5) If you can feel a lot of heat coming down through the ceiling vents it might be better to block those off with vent pillows.
6) Plan for meals that do not use appliances: The microwave will compete with the A/C, and the stove top will just add extra heat into the space. Think "Sandwiches and Salads,
All this, particularly the Reflectix on the windows including the windshield. My bedroom windows, three of them, pretty much stay covered year round. Bring in the slides to reduce air space volume plus the seals might be better closed then open to prevent drafts.
