Situation: RV roof air fails as South Texas heats up. Gate guards our age do not survive in that situation. At least not well.
1. Quit the gate and take RV to a repair facility. Result – AC fixed at a cost of $300 to $600 lost. Total cost could easily exceed $3,000.
2. Call mobile RV repair service. 2 days or much more for parts ordered and repair completed. Cost likely exceeds $600 with lost wages added. Days of suffering with 90 plus heat.
3. Purchase portable AC unit. Cost – $300 to $500 depending on unit chosen. We would need the unit for only 3 weeks as we are taking a couple of months off beginning 7/1 and we would get the roof AC fixed at a more convenient time.
Option 3, for us, is the best choice.
Taking it a step further, as retailer has a 90 day return policy, we could return the unit once our roof AC fixed for a full refund.
Net result would be zero cost to us.
I’m no saint but something about taking advantage of a retailer return policy like that bothers me. Not a lot. But still.
Wonder if I’m just naïve.
