THOR #15052
Air Conditioner Not Performing

I have a 2019 Hurricane 34J. I have had cooling complains with the front AC unit. On trips to Florida and home in Tennessee I find the front AC can only knock 5 degrees off the outside temperature i.e. if it is 90 Deg outside it is 85 deg inside. This is with a setting of 71 deg. with shades drawn shut. The rear unit will still make the 71 deg setting and cycle on and off as expected.
CW replaced the front AC under warranty but it not performing any better. My question to all of you is have any one else experienced the same issue meaning to me that the AC unit is undersized.

Same model here. In Galveston it was a little hard to manage the cooling but I started to do some small tweaks. Insulating the the cold air and the hot air return. Making sure there was no air escaping in between.

Pray for a shades area and use the awning.

Get it nice and cold early in the day. I do this at home too. Most of my rear vents are shut and the rear AC is used to support the front. I run them on high when needed and don't let it just use auto.

Shades pulled shut at least on the sunny side. Might modify the covers to the AC inside and add a vent. Need a little bit more time to see if that's really necessary.

You might want to read this thread before doing anything else:
Try this first before you buy 2nd AC unit or bring your unit in for AC service.
