I might not be on topic here.... We have found that hanging a curtain just behind the front driver and passenger's seat makes a big difference in keeping the cool in the living area during the summer and heat in the area during the fall and winter. Also we keep it closed while driving and the chassis' A/C and heater then keep us comfortable.

I think I saw pictures of your unit with the shades installed on the Magna Shade web site - very clean installation.

Thanks for the feedback.

I made my own windshield shade out of Phifertex (from Sailrite.com). This material allows you to see outside but folks cannot see inside (except at night when lights are on in coach). Also made an awning sun/wind shade out of same material. These were very easy to make. I can provide more detail and photos to any that need it.

Another question. I have a serious leak at the sliding window on both driver and passenger side. I just put on several layers of duct tape to stop it but this is only a temporary fix as you need to be able to open the windows sometimes. Yesterday, I bought a gutter extension and installed these on right and left front, along with a rubber gutter that I installed between the awning and gutter extension. These helped very much on the flow (it has really been raining here) but there were still leaks which is why I used the duct tape. Any ideas? Do any of you have this problem?

thank you
This is way late but I hope you found what you were looking for and have enjoyed it. We're in the process of looking for the same rv and hope to learn from your experience.

Can anyone tell me if the drivers seat can move up and down for shorter people? Thanks

recently purchased used 2011Avanti 2806 has the same problem with front side window tracks filling with rainwater.
wife says she found a mention on line that Damon did not provide functional weep holes in these window installations.

currently looking for a solution.

When leveling we made sure the front was slightly higher than the rear allowing the rain water to drain toward the back. Took care of our similar issue.
