That's a idea. The top windows on the sides of the cockpit are tinted from the factory I would like to tint the lower windows to match. The tint the top half of the windshield the same color or tint. I don think I want to do the whole windshield though!

I have my driver and passenger windows tinted and it reflects like a mirror at night. EEK. I like it though and don't do much night driving. I
Have a power windshield that I lower to block the sun. Sometimes I lower it to the top of the wipers which I guess its legal.

Last May, Redlands Truck & RV installed powered MCD Duos in the cockpit and I use them and like them. Driving East in the morning, West in the afternoon, or South, I just feel the 6 switches when driving to lower the needed sunscreen and blind. I find that my eyes like the blinds down about half way (to the top of the side mirrors), the glare is reduced and there is no problem seeing down the road. I lower the powered sun screens when stopping at rest stops for the privacy, which prevents thiefs from viewing the inside.

I think this is what he's talking about.

RV Carefree III Power Window Sun Visor Windshield Shade Screen Curtain 12V Left | eBay

I installed these in my MH, there great when driving into the sun. they have stiffeners build in so they don't flap around. You raise and lower with a switch.

Do you mean exterior screens? I seriously doubt that anyone does that.
I do not recommend this, but a couple of years ago while preparing to drive from one campground to another, I forgot to remove the Prompt sunscreen from the front windshield. We drove about 35 miles, not at interstate speeds but two lane road speeds. It was only when I noticed the strap flapping in the breeze that I realized what I had done. The screen stayed in place and, in the bright sunshine we did not need sunglasses.

I felt almost as dumb as the guy claiming he left his DW at a rest stop.

I stand corrected.

We have had a pair of the Rosen Protectors for over 15 years and plan to remove them and take them to the next MO we purchase. The shades are optical quality plastic and the mounting allows them to swival to just about any position, including the side windows. The mounting metal parts are thick anodized aluminum machined parts. Ours are currently in a Safari Trek mounted onto the unside of the over dash cabinets. I recently purchased, from Rosen, an 18" mounting arm to use on the passenger side of the visor as the original 12" visor works just fine mounted under the DS TV cabinet which extends 6" further down then the PS mounting. Should have done that 15 years ago. Here's the Rosen web site: Rosen Sunvisor Systems They are pricey but work very well.You'll see they have different sizes. Originally we bought 12" ones. Now I just replaced the PS side main mounting bar with the longer 18" one.
