Wow, that's hot!

Hot enough to cause a dog serious distress.

The dogs are not in the trailer, we are just testing the unit and setting the notification levels for our up coming trip. We are headed for cooler but more humid places. They are enjoying the pool this week.

Hi Richard,

I haven't read the entire thread, but did you see the tech article in the latest Airstream Life magazine? It's the one that explains how to rewire a Fantastic Fan to open and turn on at a set temperature.

That's a good option but;
Fantastic fans were not an option in 1975. Installing them would mean the loss of my overhear lighting.

Getting an update every 15 minutes while we are away from the trailer greatly increases my comfort level. The monitor will tell me if the trailer has AC power as well.

Oh, I knew you wouldn't leave the dogs in the trailer in that heat!

Just commenting on how hot it gets. Yikes! Could suffocate man or beast.

Yes the summers are tough. The hottest it's been since I lived here (late 60s) was 122.

Richard,

I am interested on hearing how the temperature alert worked out for you.

Remember heat rises.

I would mount the sensor lower, say at the highest point the dogs would be at.

This would give you a more accurate read on the temp the dogs would be experiencing.

Just a thought.

Good discussion. We tried the AC a few days ago while in the pool for a half hour. They hated being alone with the AC running.....loud and scary? I like the fantastic fan idea.

My kids show rabbits at the local fairs. They are more sensitive to heat than even dogs and there is NO ac at the fairs. For the comfort of our rabbits we freeze soda bottles that we've put water in and place them in their cages. This allows them to either cuddle up to the ice bottle or move away from it. When driving we buy battery powered fans and place them on the rabbits. I'm sure the same tools could be used for a dog. Fans and ice. You could even freeze water in a bottle and place it in their water to keep it cool. Then set up a fan in a part of the camper to help them cool off, make sure it's battery powered.

We bought an RVNanny to monitor the temperature in the Airstream; it worked well for us. Here is a forum post with the details
