102 Degrees & Boone Docking

We are boone docking at the Fredericksburg Elks (Monday night). DSC_0014 DSC_0015 DSC_0016 Real nice people and said for us to park on the grass.  No hook ups.  We arrived about noon and immediately turned on the generator and ran two ACs.  We had to leave about 2 PM for about 3 hours.  It was 102 outside and 97 degrees inside the coach when we returned.  We turned off the generator because we were setting on grass and the generator had already burned about a 1 foot square in it.  We were afraid of a fire is why we turned it off while we weren’t there.  We got the generator going again when we got back and cooled it down to the low 80s in a couple of hours.  The night time was in the mid 80s with 91% humidity.  We turned off the generator about 10 PM and went to bed.  At least I tried.

The next morning we left about 7:30 AM via car to visit our son again.  Again no generator.  We pulled out about noon and it was hot & humid.  We turned the generator on going  down the road along with the dash air.  The outside temp was running close to 100 degrees and about 80 inside after about an hour.  Of course it was only about 1 1/2 hour trip.  We got hooked up to 50 AMPS immediately and turned on two ACs.  One hour later we were 102 outside and 80 inside and going down slowly.  We left the rear slides in and closed the door.

See ya….
