I will keep everyone posted, or even do a write-up (it may take a month or so though). At first I was going to go with Magna Shades for the windshield... but recently saw a setup for the duo shades for the windshield... It looked pretty nice and not that much more in price. However, it is more labor intensive.
We are also interested in replacing the accordion shades. Keep us all posted on your results with MCD Innovation. Thanks

Is that an installed price? According to their price sheet you can install it yourself for less than $500 for the two windows and for the windshield It will be around $650. Im still in the process of talking with their tech, I know the windows is straight forward but for the windshield, there is a series questions/answers MCD needs in order to proceed. I will update as things uncover.

Do you really need one for the entry door though, never thought about adding one for that.

Do you have the product # from Camping World?

Are you referencing the side windows (replacement of the accordion shades) ? Assume that cost is for product only and does not include installation cost?

We're happy with all the shades except for the passenger/driver side window coverings --

Anyone know if these hatches are supposed to have shocks to hold open? There are two or three that swing horizontal with no bracket.

I've looked at a few models including our 36.1 and none of them have shocks/struts to hold open those hatches. I installed shocks on two of the hatches that I use the most - the hatch for the rear black tank and the hatch for the DEF tank. Since I rarely open the LP nor the Inverter hatch, I didn't install any on those.

I purchased the gas shock stuff via eBay but CW and Amazon also carry them.
The struts I used (Suspa C16-06389) extend to 14 inches and compress down to 8 inches. This model slowly opens the door (instead of rapidly flying up in ones face). It opens the door to about 20 to 30 degrees above horizontal.

When I installed the shocks, I made sure the flange on the door was screwed into the door's metal frame (instead of the soft door material).

Should I be concerned if the leveling jacks pick a tire off the ground?
