Staying Cool in JulyJuly Weather Forecast and Tips to Beat the Heat
The summer heat is here, and for motorhome owners that not only means prime hot camping season is upon us. We can help you find the right products to keep you cool during your summer travels.
Getting out in the sun and having fun is great, but when it’s just too hot outside and you need to cool off, you want your motorhome to be prepared to deal with the heat. Fortunately, there are some things we can do to make our summer RV camping trips more pleasurable.
Strategically park your RV to take advantage of any shade that is available, especially on the side where the refrigerator vent is located. Don’t be afraid to ask for a shady site when you check in at the campground. This will not only help cool the RV down, but your refrigerator and roof A/C will work much more efficiently.
You can also improve your air conditioner’s efficiency by keeping the A/C filters clean. In most cases you can wash the filters in warm soapy water, rinse thoroughly and allow them to dry before reinstalling. Another option is to clean the filters with a small handheld vacuum cleaner. I recommend you keep a new set of filters on hand in the event the old filters have seen better days.
Use your main patio awning and any window awnings to assist in cooling the RV down. In addition to the awnings, use your window blinds or curtains or day/night shades to help keep the sun out and the cooler air in.
These are just some of the basic tips, there are many more things you can do to help stay cool. Visit us for more information on how you can “Summerize” your RV.
