Also when on road does air coming from front dash unit cool back of RV when on the road worried about dog ? To stay cool while on coach on the road ?
We have a 2018 Fuse and it has the LP generator. We live in southern Arizona and also travel with a pet, so keeping the RV cool is also a concern of ours as well. A couple of comments.
First, we have found that running the dash AC is sufficient to keep the entire RV cool when driving. The Fuse is only 24 feet and if the dash AC is set at a cold temperature and the fan is set relatively high we find it cools the entire place. If it is very hot (perhaps 110F +) we may also run the generator and the roof AC, but only until we get out of the heat.
Next, if we stop and leave the RV for shopping or lunch we make sure the generator is on so we can run the roof AC. Those periods usually only amount to perhaps an hour at a time and we have not noticed particularly high LP usage from the generator.
I do not know how much heat you are battling where you live and we do not generally stop for extended periods in the Arizona heat. During the summers we are traveling to some place cooler and only stop and leave the RV when we are at some cooler location, but "some cooler location" may still be fairly hot (perhaps 90F +) and then we do as above.
