Old issue revisited. AC?

I have been so engrossed with so many other larger issues that I have not paid attention to all of the threads on this fine forum. Has anyone yet successfully installed a third AC on the RW? I of course have the 38GK. Today is not what I consider a REALLY hot south Louisiana day. 92 and low humidity. Both AC's are running wide open and cannot get it any lower than 76 degrees. This is just not acceptable in my opinion. I may be expecting far to much. I have read all the other quick fixes. But have yet to have my GK at home long enough to check those issues and fix them if possible.

Let us know what Redwoods resolution is, I have done a number of improvements and today sitting here in Williston FL (Ocala area) we are maintaining 72 degrees with ease.

I may have missed something that will help / improve our A/C performance / efficiency, I just modified the items I found that I thought were affecting our A/C performance but would sure like to hear if Redwood has any other ideas !!!

I agree, a third a/c is nice (I hace 3 on my coach) but I believe this might require a energy management system due to all the electrical draw. It's my understanding, a few 5th wheels ( the new Luxe is one of them) have this type of system but I don't think Redwood has gone down that path yet. It's way over due so hopefully they're looking at it.

Dave, do you have the new 100A plug? I heard some of the campsites are starting to provide them.

No Brad....we have the 50 amp plug. The energy management keeps everything running as it should.

I just tried to look it up - looks like they just use two 50A cords that plug into a twin 50A pedestal. I guess there aren't too many out there - a few Prevost and Newell. I thought maybe it was a new type of plug but I guess not.

Redwood says they have gone with a Power Management System on the new models with 3 A/C units due to the amp load of all the electrical appliances and 3 A/C units/

As of yesterday when I checked, we are now offering 3 AC's and an energy management system :-) Heat pumps standard on 2 of those AC's, 3rd heat pump is an option.

Tell Luxe to do their worst

Awesome!

So what exactly does the management system do? Does is check or monitor loads and prioritize what can run so as not to overload the 50A?
