Added Sloar Screens

I'm camping in the Outer Banks and there was a vendor installing solar shades on one of my neighboring class A's. After speaking with the owner which had the the shades installed I had the vendor give me a quote on wrapping the front windshield, driver/passenger windows and the entry door. Additionally they make custom awning solar shades which are two pieces allowing only a small piece to remain in the awing to be rolled up. The rolled up piece allows the larger section to be added quickly with the pre installed hooks. All of the hardware is marine grade and doesn't rush and I looked at the material the campground had installed any years ago and it has lasted the harsh ocean environment. The price was very reasonable and i ended up ordering the solar shades and awing shade. To my surprise they showed up the next morning made some final measurements and installed. Very professional and new their business.

We are now able to leave the interior shades open during the day and light up the interior! My wife is happy!

These folks travel and install on the road if anyone is interested. RV Windshield Covers of Florida is the name of the company.

PS three of us ended up getting the same install!

Thanks for the information. I bought a roll of solar screen from Lowe's and had a local Auto Upholstery shop custom make solar screens for all the windows on our coach. Living in the hot Nevada desert they really help.

Good luck and safe travels..

After installing the screen, make sure the blade edge of the wiperblade is all pointing in the same direction (either swept up or swept down). If it gets mixed and is exposed to the sun/heat for a long time, the blade will be useless when it is needed.

Covers will also help keep them useful longer. I use a section of pipe insulation over the blade and a tennis ball under the arm (keeps pressure off of the blade).

Thanks for the input. I also use the pipe insulation on the blades as it significantly extends the life.
