Hey All,
I've been using this stuff for quite a while now, and recently re-did all the windows with fresh reflectix. I had a few windows without before, now they can all be covered.

This weekend, with outdoor temps in the 90's AND parked in a completely unshaded parking lot, my interior temps never got above 85. Before, they would have matched or exceeded the exterior temp.

I am a believer! I have heard of issues with dual pane windows...but have never seen it occur.

I wrote an install article for the RV Newsletter you can read.

It's at:

WanderMan: More Cool Tips - Thermal Insulation for Your Windows...It Works!

I even cut out small squares from the scrap to cover the inside of my vent fans.

First I do Full Time. My MH sits out in the Sun with no shade, present time in South Florida.
Where the daytime temps hit 91-93 almost every day now.

MH windshield faces N. with full bubble wrap. With RV Quick Shades By Pacesetter Enterprises between windshield & bubble wrap.

I did have the E. window that is not covered replaced 1 1/2 year ago because of fogging.

Side windows face E. & W. With a 21' Patio awning & 1 window awning on E. side.

E. side has bubble wrap in one 52" X 40", one 20" X 32" and one 50" X 39" One window 68" X 26" no bubble wrap but Day/Night shade is down covering 18" of it. Front door 26" X 16" has no bubble wrap but patio awning shading it and two other windows on that side.

West side has 2 window awning and bubble wrap in one 50" X 39" and one 56" X 32" window. Drivers side window 52" X 34" has bubble wrap and no awning cover.

One rear Coleman March III PS 13.5K AC on Low setting will keep inside below 74 until out side gets to around 91-92 then I turn on the front Coleman PS 13.5K AC on Low and it will cycle on & off(at 72) keeping the temps below 74 inside.

Both running at same time on 30AMP service with EMS.

Maybe keeping the inside cool around 72-74 helps lessen the fogging then one with the bubble wrap and sits in storage with much higher(100 plus) inside temps.
