Start off by planning where you are going to park within your destination. Choosing a shady spot is no-brainer, but if you only have partial shade, try to park your RV so the refrigerator vents and the A/C unit are covered. Also, try to park your RV so the largest windows receive the least amount of full sun.
Covers, Insulators and Sunshades
Do your best to cover your widows and keep areas where light can get in shaded. Utilize your awning and blinds during the day. Keep windows closed during the day. Some products that you may want to consider are windshield cover, door/window shades, skylight insulators and vent covers. These are all items that are going to seal and block out areas that sun gets in and cool air may seep out.
Things You Can Do
Keep your A/C filters clean to allow for proper airflow. Don’t constantly heat your RV by cooking all of your meals inside. Instead, plan a few meals that you can grill or otherwise cook outside. Outdoor cooking will keep your RV cooler, but it’s also a great way to enjoy nature while you eat. Swap out regular light bulbs for LED lightbulbs that stay cooler and use less energy.
Happy future travels to you and stay cool!!
