Is my dream crazy?

Airstream's are not cars and they have power even if the mains fail. The 12v system will run fantastic fans for hours they are also thermostat controlled on the newer AS. Get a surge protector low voltage protector they will switch off automatically if shore power goes low or high, the good ones will also switch back on when power normalizes. Protecting your circuit breakers from tripping. The 12v system will work regardless of the park (shore) power situation. The fantastic fans will kick on automatically when temperatures get high. You have to set the level on the the thermostat control on the fan(s) but that is easily done. The fans are powerful and will keep the airstream from becoming a hazard to your pets they may get warm, but they won't be in any real danger. Also, get the zipdees. Awnings will help keep temperatures down. Live the dream! It's a beautiful dream.

Vent fans only work if there's an adequate source of fresh-air-INlet. (keep a fwd window open unless you like the smell of your black and grey tanks.)
