Interior Engine cover heat? Shield?

My spouse complains (Oh no, not another complaint) about the amount of heat thrown off by the engine cover to the passenger side of our 2016. Minnie Winnie 22r built on the Ford E-350 chassis with a 5.4 liter V8

She says there is an excessive amount of heat on her legs on the passenger side seating area.

Has anyone found an additional bit of insulation, padding or whatnot to secure to the engine cover in the cab area to shield the heat thrown off?

I forget what it is called but I used a material I bought from an HVAC supply house. It is sort of like corrugated cardboard. It has an aluminized backing and is about 16 or 18 inches x 36 inches. It was placed over the top of the engine before returning the dog-house cover to it's position. it didn't need anything to secure it in place. The corrugations allowed for it to be formed in a curve from left to right over top the engine.
Additionally, radiant heat going up into the coach may be abated by wrapping the exhaust pipes with insulating tape. This would have the added advantage of actually providing more horsepower as it reduces pumping losses through the exhaust system. Good luck!

I installed Dynamat Extreme, and a layer of Dyna-Hoodliner inside the dog house on my Workhorse chassis coach and it greatly improved the noise level coming through the doghouse cover as was as a notable improvement in radiated heat.
