Random AC Question

Hello.

Our neighbors are smoking a lot and the smoke is coming into our camper and bothering us.
Do you know if we turn on the AC if it will draw in the outside air or just recycle the air in our own camper?

I tried searching online but couldn't find anything.

Many thanks!

The air intake for mine is inside the trailer. BTW, that also would be the most efficient place... cooling the cool inside air; not the hot outside air.

Running the ac will work. For me I would have to be finding another campsite.

I think closing the windows and running the AC would work fine. It's been in the 90's with a heat index of 95 here in San Antonio recently. I suspect if I was up in Austin, I'd be running the AC anyway!

I have read that many camp grounds no longer allow open campfires. Perhaps this is the reason. The smoke does not bother me having grown up in a home heated with a wood stove but my wife is very sensitive to it.

I think they are smokers, not a camp fire. If closing windows & running A/C or fan does not work I think I'd ask for another camp site.
