Reflection from slide window affects view in driver-side mirror on Berk 34QS
I have often had trouble using the driver-side mirror when backing into a camp spot. I noticed that there is often a bright reflection superimposed over the mirror view that I want.
It took a while to figure this out. The problem happens when I'm backing into a spot with tree cover, so that it is dark. But, the front windshield is facing a wide open, bright sky. My 34QS has "bay windows" on the living room slide, so that when the slide is retracted, one of the windows is right behind the driver's head. So, the light comes in the front windshield, bounces off the slide window and is headed for the driver-side mirror. Often that is more light than I get from the spot beside the RV that I need to see.
I wonder how may other RVs have a similar front-facing LR slide window. They likely have the same problem.
I just bought a black terry cloth bath towel and will mount/drape it on a horizontal stick and hang it from the ceiling behind the driver. I've just got enough room to mount it and not hit it with the slide. It will be removable, using eye screws.
