Finally Able To Beat The Heat

After suffering through a summer of heat in 2012 and thinking the front A/C unit in our 2012 Berkshire 360 FWS was not big enough I think we have finally beat the heat!

We are in Port Charlotte, FL and yesterday it was sunny and 86°. We are facing north east so we are getting sun all morning and most of the afternoon on the curb side of the coach. While the sun was shining outside the inside of the coach was a cool 74° and the A/C was not running constantly!

So here is what we did. I ordered exterior sun shades for the windshield, large dining room window, door, driver and passenger windows. Putting shades on the exterior really does make a big difference vs. the interior sun shades.

I ordered them from a company in Winter Haven, FL. Prompt RVSunScreen and am very happy with the price and the product!

RV Sunscreen | No More Snaps, Drilling or Climbing

I also ordered a custom awning shade for my Carefree eclipse power awning which also has helped make a big difference when using the patio. The shade is made for the electric Carefree awning. I ordered a 17' shade with a 10' drop and it is ideal for our awning. It is designed with a zipper at the 6' up from the ground point. The remaining 4' of shade rolls up with the awning. In cases of severe wind or rain you can have the awning rolled up in about 15 seconds. Just unzip the lower portion and roll up the awning.

Here are some pictures of the new shades.

Lol if I didn't live in the "balmy"midwest that counter would be moving up!
We've got about one month before the weather will cooperate!
