermometers around, it was very apparent that the slides with there thinner walls and windows were the biggest problems. I am really surprised that if you are truly in the shade with two AC's working that you would have that much of a problem. If you are in 100+ degree temps, air conditioners will only drop ambient temperatures roughly 20 degrees. Meaning that 80 degree temperatures would be expected if its 100 outside. Certainly hope that you can find a solution that you can live with.

We did not do the thermometer test because the unit is brand new. We were advised the 2 slides in the front living room may not be insulated as well due to weight problems with the camper having 5 slide outs. Probably part of the problem. During the day we have to use the interior lighting due to the darkness. Jayco is addressing the problem so we are pleased with that. Our temps in northern OH in the summer normally do not reach the 100 mark. When the outside temp was 82* the interior would not get below 74 & would run constantly. That is not acceptable to us. Again, thank you Ela1948 for your suggestions.

Do you have the whisper quiet? My uncle has whisper quiet on his 2009 Open Range. He has fought the same issue in his camper. He finally found the problem when doing routine maintenance. The Amish Boys missed the center of the hole by two inches. Also from my experience on mine when it was brand new I had a bad freeze sensor so the evaporator coil would freeze and not thaw. These suggestions may of been mentioned previously but thought I'd see if this helps.

I am camped right now in Manitoba Canada with our 2015 36 REQS Pinnacle. The temperature today was 32 degrees Celcius or 88 Farenheit. The A/C in this unit is useless. The coach temp was set at 75 but the actual temp would not go below 80 with both a/c's running, although the bedroom did drop to 74. After reading these reports from owners I hope Jayco is listening and comes up with a fix.

I was camping with 85 degree temperature outside and the ACs both running nearly constantly to keep the rig at 78 degrees. Seemed pretty whimpy to me. I am not looking forward to hot temperatue camping.
