Just got of the phone with Gila, the manufacturer of my window tint, customer support.

Duh

She told me to wait till the tint was dried to trim if necessary, that way, it doesn't move and get all boogery by trying to trim it immediately upon placement.

It can be removed and replaced at any time since it is static cling and can be trimmed to size after it dries and that way its a lot easier to trim.



Something so simple in the procedure should be apparent, but I guess I'm just an airhead sometimes.

I'll try that, but probably will go ahead and measure/cut to size like I planned on doing anyway.....

The only problem with tinted windows is that on a darker or cloudy day, the inside of the RV tends to be dark requiring lights. Otherwise, they look good.

Not in a hurry to make my 33 look like a mini Prevost, nor give up my nice clear panoramic view.

In the heat of summer here, which is about 4 months out of the year, the only way the coach can keep up is to close off all the blinds/shades and turn it into a 'cave'. This will eliminate some of that and I'll be able to enjoy the view a lot more, just like the outside front shades, it makes a great difference being able to see out the windows, not having them blocked up with foil and the shades drawn all day.

I'm looking forward to it. This tint reflects 99% of the UV and almost 70% of the heat, so although it won't be as good as an outside panel like the sunscreens up front, it's better than the foil blocking the view like it was.

I'm very happy with it and look forward to seeing how well it manages the heat in the dead of summer......

I love that I can look out during the day and see everything going on but you can't see in during the day.

I agree. I can see out plenty well with my limo tinted windows, you just can't see in from the outside (unless it's dark outside and you've got lights on inside). As a matter of fact, the view outside is BETTER because the glare is cut. As far as it being darker inside on a cloudy day, it's going to be dark inside anyway, so I'll turn a few lights on
