I'll corroborate. We live in the inland northwest less than a hundred miles from the Canadian border and we're currently enjoying the 90s with days of triple digits due in the near future. That's unheard of this time of year.

Guess what? It's hot here, too! Not so much this week but it looks like another heatwave is coming next week. With humidity.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

The prospect of 4 months of heat and smoke w a month of pollen allergies on either end forced my hand. I met w my HVAC guy today about adding the condensers to my home system. I didn't think it would be necessary to add cooling at 6300', but I guess I have to.


Ask them about adding a mini split system, sometimes its cheaper, and can give you a heat pump option in milder cool weather.
It will both heat and cool, totally independent of the existing system.

Upper 70's and dry in the Colorado High Country (I live at about 9500 feet.)
Very nice in the summer, but we pay for it in the winter! [emoticon]

Fans and water. Probably not enough if boondocking.

Finally broke down and bought an iq3500W gen. It was long overdue as we have in the past stayed home when dry camping. 90*-100* in a 5th wheel or TT without air is brutal. Even though here in Oregon it cools down a fair amount at night it was getting old for us oldies having to shower or do some light cooking inside the trailer when the inside is as hot or hotter than it is outside.

Really impressed with the gen. I got a sound meter app for my phone and @34' the gen is 62db on eco and with the 13,500 AC running it's the same exact 62+/-db's.
It barely revs up when the Ac's turned on.

$750 will get you a brand new 4500w Champion inverter generator that should easily accommodate your air/con.

Reality is they haven't got a clue what the weather will be much more than a week out.

See the pre-season hurricane forecast. It's nothing to be off 50-100% on the number of storms and that prediction is almost as likely to be high as to be low. That suggests they really don't have much of a handle on long range forecasting.
