a month ago we were at a cg and for three days the ac never could keep up,
started looking for what I could do to help it,....... hoping this helps and I'm very close to pulling the cover again, insulating the underside with the reflectix and also painting the outside white over the black plastic,.... that black cover has to be like a furnace up there in 95 deg. sun,.......

Black radiates heat better than white and white reflects heat better than black. So you might want to keep the back half (condenser) of the cover black and paint the front half (evaporator) white.

The condenser will tend to be hotter than outside air (even at 100 deg F) so you want it to radiate. The evaporator will be cooler than outside air, so you want to reflect the outside heat (sun) off of it.

Of course, a black and white cover may not meet the approval of the fashion police, though.

Pretty happy with the modification to the skylights. I think the chain is a little long. It will not be hanging there either

The glass in my cabinets were installed by Forest River using some kind of hot glue. Overtime, the glue has let go. I lost one door glass on the entertainment center. It broke and I had to replace it and the door on the other side with smoked glass as the ornamental glass is no longer available.

Today, I removed the hot glue and glass from all my upper cabinets as they were ready to fall out. Used some clear silicone and redid them all.

Hot glue.
