I bought my trailer new in 2005. I think in the last 15 years I've probably turned my AC on a total of 5 times. And three of those times was just curiosity to see it it still turned on.

Is there anybody else on here that never uses their AC?

For us it depends on the outside temperatures. We normally camp in the spring and fall so we don't use it much at all. Open windows are our preference.

But we do use the fan for white noise at night.

Spring and fall is fine without A/C, but camping in midsummer in direct sunlight... camper just becomes an oven.

We usually camp at more rustic, non-hookup campground in spring and fall, but in the middle of summer we go for the electric hookup in case we need the A/C.

Oh, there have been summers where we just didn't need the A/C. In that case, I always make sure to turn it on at least once during the year to make sure it is working.

For us it's all about humidity.

Warm and humid, AC is running.
Moderate temps,dry air, windows open.

Are latest trailer has ducted AC and is MUCH quieter than our previous with center blast AC so we can actually have a conversation.

Wife and I camp year around.

Depends on outside temp & sometimes noise. Prefer the sounds, or lack of, in a CG & also fresh air with everything open.

It's just like the a/c at home, you turn it on when it's hot/humid.

This year we will camp in July for the first time in 6 years, so we'll probably use it.

It all depends where you are at. Here in the deep south it is a must except in the middle of winter. That said there are many times in my travels to the northern or higher altitude parts of the country that it was not needed.

It strictly depends upon the ambient temperature and if we are in a campground.....which is rare! If it’s warm outside and we have electricity.....the ac’s get used. We carry them everywhere we go......may as well use them! [emoticon] memtb

You must not go too far inland (San Diego OP). Head towards Temecula in August....you'll use it.
