Low AC air flow and water flow?

Why does it take FOREVER to cool the hauler with AC, and Why is my water flow so crappy when I have good flow to the hook up?

Is your rig new? Check the screens in the aerators at all your faucets. Most everyone on here reports plastic shavings clogging the screens from building our rigs.

I know this doesn't effect your problem but also check the screen at the pump. When not connected to outside water & using the pump those chips sure effected my pressure.

I have a new voltage 3005 and I'm finding it hard for the unit in the kitchen to keep up. The bedroom is cold and you can get icsicle in the front but the kitchen living area and the garage stay warm. It catches up at night. Down here in Louisiana its 95 degrees as well. Seems to be better in the living area of I open the mass dump but when the vent is closed for central air it can't keep up with the front AC. Is this normal?

My V3605 is the same. Open the mass dump & keeps the kitchen/living area comfortable. With only one outlet in the garage I don't ever see how it would cool that area. I use it as a garage so I just shut that outlet. Front A/C works great we can hang meet up there.

Well that worked great rat. Now the wife has to wear a sweater lol. I will probably end up putting on a third AC next year and have it wired to run off external power from the outlet in the shore power connection at the campground

I have a 3005, my ac is the same, only difference is my son stays in the the garage. I found if I open the overhead cabinets between the living room and the garage it really helps cut down the temp back there. I only open 1 door on each side.
