We have had our Magna Shades since day one with our legacy and we love them and make a huge difference in cooling the coach.

For the installation just make sure your windows are clean and use rubbing alcohol or solution they give you. On the front window when you do your routine cleanings don't use any rejex or slippery waxes around the perimeter because your magnets will slide on the outside, the front cover is pretty heavy.

Enjoy, they fit perfect and work very well. Aside from the cooling they provide it is nice to leave the interior mcd front blackout shades up in the daytime and have a nice panoramic view looking out and still have the privacy since you can't see in through them.

Since our awnings don't exactly create a lot of shade regardless of the direction the coach faces I decided to order a shade pro awning shade. I went with black and 15 ft length with a 9 ft drop to stake it out at a angle away from coach. Our awnings are 17ft arm to arm with 16ft 2" of fabric so 15 ft is the size needed.

Should create a much bigger shaded patio area. I'll get some pics posted when I install it.

Another item we added a while back that should come std with the coach is a carefree awning cover. It is a black vinyl cover that the awning rolls up into to protect from tree branches and other items tearing awning. Makes awning look better as well when rolled up.

psw757,
Great idea for a thread. It is an excellent place to get ideas of what is possible. There are so many upgrades mentioned here that maybe it is time for some threads on specific upgrades with details. For example; what, when, where, why, and how of installing an onboard vacuum cleaner. Of course photos will be needed as it never happened if not photographed.


Kind of like post #7 here Front facing camera

Do you have photos of it installed and pricing?

I just got a quote for the Magne Shade. It is still on my list of to do, but at $516.00 plus shipping it is down low on the list.

I'm not saying it is not worth the $516. It might be.

PSW757, I would also appreciate info on your awning cover. I am a bit surprised it didn't come with one. My Magna shades arrived today so hopefully to get them installed this week.
