Funny but true.

Even when we're not camping and the wife and I go to the trailer to drink wine and play cards " often " , first thing she does is crank the AC.

In the 7 years we have been full time, I can count about 5 times that we have not used the A/C.....

Pretty sure they need to be started so parts remained lubed. For those of us with onboard gennys its common to run the A/C when you cycle the generator.

No RV now, but when I had them (3 total) I lived in Ewe-stun, TX. Easiest to say I didn't use the AC in January. Other times, default was to use the AC: for heat and humidity April - Sept, mostly just because it was warmer than comfortable in Feb, March, Oct - Dec.

On the 3rd and last RV, a specific requirement was for ducted AC. Probably turned out to be one of the reasons we used AC much of the time in that unit.

The last camper I bought I actually removed the roof AC and caped the hole. I drove all over the country so this saved a little wind resistance, weight and kept my height a few inches lower.
I put it back on for an August FL trip and ran it just at night for sleeping.
I do not spend the day in a camper, the camper is a home base for adventure or whatever I am doing on vacation and not sitting in a small area looking out a window... lol

Kind of funny topic.
May as well ask "Who wears a jacket when they camp" or "Who turns on their furnace?"

Well if you camp late spring through early fall in the south I would assume the answer would be "never"

We camp end of March through end of October here in New York.
Night temps fall to almost, if not, freezing.

We then turn the furnace on.

I use mine often in summer. I don't use it much in spring and fall.

I am just a weekend camper that stays close to home. Last weekend I went to a small county park near me that doesn't have many amenities and is 10 bucks a night for electric and nothing else. (You can't even get water there) I was surprised at how many people were at this park. It's usually deserted. This caused the park to be more noisy then usual so I ran the AC at night so I could keep the windows closed.

Yes, we have it and if we need it we use it,...to the max if the situation calls for it.
