Keep Your Rv Cool This Summer - wikiHow
from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
A simple method to keep your roof air conditioner on your rv to perform better this summer.
- After cleaning and changing filters simply place your water hose with a misting nozzel attached on the roof of your coach or trailer and provide a stream of mist over your roof air conditioner. Enjoy that 20 degree difference inside your rv during this summer's record heat. This has been working for us during the last eleven days of extreme Texas record heating.
- If your roof ac starts blowing warm air during extreme heat episode turn off unit and allow it to fully cool down while you continue to mist. I think the reason for this event is that each roof air unit has a maximum capacity for heat it can exchange and if it reaches this limit it shuts down to protect itself from burning. If it continues to occur shut it down go outside and mist yourself.
- Don't waterlog your device.
Things You'll Need
- hose,nozzel with mist setting,water source,ladder

Take a look here when planning your next RV trip, this could prove to be a good way to offset the high price of gas.
3. Save Fuel
Know-how ways to save:
* If you haven't already, change to synthetic motor oil. It reduces engine friction and can improve gas mileage.
* Adding fuel injector cleaner at every oil change will keep injector nozzles clean, and spraying properly, which will create better combustion and deliver maximum power.
* Consider installing window film in southern climates, it can reduce cabin temperature as much as 20 degrees; dramatically reducing the need for air conditioning that consumes additional gas. Check local laws on www.gilafilms.com.
* After filling up, be sure the gas cap clicks 3 times. Improperly seated gas caps allow 147 million gallons of fuel to vaporize every year in the U.S.
* Consider a locking gas cap, but be sure it meets/exceeds your vehicle manufacturer specifications.
* Plan your day efficiently. The less trips you have to make, the more you save in fuel.
Buying gas the right way:
* Buy gasoline during the coolest time of day-early morning or late evening is best. During these times gasoline is densest. Keep in mind that gas pumps measure volumes of gasoline, not densities of fuel concentration. You are charged according to volume of measurement. *
4. Camp Hosts Needed
Almost all state parks have opportunities for volunteers to get involved. Volunteer positions may be short term, for specific events or activities, or ongoing programs. Some typical volunteer positions are:
Park Host - Park Hosts are volunteers who supplement park staff and serve as a representative of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Hosts greet campers and give assistance to park visitors and park staff. More information on the Park Host Program.

Cilantro Orzo and Beef
Fresh southwestern flavors make this extra-lean beef dish a tasty and simple solution to the "What's for dinner?" question.
3 cups beef broth

1 can 11 ounces) Green Giant® Niblets® vacuum-packed whole kernel corn, undrained
1 can (4.5 ounces) Old El Paso® chopped green chiles, undrained

1/2 pound cut-up extra-lean beef for stir-fry
1 medium bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 . Mix broth, pasta, corn and chilies in 2-quart saucepan. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until pasta is just tender; remove from heat. Let stand about 5 minutes or until almost all liquid is absorbed.
2 . While pasta mixture is cooking, spray 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add oil; heat over medium-high heat. Cook beef and bell pepper in oil about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown.
3 . Stir beef mixture into pasta mixture. Stir in cilantro.
