Was he in an interstate or drove down the interstate

We have a FC 25 2015. We use the car su shields in the skylight and small upper windows. We have hit 90 degree with 90% humidity. Keeping the fridge raptor below 50 is a problem. We have full awnings. Will the sun reflectors help on the late windows?

Running the AC full time set at 77F we can expect the AC to cool us down no more than 20 degrees below the current outside temperature. Currently it is 101F 12% humidity outside and 90F 2% humidity inside the trailer. Only 11 degrees of separation. Although comfortable if you do not exert yourself as to cool down it will take your body thirty minutes to quit perspiring.

The American Indian knew more about Full Timing than modern US Citizens. They moved with the seasons in the Western US. Sometimes only 200 miles for higher elevations and cooler, comfortable climate get you in the 40's to low 80's as temperature extremes.

With jobs and careers this may not be possible, but to sit still and bear the brunt of the seasons... can dampen the Full Timing attitude. Myself... we hook up tomorrow from the deserts of Nevada and into the Colorado High Country. It was a test of wills and a great experience that trailers and RVs do have limits for comfort. Limits is being modest. The opposing Winter/Summer months you had better have a plan... otherwise you will find yourself wondering why this sounded like a good idea in the first place.

Myself. Call me a Nomad. A trailer provides some comforts, but has severe limitations no matter the length, number of awnings or AC(s).
Nicely said, Ray!
