hand me those shades, man!

After wondering why I had still had mine-blinds ... Steve's blinds made me three. They hold the Reflectix in place better and are easier to manage and of course, look better. The only question is why I took me so long to change them out? ... maybe it was the $140... yep, that was it.

The shades are the same sand/beige color as the factory ones - which are of course over single pane - dark tint windows. If it is extremely hot or cold, and no reason to see out (??), you will find Reflectix in place. The shades are better than the bent white metal mini-blinds that don't really close and really don't block all the sun from entering. I wish I had the dual-pane, but you know what they say about wishing and what you put in each hand prior to slapping them together

My 29hfs garage came with and still have the cheap mini-blinds. The rest of the camper has the nicer folding shades. We don't have too many weekends where the garage is used as a living space, so changing out the mini-blinds has been low on my list of to-dos. (#1 now is PH's cut up table retro fits...)

The shade upgrade wasn't because to others were frayed ... more like they were not well made .... whether or not they should have stayed, weighed on me. But you make a good case for us adding more counter space; there certainly is none to waste.

Th only issued I've had was with the LED strip lights under the awning mounted in the track of the awning fabric. The plastic track that holds the lights has warped for whatever reason and in my opinion were to bright anyway. The location of them draws the bugs to the door also.

I purchased a 15' strip with a self adhesive backing from the internet and shipped to my house for $12. The rest of the materials I found in my trusty shop that the wife accuses of being full of junk.
These are not as bright and I moved the location out to the awning tube which should help the bug issues at the door. The only downside is they have to be plugged/unplugged at the tube after deployment and before retraction.

I found something else to do (surprise, surprise).

I bought a LCI window for "front" door and installed it. $30 plus shipping eBay. I used 3m 08509 automotive bedding / glazing which will not leak, but is messy.
