11 Tips to Keep Your RV Cool During the Summer Heat
As temperatures rise, we understand the importance of keeping your RV cool during the summer heat. We’ve created a list of helpful tips to help you beat the heat and make the most of your stay at Blue Sky Cedar Creek RV Park!
Ready for some summer vacation RV Camping? From spraying down your roof and utilizing reflective window covers to taking advantage of our premium amenities, we have you covered. Let’s dive into these tips and discover how you can keep your RV cool while enjoying the fun-filled atmosphere at our park!
Reflective Window Covers
Invest in reflective window covers or shades to block out direct sunlight. These covers help keep the interior of your RV cooler by reflecting the sun’s rays. This helps maintain a cooler interior temperature and reduces the strain on your A/C unit. Don’t forget your skylights!
Spray the Roof of Your RV With Water
With our full-hookup sites, just hook up your garden hose and shower the roof of your rig. This can lower your RV’s exterior temperature by almost 10 degrees in less than 60 seconds.
Insulate Your RV
Improve the insulation in your RV by using thermal curtains, window tinting, or adding insulation to the roof and walls. Enhanced insulation helps keep the cool air in and prevents the heat from seeping inside. When you’re well insulated, your A/C doesn’t have to work as hard to cool.

Ensure your RV’s vents and windows are open to promote airflow throughout your vehicle. Utilize vent covers to keep vents open even during light rain, allowing for continuous ventilation. Make sure your vents and filters are clean from dust, fur or debris. Dirty filters and coils can impede airflow and make your A/C work harder, leading to higher energy consumption!
Take Advantage of Blue Sky Cedar Creek RV Park’s Amenities
Cool off in our sparkling pool during the hottest parts of the day. Relaxing in the water is a great way to beat the heat and enjoy your summer camping experience. We also have plenty to do in our Clubhouse for our guests where you can play billiards, ping pong, watch your favorite movie in our indoor movie theatre and escape the high temps!
Place fans strategically inside your RV to circulate the air and create a cooling breeze. Ceiling fans or portable fans can make a significant difference in maintaining a comfortable temperature. They can help create a cooling effect and can make the space feel more comfortable without solely relying on air conditioning.
Opt for Outdoor Cooking
Minimize heat buildup inside your RV by utilizing outdoor cooking options such as a portable grill or picnic area. This keeps heat-generating appliances outside, preventing the interior from getting hotter. (Blue Sky Tip: Each Texas-Size Pull Thru is equipped with a private picnic table and fire ring for all of your grillin’ and chillin’ needs!) Find easy outdoor camping recipes here!
Close Blinds and Curtains
During peak sun hours (2pm – 5pm), keep your RV’s blinds and curtains closed to block out the direct sunlight. This helps maintain a cooler interior temperature and less work for your A/C.
Plan Outdoor Activities Wisely
Organize your outdoor activities during the cooler parts of the day, such as mornings or evenings. Play pickleball or basketball and get some exercise in the morning or at sundown! Check out our blog post of 3 Fun Water Attractions Near Seven Points, TX to cool off during your stay!
Hydration is crucial during the summer heat. Drink plenty of water to keep yourself cool and prevent dehydration. Check out our ‘Sky Store’, where you can buy ice cold water, gatorade, energy drinks and plenty of snacks to refuel!
Use Your Awning or Canopy
Deploy your RV’s awning or set up a canopy outside to create additional shaded space. This provides a comfortable area to relax outdoors and reduces the heat load on your RV’s interior. By reducing direct sunlight exposure, you can prevent your RV from heating up and rely less on air conditioning
