Question Where do you set your A/C?

I'm curious as to which of the two settings do you get the best performance:

1. Cool (the fan runs all the time and the compressor kicks on and off)

2. Cool Auto (both the fan & the compressor kick on & off)

You get better results with cool (fan on) since it helps hold an even temp.

We use Cool Auto We don't care to hear the fan noise. With 2 ac's we can control that based on where we are in the rig.

We use Cool. Auto most often. We will use just Cool if we are in extreme heat as we get better cooling as the fan moves cold air for a while after the compressor kicks off...

I use Cool Auto too. The least I have to listen to that fan running, the better.

We use cool/auto almost all the time on both units. Just seems to let the units rest a bit. We haven't been in extreme heat with it yet, so time will tell.

I usually get the best results to set it to whatever the DW wants it set on. LOL
Most of the time cool auto.

Boy isn’t that the truth.
Cool auto fan set at low for both units most of the time.

Enjoy the journey
