Don't forget that the Escape Rally is in Osoyoos in early June. You could hang around after that and drink B.C. wines until she's up to temp.

Exactly right!
(Although, I didn't know that there was a "larger Dometic unit" - (I haven't received our "build page" yet.)

That has already entered my mind - now I need to place it in my wife's mind.

Again...she might be afraid that the larger AC would make her too chilly!

She grew up in the Colorado, Wyoming corner of Utah, in a house without much of a heating system, and she never wants to be cold again. That's why we're living in Florida!

You have to do your own conversion to Fahrenheit.

regarding heat and insulation: don't forget that insulation helps keep things cool, too, as well as helps with quiet a little.

Not buying it in Canada, it won't. Especially in BC. Taxes for booze are outrageous.

I feel bad for you folks North of the border. RV anti-freeze is about $3.50 a gallon (not on sale!) South of you. Cheaper than cheap wine! At the END of the season, I can buy it for about $2 a gallon (US). And, that's for the "name" brand stuff... like 20/20.
