sounds like thermostat problem. of course it will heat up faster if you run a/c because motor is under more stress. follow the big hose from radiator and where it goes into the top of engine is your thermostat
your car should not be near that, it should stay at the middle line or a little under. You need to keep an eye on your radiator fluid level. I just changed the radiator and thermostat in my wifes car. DO NOT DRIVE YOUR CAR IF ITS RUNNING THAT HOT, IT WILL BLOW YOUR MOTOR!!!
As a precaution, I would do a routine cooling system service on it. This includes completely flushing the coolant, replacing the thermostat and radiator cap (believe it or not, a bad cap can cause issues too).
On the few Fords I have owned, mine were always in the middle, or to the left of the middle.
Motor homes should run cooler actually, beings as they tend to have heavy duty large capacity cooling systems.
