Want to see an even funnier one?

Start one titled: “RV toilets. How many won’t poop in theirs?” [emoticon]

Yep,that one blows me away.

Talked to several who actually emphasized the fact that they've never used the toilet or shower in the RV.

We had a neat freak in our camping club- never used his bath area. Spent all his time cleaning.

We are in hot and humid SC. We run ours if it is over 72* inside or humid, which is pretty much April-November, and in between if needed at other times...

Mid Atlantic region, where summers usually get into the 80-90% humidity range we have our AC going. Gets too hot and humid inside the tin box to be able to sleep.

We have RV'd a lot for over 55 years now and our RV's have always had A/C in them but I can count on one hand how many times we have ever turned the A/C on. We are both 78 years old now. We so literally hate A/C as it's noisy and can be so chilly feeling and besides we like to be outside in the shade and not stuffed inside the RV like captive puppets.

We are smart enough not to go to hot places in with our RV's in the summertime and almost always camp near a lake or water with its natural cooling effect. We live on the shores of Lake Michigan and A/C is basically never needed for our home (our home A/C hasn't even been turned on once in the last over 10 years so I don't even know if it still works and don't care) nor when we RV travel as we do it a lot and also boondock a lot and not going to run a generator with it's noise.

So basically we look at the weather and the temperature forecasts before we RV anywhere. If hot in the forecast, we simply change our destination to a more pleasant location. Simple as that! We almost never make reservations so no issues abound.

It means NO trips south in the summer ever as what fun is it to be trapped inside your RV with noisy A/C running constantly and it's just too hot and miserable to go outside. DUMB!!! Also, I am an insulation freak and we never buy a cheap poorly insulated RV or a colored RV, just boring white! It works!!! It's the key to not sweltering inside an RV and then only needs fantastic fan because heat always rises so blow it out the roof. At worst a quiet fan or two for air circulation and real comfort.

I think in the last 15 years I've probably turned my AC on a total of 5 times.
What part of SD is the trailer parked at? Familiar with the town curious where you never need A/C. Even my buddies in Clairemont need it a couple times a year. Most of those homes dont have it.

Hot/humid weather, A/C's on. Cold weather, furnaces on. Mild weather, windows open. It's not rocket surgery... [emoticon]

This thread is laughable.

People in cooler climates don't use AC.
People in hotter climates use AC.

I'm willing to bet more snow shovels are sold in Minnesota vs Alabama each winter.

Just as one last tidbit related to this discussion:

Buying and maintaining an RV is (relatively) expensive, so we bought and now maintain a small Class C motorhome that for our money does not limit us, other than not being all-wheel drive. All of it works and we use all of it's capability to be comfortable anywhere - in at least the U.S. - as required and expected.

We don't plan our destinations based on the capabilities, or lack thereof, inherent in our RV. It's the other way around - the RV must keep us comfortable - wherever we go for whatever reasons not related to the RV.

We pushed our little motorhome to the limit in a long trip through the Southern U.S. in July-August and it's A/C made it comfortable. We had no choice on doing it in the worst possible choice of months, but the RV was flexible enough to handle it.
