Reflectix

I have to credit my wife with this one. She was concerned that the RV was too hot. She purchased two rolls of Reflectix at Home Depot and started lining the cabinets, then the closets, then the large door to the outdoor kitchen. She even used a large cutting of the 48" to completely cover the cab side windows and windshield (when parked). The results were amazing. RV much more comfortable. She used velcro to secure the reflectix.

Yep, that stuff is amazing. It works well in the winter to keep the heat inside as well.

I been thinking about putting him my upper cabinets as well.

I will keep in all my windows at night when the AC is on....Keeps the cold Inside the RV that way its not running as much at night.

In fact I will crack it down to 68 deg at night before I go to bed then turn up to 75 deg. so I dont hear it kick on until like 5 or 6am. The darn AC wakes me up.... Im working on ways to quiet it down when I have time I will post my results.

I pretty much leave the bedroom windows covered year round. Besides helping to maintain interior temps (both summer and winter) the material helps with light diffusion for late morning sleep in. Also cover the shower skylight. Another big heat source.

I put a free sample of my clear ceramic window tint on the inside of the shower sky light. It cuts out most of the heat and allows all the light into the bathroom. Plus its one less thing I have to do in order to reject heat when its hot outside.

Ok(dammit)
I added insulating inside cabinets and the shower skylight to the list.
I already had adding it to the ceiling vent covers on the list.
Hell, it's just a list....

If your like me, Just as I cross off one mod off my list I add two more.

I never get caught up. Good thing im handy.... But I guess most of these mods are not really needed....I just think it make my RV a little better or more confortable etc. The wife likes most of the mods (others she dont even notice but thats Okay.... I notice them).

When it cools down I hope to cross off half my list .... just in time for the spring .... by then my list will grow again.
