Installing MCD shades

Huggins - shade 4

We never liked the pleated shades much as they were a pain to adjust, an awful dust catcher and quite difficult to clean. Long story short, we measured several times and ordered MCD American Solo night shades.

In the summer months, the air conditioner cools it well, but the inside temperature gets too hot before the AC kicks on again. It’s more noticeable at night when I am trying to sleep. Is there a method to maintain a more even temperature?

The park management said the sites are daisy-chained together. This doesn’t mean much to me other than I know I don’t have 50 amps dedicated to my site.

My questions are, how do I restore the shine to these fiberglass components and then better protect them from UV damage in the future?

The summer sun is punishing hot. Two years ago, the temperature was in the three digits for more than eight weeks. Last year, the wind was over 80 miles an hour on one occasion. What steps can we take to preserve our fifth wheel’s interior and exterior?
