Energy efficiency and rvs

I can't seem to find much on energy efficieny and motorhomes. I know it is not as important as a conventional home, but I have many questions about what can be done. Has anyone improved on their louver windows by sealing?

Welcome to the forum!

It might be a good idea for you to include your make and model of MH in your signature so more people will be likely to respond to specific questions. You might also try searching the forum under "winter camping" and maybe "insulation".

Best of luck...

Just guessing, the walls and roof are pretty thin and don't have that much insulation, so the windows are probably not a major factor. A lot of the side windows are dual pane, so the main focus would be the windshield. Since we're working with a lot less volume than a house, the energy use should be a lot lower.
