Outside window shades

Just about done with a huge project. Made outside screens for the windows of our FT. Hopefully they will work. Have sewed for years, so it was not to difficult. We already noticed that inside seemed cooler and only the front ac was running. Need our Magneshade for the front window to help there and one more to screen the drivers window. Even have enough scraps left to make a cover for the shower skylight. Also made wheel shades, but need to finish getting them set up. Will add a picture or two a bit later. Had one casualty as I accidentally stitched my finger and inadvertently ripped the stuffins out of it. It is the finger I use to take pictures with.

So can post a picture or 2. We have a tiny bit of tweaking to do as a couple of the windows have sagged a bit at the top. So will need to add another suction cup. We had a cold front come through a night ago with high winds. Nothing moved, though I had nightmares of having to comb the cedar trees around our home for the covers. We probably had wind gust to 30-40 miles per hour.
Same with the tire guards. They stayed put.. despite my mangled finger, I am happy to have them up. We definitely can tell a difference inside the coach, plus the a/c comes on later and goes off sooner. We have been in the upper 90's. Just a few more days and we will be heading west.

Update, these came in very handy in Az while camping. We had triple digets weather for a week. Was able to maintain about 80 degrees in the coach with AC going in full sun. Had to keep an eye on the volts as it was really low coming into the pedestal. Yes 80 degrees sounds hot, but after being outside in 108 it's cool.
