That's the scrap piece over the sofa
Front from outside, looks just like your vehicle sunshade just supersized!
Normal everyday looking thermostat controls our heat and air.
We usually keep our thermostat set on 77 during the day and 72 at night in the heat. With our fans it works well for us and especially if we are not getting direct sunlight all day long. We also have an awning and as long as it's not to breezy it is down and keep the fridge side of the coach cooler. It helps a lot!
Our new and older fans
Since we have little fans makes sense we have a little heater. We actually have two of these little space heaters and they were great even in our sticks and bricks homes so we naturally brought them in the RV. I mean when we are "hooked up" electric at most places is included in our slot fee so heating with these is economical. Propane cost us and we have to unhook and go fill up if we get low so using the provided electric makes sense to us! We are looking to upgrade our electric heaters to the kind that have oil in them. I think they would be safer and that always makes me feel better being safe! I think I would like to find one similar to this type.
Current space heater
In addition to heating and cooling we also have a dehumidifier. It was needed after we were having some condensation issues in the cooler months earlier this year. It has also helped with the extra humidity in the heat too! It was not something we ever thought we would need in Sunny and does take up a bit of space but it is a good thing for the overall health of our coach.
Heating and cooling is a constant. And we have tried on several different occasions to sleep with the windows open it just never works well. MiRV suffers allergies and that's usually just not a good mix with open windows. However, we do open up the door on cool mornings and evenings once in a while and when we stop while traveling we usually open the windows and doors instead of run the generator, it's just easier and more economical.
