    September 20
    Looking for a tip regarding summer travel in a Class A coach. Do most travelers run the roof AC unit(s) while going down the road (of course generator must be running) ?
    Or is it the engine AC enough to keep the coach cool in 95 degree-plus summer weather ?

      September 20 Great question! I've wondered this same thing. So it doesn't hurt anything to run the generator when going down the road, is what you're saying? Hide 2 Replies

      September 20 Dash only. Here is our solution. Insulated drapes that we pull while traveling, mounted on a spring tension rod. It keeps the dash air up front where we need it.

        September 20 Thank you MRJohnston this sounds like a great idea that keeps the cool dash air contained to the "cockpit" area.

      September 21 Yep. Run Genny and house a/c when hot and turn on the fans over the dash to move the air faster!

      September 21 We appreciate the great feedback !
      I'm not sure what is the connection (if any) between having the insulated drapes behind the driver/passenger and compressor/belt failure ???

      Hank & Shirleen
      September 21 By having the drapes there, you are trying to cool a smaller area. In my experience, we have had trouble with the engine A/C’s not holding up.
