All these factors combine to make an outdoor evaporative cooler a great choice for your RV.

Keep Comfortable Outside Your RV

You RV to spend time outdoors, and you don’t want to retreat inside the vehicle all the time. Leaving your RV door open runs the risk of burning out your AC unit and will definitely lead to consuming a lot of power.

On the other hand, having an outdoor evaporative cooler can create a cool area outside your RV. Using half the power of AC or less, it’s okay to leave these running. An evaporative cooler can rapidly cool a lot of air, which means that it can make an area cool even if you can’t trap or contain the cooled air. You might enjoy temperatures as much as 30 degrees Fahrenheit lower than the ambient air temperature. This means that even if it’s into triple-digits, you will still enjoy a comfortable temperature near your RV.

With cool air, your RV will become the go-to place for friends and acquaintances that you see year after year on your travels. Everyone will want to hang out by your RV. As a side benefit, you won’t sweat as much, which will decrease your risk of dehydration. This frees you up to enjoy different types of beverages without having to worry as much about water.

Cool Your RV

While an evaporative cooler is a great choice for the outdoors, it can cool your RV as well. All you need is a way to set up the evaporative cooler so it blows into the RV. With high-profile evaporative coolers like the Cyclone 140, you can just set it up at the door and angle it in. Don’t forget to open a window or two for exhaust. This helps direct the flow through your RV.

With the high amount of cool air that an evaporative cooler can put out, it only takes a few minutes for your RV to cool down. This means you can alternate your evaporative cooler between cooling outside and cooling inside to keep both comfortable.
