Thanks, I am going over to see if it is still in one piece after all those storms here in Georgia last nite. It appears that the worst of the storms went North and South of us and left us nearly alone. It is so sad to see how many people lost there lives last night and how many people lost their homes and everything. We had a mile wide tornado stay on the ground for over a hundred miles from Tuscaloosa, AL through Rome GA.

Black roof absorbs heat and radiates it into the coach!

I install Energy management systems for a lot of large retailers, and have participated in studies of white versus black roofs. We installed sensors at the ceiling level of these stores, and found that there is very little heat difference between the stores with white roofs versus the stores with black roofs. This study has been done by several different customers of our's, and the results have been the same.

The roofs are not black, just the stuff sticking up from the roof.

I believe they try to make things match my unit is black and grey so dome is black ac's are black vent covers black but roof is white. I'm sure if my coach was white everything would be white.

We painted all of our AC covers silver to match a silver on the coach this helped ALOT the air conditioners work alot better and the air inside is prob 10 degrees colder. It works and I also read on here by somebody cant remember who but they lined the inside of there unit lid with that thin bubble insulation and we did that also it helped tremendously.

To be honest I've never really paid any attention to the color of the stuff sticking up on peoples rigs. I guess I will now for awhile. I think it depends on the color scheme, Mike's looks good. My coach is tan, brown and has black stripes. Most of my stuff sticking up is painted in a tan color which matches my paint scheme, of course black would also work with my big black stripes. I don't think the A/C cover being black would make any difference one way or the other on the interior temp of the coach.

I agree, Black "Stuff that sticks up" Epically vents, not a bad thing

Black Roof, Bad thing.

On my coach the A/C covers and the Refrigerator vent cover match the main color of the body

Vent's are white (Black would be better here, I will explain) Sat dome is white (Color don't much matter)

The reason a black vent pipe or cover would be better is that in this case the higher temps INSIDE the pipe, which would result from them being black (At least during the day) would result in a very, very slight improvement in vent air flow. Hot air rising as it does.

Of course, that's only when the sun shines.

And the difference would be very very slight

But then the cost is very very .. zero, so even a very tiny improvement is a great value when divided by zero cost.

We live just a few miles from Ringgold, GA...in Chattanooga. I can relate to the storms going around us. But, they didn't go around our area.....just our specific area of town.
