Air Conditioning & Guests

Anyone with experience with needing to use the a/c, got guests who are sleeping on the pull out, and for privacy, we have the doors closed at the bath and bed area? I mean, sure, they're cool, but the airflow won't get back to us. I would gladly accept one of those "the solution is so simple, you're an idiot for not knowing it" type answers.

Get friendlier and get rid of "privacy." It makes for better air circulation. I suppose a fan could help, but easy answer is more openness!

don't know simple

Sooo you really don't want to get to know your "guests" quite that well??? LOL Don't think I know a simple solution, other than you have to open the door, and make sure you keep your jammies on!

I have a VERY simple solution. Guests sleep in the dome tent under the awning. I get the A/C.

At least that's the way we did it when the kids were smaller!

It sounds like either you, them, or the door.

We had a Wells Cargo darkroom years ago that had a single AC which did not feed the film processing room. We fabricated an aluminum duct that was fastened to the ceiling and ran into the room. It worked well, but it is not something I'd consider doing to the AS.

FWIW...

If I have overnight guests staying with me in the AS, I figure that they're so close that privacy isn't really an issue to begin with. But of course I get the morning paper in my BVD's.

It is a simple answer. YOU sleep on the pullout in air conditioned comfort, and make THEM sleep in the rear, and sweat.

Thats the way I like it

Move the AC to a location so when the door is closed, half the air goes forward, half goes to the rear...but MH already do this
