Lois & John,
Did you apply the material to the outside or inside the windshields

Hello Cedar,

We've had the same problem finding a solution to the heat in the cockpit while driving. We got some Kwik-Shade material from Camping World and applied it to the top 1/3 or more of the front windshields. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I just had mine done this past spring. I only did the two sides up front. They put on a light tint so I would be within the law. It helps a lot. I do not have double pane windows up front on the sides. I have never seen double pain except in the other parts of the coach. I have an allegro.

Sorry for slow reply, been off-line for a couple days. Installed Kwik-Shade on inside. It is not intended for outside use, would blow off. It is sort of like a thick sheet of very flexible vinyl. It can be easily removed at any time by just peeling it off, comes off in one piece and can be re-applied. It's an inexpensive solution that's worth trying, doesn't leave any residue or anything.

Can't be applied to forward part of the driver's window because it would be pushed off when you opened the window to pay a toll or whatever.

We tried to get the electric shades installed on our '02 at the FMCA rally in Brooksville last Feb, but the installer could not find a way to install them in a functional and aesthetic manner.

Go ahead and have your windows tinted. I contracted "Tint America" a company with 26 years experience in the field to do my windows. Mike and his wife Dian came over and did our coach. They did both sides of the cockpit area and all the windows in our street side slideout.

They used a light tint on the windows and a medium tint on the upper panes in the cockpit. The cumulative tint is now a medium in the windows and dark on the upper panes. I love the job they did it turned out perfectly.

Mike & Dian are here in Ocean Lakes and we're both going to be evacuating the South Carolina coast for a campground off I-95 close to Fayetteville, NC.

Colleen and I leave at 05:30 in the am and we'll be in Fayetteville by 10:00 or so. The bulk of the storm should pass over or away from us by Tuesday.

If the weather improves by Tuesday or Wednesday we'll be returning to Ocean Lakes as soon as we can. I don't want to be stuck here in the case of an evacuation and Ophelia could just about do anything right now nobody knows.

Worst case it'll intensify best case it'll blow out to sea.

Mike & Dian have been doing tinting for 26 years and if he says it's OK, I have no reason not to believe him especially when he assures me that the tinting he did is not going to compromise the dual pane windows in my coach.

Mike did offer that on a residential dual pane window he would "not" use a tint but a reflective film instead of tint because tint could be a problem with the seals.
