Congrats on one more thing off the DIY list !
you are much more adventurous than I !

Was ready to pay the piper and called the local tint guy that did the huper-optik ceramic on my cars and trucks and he said mine already had "Solar Reflective Windows (UV Protection)" and it could wait ---

last summer wasn't too bad once I figured out how to quick cool the interior by opening the direct flow and not the ducted flow of the main ac....

my simple man's logic is that I want it to cool the interior first and once it's cooled, THEN I can duct it and cool the roof and ducting

Birds Are Hitting The Tinted Windows What To Do?

I just got confirmation yesterday afternoon of something I'd suspected.

I began seeing little 'powdery looking' spots about the size of a baseball on the tinted windows, the big one fore of the entry door and the one on the other side. I couldn't figure out what was causing them. They easily wiped off, and I was suspecting of maybe a bird was hitting or running into them....but not really, I didn't really think they could be, because how could they not see this big huge thing in the back yard?

Yesterday afternoon, there were three of these 'powdery spots' where Saturday there had been two of them, almost in the center of each window pane of the window fore of the entry door. I made a comment to a friend who was visiting that I couldn't figure out what those spots were or where they were coming from and that I thought it might be a bird but that couldn't be. He had a sheepish look and said one day they were outside waiting on me and a bird flew into and hit that window so hard that it/he/she dropped and died from hitting that window! He said they 'hid' it in the corner shrubery to keep my from freaking out about it, didn't want me to know the bird died flying into the motorhome. I guess they just thought it a fluke, but it isn't. The birds are flying into those tinted windows....

I was flabbergasted that it really was birds hitting it!

I guess I just didn't think that much about it till he said that. So I went out there and looked and the reflection on the windows is the shrubs on the west side of the yard, it looks like shrubs and the recently planted silver maple tree reflects almost all the view points on that window. Obviously the birds are seeing those reflections and mistaking it for real space!

I have to put something over those windows when parked to keep this from happening, I was thinking of a suction cup attached to something, but can't figure out what?
