10 Cool Tips for RVing in a Heat Wave with No Shade
The last week of June 2021 saw an unprecedented heatwave in the Pacific Northwest. Even here in the usually mild oceanside town of Campbell River on Vancouver Island, the temps reached over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. To combat the abnormally extreme heat in a campsite with zero shade, I had to use all my RV cooling tactics.
Our Keystone Cougar fifth wheel is poorly insulated with only 30 amp power input and a single 13.5K BTU air conditioner. Not really suitable for the hot temps! However, by utilizing these 10 tips, we were able to stay relatively comfortable inside the rig. Both us and our refrigerator managed to stay cool. Even on the hottest day of the heatwave (104.5F) the interior temp only reached a max of 80F. More important than that, our ice cream and ice cubes didn’t melt.
