So my question is should you run your AC in the auto or on position?
I have in the past ran the ac in the auto but camping this weekend and other campers say should run in the on position so the blower pushes air around.

Do what ever is comfortable for you.
Sold RV.... downsized to a 6x12 cargo trailer with Starlink and mini-split A/C. Easy to tow at 1200# - real happy now.

X2, ultimately it does not matter. Some campers like my HTT, do have areas (aka bunk ends) that will get warmer faster than other areas. Moving the air helps those areas stay a bit cooler.

Try it both ways and see what you like.

The in-laws run theirs in "on" position. Have for years without a problem.

We run ours on "Auto" most of the time, but I have been known to switch it to "on" for various reasons. Sometimes we're in a noisy place, and the fan masks the noise quite well. Sometimes I have trouble sleeping, and the cycling wakes me up; with the fan on all the time, the sound doesn't change, and so I don't wake up every time it cycles. Of course, if it's hot, running the fan constantly helps keep the temps consistent, or at least they feel more consistent.

Like the others said, do what makes you most comfortable, you're good either way.

We have a ceiling fan at home and I like to have the air stirred a little. It also is great to cover up dogs, drunks, those who like to talk loudly late and early, late arrivers, early leavers, well you get the drift.

I also use it move warmed air from my little electric heater into the corners during the night.

I run mine on auto all the time but I also use a small fan in the family area. I do run the fan all the time at my home though which does move the air around. Just never thought of doing it in the RV.
