Made covers for our slide windows and it makes a tremendous difference in keeping the trailer cooler.

herk, it was probably you I got the idea from. Now I gotta go back and add some more. You went even further than I did. Thanks for the pictures man.

All, thanks for the ideas! and are easy to accomplish. I had a HTT before and we used the insulation on the bunk ends. but i am really surprised about insulating the ac as shown in the pictures. I would have thought it would be done already! Considering i live on the MS gulf coast heat is a constant and i definitely will tackle that task!

Decided that while I was covering the ac like Herk did, I would also glue some to the cover. Can't hurt I hope.

Seems like it'd be fine like that. Vents around condensor all open so why not.

OC:

I did the same thing last weekend.

One of our hotter days, the heat about killed me.

When I got done I went in the TT and enjoyed my work.

Previously I had covered the entire area between the discharge chute and the coils with screen wire to keep the mud daubers from making a home on the fan blades like they did on our previous ac. So that had to come off and then go back on. Hopefully everything will help the ac keep running at peak performance.

I broke out the insulation that i had left over from my HTT. it fit in the windows without tape or velcro, cut a little big and it fits inside the frame, easy to put on and take off. I also looked at the ac up top, it had 1/16" thick white foam. I covered it in insulation.
