My simple solution to the reflection problem: a single-slat louvre works perfectly
In item #29 of this forum, I posted my simple single-slat louvre solution to the problem, but indicated that I hadn't tested it in the severe situations that gave real problems before.
I can now report that I have successfully tested the solution in a severe lighting situation where I would have had great trouble backing up. This gives me confidence that my solution will always work.
My situation arose because one end of my alley was blocked, so I had to back up 150 feet in my alley with a bright building reflecting onto me from the right front, but trees shading my view behind the left side of the RV. I could see reflections off of the side window beside the area blocked by the louvre. If I had to view the mirror through those reflections, it would have been very bad. But, the louvre kept the reflections off of the part of the window through which I viewed my mirror.
