Reflectix insulation?

I know you can't use mirrored window film on double pane windows as they can build up heat and crack . Has anyone had any problems using Reflectix on the inside of windows such as the ones in a slide in the bedroom ? I personally can't see what it could possibly hurt !

I personally haven't used it , but have seen lots of people that do. I don't know if single or dual pane would make any difference.

I have used it for at least 3 years (dual pane) ... it works ... it's cheap ... and did I mention it works !!

However, you must keep it as close as possible to the glass for maximum efficiency ... otherwise you will get hot air trapped between the glass and the Reflectix ... as in, HOT AIR INSIDE THE RV!

Thanks for the information . I know it works very well I used it on a trailer before and it dropped the inside temp by 10 degrees

I'v used it on two 5rs, one without duel pane windows and our current 5r has the duel pane glass. Cut to size and slip them between the day night shades and the window screen, work great. Used mostly when traveling in temps above 70.

I assume similar benefits for cold weather camping.

I used it on my windshield . It worked well however , if you spray it with cold water in the heat of the day it may split the windshield down the middle. Don't ask me how I know.
