W8RLM - Bob, I will usually set my coach AC system to say 68 to 70 degrees and I will leave it in AUTO.

When I'm running down the road my sub floor generates a lot of heat from my exhaust pipes. The heat works its way up the void on the bathroom wall where my thermostat is mounted.

When I start the generator while underway, the AC's indicated room temperature is typically in the 80s and this will cause the AC to run and begin cooling. When the coach AC runs while I am underway it never become satisfied and will continue to pump out cold air until i turn of the generator off.

Setting a number on the thermostat in my application might not be as easy as doing the same thing on an RDP that does not have exhaust pipes running under the mid-coach area.

Any type of technology can be applied however does it add an additional layer of complexity? There you go.

The technology to multiplex the thermostat controls from their current positon to the front of the coach is not very hard. This could be a unique option for Winnebago. Any comments?

W8RL - Bob
Bob;

This is what I do. Set the temperature and turn ON the house AC. When you are driving and you need the house AC just start the generator from the dash. After the built in time delay the AC transfer switch will switch the generator AC to the AC and the AC unit will begin to cool.

Driver, I have a question on the new 39N Destination. Do you remember if the bunks are accessible with slides closed. The floorplan in the brochure appears that it is not accessible. I like everything else that they are doing with this model. Planning on looking at one as soon as dealers start getting some. thanks jim w.

Jim, I would agree with your observation. there was a 39N at the RVIA Expo however I did not have as much time as I wanted to spend a lot of time in that model. Winnebago brought a lot of rigs and for the first time that I can recall, bunk beds were in at least 3 of the rigs I visited. One of the rigs even had fold up bunk beds and the space converted into a closet.
