Our rig has the dual interior electric shades, they seem to work pretty well but I'm still planning on ordering a Magneshade as the cats like to watch whats going on outside.

My sympathies to you folks out west. We're supposed to get 95 here in NC this weekend. I just hope the humidity stays down.

For those of you traveling in this heat, are your engines staying cool? Can you travel without stopping to cool down? What temperature are your engines at when your traveling?

No question that the outside windshield shade works. We have the set made for CC by MCD back when MCD was still making them. One for windshield, one for the driver's window and one for the entry door. Really makes a difference up front in hot weather. Only negative is the need for a ladder to put them on.

I just ordered a Magna Shade yesterday. Just need to get the coach back to double check the measurements. Also thinking about applying Lizard Skin Ceramic coating to the roof.

Do you have tire pressure/temperature monitor system installed? If not, might be a good idea to invest in one. The wicked high temps can cause the P to increase to dangerous levels. Even though I drove after things cooled off a little, I still had to pull over twice to let the tires cool off. I had no idea I was pushing my luck before!!

Good idea! Lol, no, i do not have tpms on my tires but i am going to invest in them because on the way back i rode on one rear flat for about two hours and didnt know it until i stopped to check! Good thing tire was not damaged and it was flat because angled inflation adapter was loose and leaking. Found a truck tire shop that checked it, aired it back up and made it all the way home!so yea, next time i am not leaving without tpms system

My temps were getting dangerously high often going up the mountains through and past Arizona into Cali! Had to stop and cool down a couple times because temp got up too high for my comfort. On the other hand, i was pulling a large trailer with an expedition on it, so that probably contributed to the high temps as well. After that i tried to time going through mountains at night or early morning!

Last year we traveled with 3 grandkids, criss crossing the USA from North Carolina to Oregon and back. Had to see the Grand Canyon. From San Fran, we traveled through Death Valley. We spent a night in Mohave Valley so the kids could visit Oatman. As we got into our toad, kids looked at the dash and it registered 112 degrees. They though the thermometer was broken! Too funny. Learned to face the coach away from the sun and to use a hand trimmed thermal blank in the front windshield in the front of the power shade. Coach was very comfortable.
