What temp. should air be from AC ?

Just curious if there is an all around temp. for air coming out of AC into camper.

Mine is about 56 degrees.......at least at first start up this spring.

do you mean holding a thermometer right at the outgoing vent? The air would be moving right? So that would mean some what of a wind chill. Ours comes out at around fifty also. But on the thermostat - if I have set it at 70......oh nevermind.... Ha ha! I will investigate this further...

You won't really get a fixed temp out of the a/c. It should be able lower whatever the temp is by about 20 degrees. Maybe a little more, maybe less depending on the age of the unit and if your a/c is in the shade or direct sun.

20 degrees is the accepted standard for the drop in temperature for an AC unit.
Now that said if you get 15 you are on a smaller unit you are doing good. It has nothing to do with what the thermostat is set at it is only the mechanical capacity of the unit which is limited by the amount of Super Heat the refrigeration gas can carry.

Thanks.

So if it is 86 degrees inside and my vent is blowing at 57 (I checked with a thermometer) then this is ok ?

There should be a difference of about 18 to 20 degress, measuring the air temperature as it immediately enters the AC and as it immediately exits the AC.

Toadly, dude.

Now, paint your roof white, and inside the TT will drop another 10+ degrees, or so I've read on here several times...

Thanks, yes white..........I'll start on that in the morning.

Andy and everyone, thanks. I was a little concerned because it was 86 degrees in my 31 ft. excella and it seemed to take a good while to cool just a little but then I checked the temperature coming out it was 57......guess that is good and had I let it run for several hours it would have cooled it down to a comfortable temp. inside but I chose not to waste power and AC until I go camping.
