Tips To Keep Your RV Cool During The Summer Heat


As the summer heat kicks into high gear, it’s crucial to keep your RV cool and comfortable while conserving energy. Below are valuable tips to help you beat the scorching temperatures. From optimizing your cooling system to taking a refreshing dip in our pool and parking under our covered RV sites, we have everything you need for a cool and energy-efficient stay!

RV parks can be a great option for summer camping, even with the high temps.

Optimize Your RV’s Cooling System.

Insulation: Ensure your RV is properly insulated to minimize heat transfer. Add insulation to the walls, roof, and windows to keep the interior cooler and reduce strain on your cooling system.

Shade Screens: Install shade screens on your RV windows to block direct sunlight. These screens not only reduce heat gain but also allow for better visibility and privacy.

Ventilation: Keep air flowing by opening windows strategically to promote cross-ventilation. This allows hot air to escape and fresh air to circulate inside your RV.

Tip: You can spray down your RV with water to reduce the exterior temperate by 10 degrees in under 60 seconds. Take advantage of our full-hookup sites and cool your rig down during the hottest time of the day!

Embrace Energy-Saving Techniques.

Solar Power: Take advantage of our RV park’s sunny location by utilizing solar panels on your RV. Solar power is a sustainable and cost-effective way to generate electricity, reducing your reliance on traditional power sources.

LED Lighting: Upgrade your RV’s lighting system to energy-efficient LED bulbs. LED lights produce less heat, consume less energy, and have a longer lifespan, saving you money while keeping your RV cool.

Programmable Thermostat: Invest in a programmable thermostat for your RV to regulate the temperature efficiently. Set temperature schedules to avoid excessive cooling when the RV is unoccupied, conserving energy.

Take Advantage of our Premium Amenities.

Enjoy the ultimate refreshment by taking a dip in our sparkling pool at Blue Sky I-35 RV Park. Our pool provides a perfect oasis for cooling off during the hottest parts of the day. Soak in the crystal-clear water, relax poolside, and let the water wash away the heat of the summer sun.

Energy Cost Savings: By keeping your RV shaded, you’ll decrease the workload on your cooling system, resulting in lower energy consumption and reduced utility costs.
