2014 Kodiak 240 BHSL
I know this subject has been pretty heavily discussed but I still have one question. What is the normal temp difference inside to outside on a working unit?
We live in the mountains at 7K feet and very rarely camp in warmer areas but currently we are camped out and it's in the upper 80's (I know, not bad but hot for us
) I'm looking at my inside/outside thermometer and outside is 86 and inside is 82. That seem to be about the spread no mater what the temp is if it's in the mid 80's or above (ie 89 then inside 85). Is this pretty normal?
I should also point out we came off of a 50 degree night, thermostat is set to 67 and the AC is running non stop until sunset. It almost never stops blowing.
I do have cold air coming out of the vents (3 vent, bathroom, main area and bedroom). At first it was all blowing into the bathroom and the bathroom was very cool. I went and bought a vent that I could close off most of the way to direct the air to the other vents and we set up a small fan in the bathroom to pull that cold air out.
Prior to doing this we were only getting about a 2 degree difference.
The real reason for the question is to see if it's worth the trouble of getting it looked at. As I said we do not do these warmer temps often and I know if I take it in I'll likely loose it for a month +. However if there is a problem for certain then I think I'll give it up for a month to have it operating correctly. I just don't want to get it back and have it cooling at the same rate or maybe just a degree or 2 better.
So back to the original question. What should I expect for an inside temp when it's say.......87 degrees out?
