I worked in Ehrenburg one summer,(02) and in Lake Havasu the next summer.(03) It was 122 in both places during the day and got down to about 110-112 at nite. When the temps finally dropped down to 114 during the day, it wasn't too bad.  ;D

Hailey is in the 90's Mike rain on Sat that is were it starts to cool it is going to be a hot trip across the Nv and Id desert as Dan said you were stopping in Wells so I guess that is your route 93 to 75 up to Ketchum

Hey, have you all forgotten we have "dry heat"? Clifford, are you suggesting that Wells could be considered a "hot Box". Thanks Ed, I was hoping the weatherman would be wrong this time????

 And 90 with higher humidity is going to feel a lot hotter! ;D   Clifford, as my wife says, "its a dry heat stroke".

I couldn't under stand why you were going to Sun Valley lol you will be fine once you reach Hailey but except over the 100's across the Idaho desert around the Twin Falls areas through Jerome and Goodings  I have saw 112 before there

Harleyman: Chances are any short term inverter solution is not going to handle a AC unit. It takes a  good well though out unit to handle a minimal amount of AC.  Several thousand of dollars.  Don't get caught out in high temp in a new bus without AC.  Add about 30 plus to outside temps in sun.  FWIW  Bob

Yeah, but it's a dry heat out there.  Here in Michigan, 95 with 90% humidity feels like 122.
