Ceramic Tinting is a film which insulates the windows. This is our fifth coach that I have had tinted, the last two have been Ceramic tinted. The difference is remarkable! It is only about 30% light reduction (not limo blackout). Contact a Proffessional tinting company and ask for a demonstration to the difference, if they don't sell it move on!

The five inches of roof insulation I referred to is foam insulation installed by the factory when they built the coach. As far as I know, all Alpine Coaches have this.

I have a 42' American tradition diesel pusher. It is currently 96 degrees outside and it's 82 degrees in the coach. All 3 AC's plus dash air running and it is getting hot in here quick.
While sitting still however, it will freeze you out regardless of generator air or with hookups. It gets super cold if sitting still.

Does anybody know if the American coach is known for poor insulation? We have had everything checked, even drove it to Decatur and left it at the factory for 3 months. They did fix a seal around a slide and a leak in the dash air. But it is still hot in it while going down the road. Kids have sweat beads across their faces.
We are at a loss! Any experience with American coach on this forum?

You have an advantage. You can check for dash leaks at night. Take a BRIGHT light and have someone go all under the hood, wheel wells, and front end. Have someone else inside looking for openings. You would not believe the holes we have found in the dash area. The flat front end of the coach pushes a lot of air and it will come in if possible.
