2013 Outlaw garage ac

We have a 2013 Outlaw. We use the garage for our dogs, but the ac is not cooling like expected. Any ideas on how to improve the cooling would be appreciated!

not much help to you, I would add a fan and if necessary upgrade to a 15 btu AC. My dad has newfs, love them. He currently has 1 black male and 1 female landseer newf. Believe it or not, the female hates getting in the pool. He bought her to train for water rescue and she doesn't like to swim. She's not fond of carting either. His rescue (the black male) doesn't mind carting but isn't into water rescue. He is using them as therapy dogs for now.

Thanks for the suggestions. We have two Newfs, one has her water dog title, the male has his water dog and we are working on the next level, water rescue dog, he LOVES it!

you can also look into getting a fantastic fan, they are reported to do wonders o help cool things down. Another thing that is good to have with pets if you leave them in the MH and go away for a couple hours is an alarm that sets off if the temp gets hot or power goes out. I forget what it is called but it is set to dial your cell phone and alert you.

If anyone figures out what the alarm is called and where to get it please let me know. I deal a lot with Amazon. We have a small morkie but we also have sometimes a granddog that is a border collie cross. That device would be great to have.

Here is an old thread from another forum that discusses this issue and device.

That is a nice looking unit. Congratulations!!
I'm afraid you don't have enough AC to do the job. You might want to see what kind of a deal your dealer will make you to either swap it out for a 15, or if your rig is wired up for a second AC, either set one up there yourself or see what your dealer would charge. It's a tough situation when the AC is under sized and everyone is suffering.
