After a few searches on the internet and talking to other RV owners, we decided to install a mini split air conditioner because the factory rooftop A/C was not enough to keep us cool
A couple years ago, when we first went into lockdown due to the pandemic, my husband decided to purchase a fifth wheel RV. This was not a purely impulsive purchase as we had discussed buying this RV so that we can take family vacations around the country. And quarantine was basically the perfect time to do just that. When we purchased the camper, I did not fully know what to expect. I grew up in a big city and camping was not part of my experience. However, my husband has been camping many times in his life. My main concern about sleeping in the RV is that I would be able to sleep comfortably. And comfort for me means a nice bed and an air conditioned space. Thankfully the RV has a queen size bed, and it also has its own air conditioning system. Although it had A/C, I quickly realized that on days when the temperature was brutal outside the A/C wasn’t as cool as I would’ve liked it to be. So, on our first camping trip, my husband had to purchase a fan, so that I could sleep better at night. Although using the fan was a saving grace, it was only a temporary solution. After a few searches on the internet and talking to other RV owners, we decided to install a mini split air conditioner because the factory rooftop A/C was not enough to keep us cool. Best of all, after watching a few videos my husband was able to install it by himself. Installing that mini split A/C was the best decision that we could have made.
