RV my lifeboat

When you live in the south the most dreaded thing is the AC going out. Well, it happened to me only both our AC's went out in our home the same day. It's a split system. Sleeping is next to impossible when its near 100 during the days. Humidity is near 100 percent.. So I pulled the Voltage around to the driveway and that became our lifeboat until the AC guy can get another air handler fan motor. Its going to be so nice to be able to sleep in comfort tonight.. last night was terrible thinking the AC guy could fix the unit today but not with a bad fan motor. Oh did I forget to mention the main AC unit went out on the Voltage last week also. The new one is due in tomorrow at CW. But we still have the bedroom AC working. Not our best week with AC's

I wouldn't waste my money on lottery tickets! :

We use ours as an escape pod. Last time was during an ice storm. Stayed nice and warm when the power went out.

I know what you guys are going thru, been in the 90's and 100's a couple weeks now, Power in the area went out, so out to the RV, took about 3 hours to get the temp down to 80.....

We keep ours plugged up 24/7 when at home with the air set around 80 Wintertime we leave the heat on a low setting. Always ready to go at a moment's notice.

I know the feeling, lost both of our units within 6 months last year, that was a chunk of change I didn't want to spend.
