Beat the heat

In an attempt to reduce the heat in the coach I insulated the sky light in the shower. I removed the cover inside the shower (8 screws) insulated the top of the cover with thin reflective insulation and duct tape then reinstalled it, took 30 min. It is easily removed in cooler weather if desired. This sure made a huge difference in the bath room that sky light is like a green house.

Great idea. Some have talked about painting the outside with a white plastic paint. I bet your will work great. I might miss the light.

I painted my skylight and tops of the Ac covers with plasti dip paint. It was a very noticeable difference. If you don't like it or want a change you literally peel it off. Really easy to apply and remove. With that said I may add the bubble wrap as well for the hot beach days. Good idea.

Installed a reinforced screen door bar yesterday. Makes a noticeable difference when you go to close the door!

Sounds interesting.

Where did you get the bar for the screen door?

We had this when we owned a 5th wheel (with their cheep-o screen doors it was a must). When we were at the FROG Rally this August, I saw that FROG Bob had installed one on his Berk, so I copy-catted him

We got our at Amazon - for $12 you can't beat it!

Another Day, Another Mod.


This shower head is light years ahead of the Oxygenics I had installed in our 5th wheel.


Even though the shower head in our Berk was not bad, this shower head probably doubled the water pressure!
