The solution seemed obvious. The house AC is now set at 90 and I've moved into the bus for all but cooking and bathroom. It will be interesting to see if this saves much on this month's bill.

Its cloudy and cooler this morning, and we even had a smattering of rain. Maybe this stuff is about to break.

A fella can hope.
I have been Live Aboard for 7 months now and found that one AC in the front with a divider at the bathroom keeps me cozy. The rest of the Coach is too hot but I don't move around to much anyway with the back problems... It saves on energy with only a slight sacrifice. I use the reflective insulation in the exposed windows and it keeps things cool...
