AC in our Pinnacle

We have been in several 85 + degree days on our way home from California. We only have the one AC unit in the living room and it has a difficult time cooling the area. It maybe drops the temp about 6 degrees but that's about it. Also the discharged air is cool not cold. Does anybody else have this issue?

We have been in Texas for the last couple of weeks with temps in the mid to upper 80s.

We do have two A/C units in our Pinnacle and they have no problem keeping the inside cool and comfortable.

We knew up front that we would be spending a lot of time in the South in the summer so a must for us was to make sure we had the 2nd A/C.

I have two a/c's as well and last summer in Panama City I had no problem keeping things cool inside. One a/c would have had a problem however. I do have dual pane windows also.

We have the same 5er with only one AC. It worked fine when it was only 80 degrees out. We are traveling mostly northeast this summer so it may not get put to the test. I guess we will be taking some portable fans along just in case.

It's probably a 15K A/C so it should work a little better than that I would think? With the unit in the very rear, I would bet that by the time the air gets to the front it's weak and much warmer as well.

Last year I had a similar issue where we were camping in 85 degree weather but very humid. The one A/C, while it worked, was far from working as well as we would have liked. This year I have already had a second A/C installed in the bedroom. We haven't been out yet so I can't tell if it's better or not but I suspect that it will be.

Maybe you should have the A/C checked, but if you camp in higher heat areas, a second a/c might be in order?

Two AC's are a requirement for our next 5th wheel.

It gets too hot in Texas in the summer for a single AC. Our current 30' travel trailer witha single 15K AC struggles to keep up when it's over 95.

You can probably fix the shed opening.

The front a/c is a low profile.
