Hi from AZ. . . funny how we worry about different things ! Out here in AZ, there is NO humidity, so we keep a 3 gal open pail of water in ours, as does the local AS dealer. I keep both F Fans cracked, but the additional issue there is blowing dust/dirt with is fairly common out here. . . It only got to 108 at mi casa today, worse tomorrow........... . . be safe, Craig

Fantastic Fan open all the time with MaxAir hood, windows open when not raining which is most of June through August. When stored in garage during winter Fantastic Fan open and dehumidifier running.

I have full hookups at my home. Weather permitting the vents and windows are open when hot. If I am going to working in or around the trailer might use the AC or heat if cold.

We have all windows covered in aluminum foil backed bubble insulation and this helps immensely. You can get it in a roll at Lowes. Our rig used a roll and a half for all the windows and skylights. Label each window cover so it will be easy to install when needed. We store them under the bed. In addition we insulated the insides of the cabinets, closets and under the seating and all areas we could get to with the foil.

I plug ours in and run the AC set 78.

We park ours in SoCal desert outdoor storage in full sun and the thermometer says there have been temps as high as 110 degrees with no trouble so far in seven seasons. We leave only the shower vent open.

Windows would be security issue. I do trust the auto feature of our fantastic vents and would consider leaving the forward one open (the one not over the bed) if you felt you wanted more. We have solar, so no battery run down concerns.

I just leave the roof vents open all year in outdoor storage. Max Covers keep out rain. Never have had a drop even in driving rain storms. Problem with leaving windows open is the dust that comes in with wind blowing against the trailer.

Mine sits in the driveway with some sun and 95 degrees.
I have never done anything and 6 years later there seems to be no trouble due to heat.

Last year while at JC for some work on our trailer I asked the service manager about this, since I too was concerned about keeping it closed up in 90+ temperatures, and he said it is not a problem and quit worrying about it.
I do keep ours on the driveway plugged in with the AC on because my wife likes to hang out in it sometimes and we also put the the dogs in there when they get in the way. They love snoozing in there.

We could open the Fantastic Fan cover and let some heat escape because we have the MaxxAir vent cover, but so far I haven't.
We've discussed whether or not we should, but have done nothing.
In the future, I might go out to the trailer a day before traveling and open the vent when I turn on the refrigerator just to help the refrigerator.
The fridge seems to cool in about 12 hours even with the extreme heat inside the trailer.
Maybe it will cool quicker with a little less heat, although I don't think it matters much. You are basically decreasing interior temperature from 105 degrees to 100 degrees.

When we store our 2014 Classic and 23D (under roof), we have three five gallon buckets of water inside the Classic and two inside the 23D to keep the hickory cabinets of the Classic from drying out in the heat as well the hickory modifications in the 23D.

We live in 100% humidity so I don't think wood drying is an issue here.
My hickory wood does look dry sometimes.
Maybe I should use some Old English furniture polish on it?

That's a collectors item. You paid 100k+. Have you looked into indoor storage options?

I want to build a shed for it one day. Every time I get the money something else happens. New a/c condenser and evaporator, new roof, new car, washer/dryer, bathroom tile- It costs a lot to own and maintain a house and keep the wife in a decent ride that won't break down or quit on her leaving her stranded.

Thank you

Thank you for all your thoughts and current workarounds. We have opened the shower vent for some air circulation for now. Will consider some of your other suggestions.
Thanks again
Gina
