Heat shield

I have a 2001 Jayco class c. We took it on a Florida trip at Christmas and I noticed that there was a lot of heat around the foot area.Has anyone tried to insulate the floor and dog house with a welding blanket? Northern Tool has two types. One is rated to 1000 F and a carbon to 1800 F.Any thoughts

We used a 3/8" thick, foil backed pad fro J.C. Whitney. Pull the floot mats and seats and cover the floor. Line the engine side of the engine cover. Seal the edges with thmeir foil tape.

I would not bother with the foil bubble kit sold by Camping World and others.

Bonded Logic Heat/Sound Insulation - JCWhitney

This what we used on our former Minnie Winnie. You do have to pull the seats and carpet which has not insulation under it. Cut the edges of the insulation about 1: short of the door and engine cover edges. Use the high temp spray adhesive from Whitney to glue the insulation (foil side out) to the engine cover and seal the edges with the aluminum tape.

It took me about 5 hours all total to do mine. It made a 1000% improvement. I do not understand why the manufacturers do not do this in the first place. In the south, the floor and engine cover really get HOT...especially the passenger side.
