Keeping mobile GMRS radio cool during summer

Question

I have a trusty Wouxun KG-1000G usually mounted in my vehicle. But we moved to a much hotter location than before, so I took it out to keep it from getting ruined.  Is there a way to keep a mobile cooler in the car when temps reach easily over 103 degrees daily in summer? I don’t want it to fry....

I had a KG-1000G in my Jeep and in my wife's jeep pretty much since the KG-1000G was released, until just recently.  We go off-roading every weekend, often/usually in the southern california desert where 103°F was normal.  

I made sure that both were mounted with good airflow on all sides, and where they would never be in direct sunlight - never once did we have any heating/over heating issues.. I was actually more worried about dust getting into the innards, but that was never an issue either.

Worry less and enjoy the radio!

Much appreciated!  

BTW, subscriber and big fan of yours. Being in a radio desert in my new hone state, I’ll probably follow your advice and set up a repeater in my area soon. 

Thanks again for the heat advisory!! Ill pop it back in the car and not worry about it.
