I put the insulation up against the fiberglass cap the best I could. Used a yard stick to push it behind the cabinets to the left and right of the TV. It's not the best, but better than nothing. It's hidden from view by the cabinets and TV enclosure.

Roger that! It seems like a large down blanket drooped over the entire motorhome might be the easiest solution. Have to pull a trailer to carry it along though...

One of the things we use in our bricks and sticks on the remaining single pane windows is the 3M heat shrink plastic and double stick tape.

Covering the windows is the single most important item for reducing heat transfer. Reflectix works well, however it totally blocks light too.
