youtubeCurrently in our area and beyond we are experiencing a heat wave that is shattering temperature records. If you are fortunate enough to be out camping, hopefully your coach has air conditioning. One of the joys of RVs is that most of them have at least one air conditioner. It is days like these that we really need these units to function properly. While our little corner of the world is a true paradise, we only get really hot days for a few weeks (or months if we’re lucky) of the year. My wife grew up in the Okanagan, which is usually the hottest place in Canada in the summer months. Therefore, she has a high heat tolerance, so she prefers to simply open the RV windows most of the time. Yesterday she turned on the air conditioner.
