As soon as the heat arrives, it can be difficult to endure the high temperatures. Especially if you are in a confined space like a motorhome. Here are some tips for keeping cool.
Even though this summer isn’t the hottest we’ve seen in the hexagon, the hot weather can still come by the end of August. And in the face of high temperatures, the practice of camping-car can be quite trying if you are not well prepared.
Here are some tips for better living an episode of high heat once in your motorhome.
First obvious advice, if you do not want to have direct heat in addition to high ambient temperatures, choose a location The shadow.
But unfortunately all stage areas do not offer shaded pitches. During the hottest hours of the day, it may therefore be interesting to make a detour to a parking lot or a location sheltered from the sun.
If your motorhome has air conditioning, you can run the engine and the air conditioning. The ideal is to turn on the air conditioning before sleeping and then turn everything off at bedtime.
When you are driving, you can of course activate the air conditioning, but without abusing it : there must not be too large a gap between the inside of your vehicle and the outside, at the risk of even more fatigue if you set foot outside. For example, favor a temperature between 23 ° and 25 °.
If your vehicle does not have air conditioning, it is better to avoid driving during the hottest hours of the day so as not to accumulate heat in the passenger compartment.
