Summerizing? It's 115 and 115+ outside this week in Arizona. It's hot enough that the label adhesive on the antiseptic bottle melts in the car and the label slips away.
The roof shingles would probably slide off the roof if they weren't nailed on.
I need to set and leave the air conditioning on in the house before leaving for the summer.
I'm thinking 90-degrees.
Any suggestions as to what to set the AC temp?

Why haven't you left already? We leave the mid to end of April. Since our Park Model is old, we just shut off the water, shut off the power, cover every thing, put blackout curtains in the windows to cut down on sun infiltration and go. We have someone check on it all summer, and they turn on the water and power about 3-4 days before we arrive back, usually the first of October.

We're tethered to Mayo Clinic for treatments.
