Usually you only add water towards the end and they are not far off hatching so its ok to open just not when they start hatching

Its hard to keep the temp at that 100-101 especially on days of 40

Yes it can be hard.
A reminder that the fan in an incubator generates a fair amount of heat and on a hot day can actually be adding to the problem, particularly if eggs are in a late stage of development and also generating heat.
In that case if you can be on hand to monitor things it can be best to turn off the incubator and open it up.
