I just read the thread on RV Acs increasing the bill, but I never thot keeping the 24ft with slide out would increase my home AC bill by $160....our kw is 10cents per. Might consider keeping slide closed while its parked at home. Any suggestions?
cause its so new to us that sometimes we go out in evening w/ cocktail and watch the news. And, yes, we are in high humid weather in south louisiana. Will certainly check into big dehumidifier....how big is big. No more AC 24/7 for sure. we did put a large fan inside and I wanted to close the slide, but hubby thinks it would not make a diff.Wjy are you running the RV air? U less your living in it it just seems silly to me. Now, if your concerned about humidity, go buy a big dehumidifier and run that until your ready to depart.
The electric usage is related to the square feet so closing the slide would reduce the bill. But not by the same proportion. When the compressor and fan kicks in is when the highest electric draw occurs. We sometimes like to watch a movie in the RV at home so we turn the A/C (or heat) on an hour before we go out.I wanted to close the slide, but hubby thinks it would not make a diff.
