Nice...guess I need to do mine now since a lot of people are doing this mod!

i was well pleased with the ac in the 2104s mini light i just bought. I think the ac is large for the TT. It has a 15k btu ac. it kept the place cool RV cold this past weekend. It was 103 outside and stayed 75 inside with AC running on Low. The thermostat would even shut off the unit some. I may still add some of the mods to reduce the stress of the Ac.

Having trouble visualizing... When this insulation is cut and 'placed' in window, is it:

1. Behind blinds/shades
2. Visible from interior of RV
3. Visible from exterior of RV

Behind the shades, visible from interior if shades a up and visible from outside. Cut to fit snuggly in the window frame and you don't need Velcro or anything to hold it in.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

I have friends who have spray painted one side black so you can't even notice from outside. I found this pic of my camper on phone, top bunk window has foil insulation (not painted) and you can hardly tell it's there due to tinted windows

Never bothered me to notice the foil, but I'm more after the functionality than looks. Most that see it know why it's there. The reflective silver on the bubble insulation reflects the light and heat, which is the purpose to start with.

BigJohnD, my thought exactly. While camping with little or no shade, it would seem that the reflective nature of the panel (on the outside) would create a major glare, much like a mirror in the sun. For some reason, we have very little tinting in our windows, so this glare would be blinding.
