    Our reservation for father's day weekend is coming up, we have a 4-spot peninsula for Friday - Tuesday at Park Moabi / Pirates Cove. Been a few years since we did the RV thing at the river, looking forward to it. Now.......Gotta hustle to get the motorhome cleaned up and all the stuff packed up after work this week. Should be fun. Anyone else up this coming weekend?

    I think we should make a "docktagon". All words will be exchanged back at the docktagon.

    If you go to my house say hi to the renters, ask them if I can come grab some ice lol

    Get the stuff at Depot and also grab a role of the tape. It helps cut the temps down inside drastically.

    We’re at Nautical Friday thru Sunday. Got all 3 kids to make it plus my dad and his wife. Should be a great weekend.
    Not sure yet but we may launch at Pirates and cruise up instead of driving the truck up.

    Never heard of this. Install on inside or outside? Is it the reflective style with the silver cover over the bubbles? I’m assuming just to reflect the sun, or does it make that much difference insulating as well?

    I bought 2 roles of this stuff from Home Depot and cut pieces out to fit all of my windows along with the windshield and it makes a big difference. Install inside- I cut mine pretty close to the size of the windows so they stay in place pretty well but the mini blinds also help keep it in place.

    https://www.homedepot.com/p/Reflect...n-Roll-with-Staple-Tab-Edge-ST16025/100012574

    Tape-https://www.homedepot.com/p/Reflect...PIPHorizontal2_rr-_-100012574-_-100318556-_-N

    These also make a big difference in the vents (kitchen and bathroom)- https://www.homedepot.com/p/Camco-Vent-Insulator-45192/205808407?cm_mmc=Shopping|G|Base|All-Products|All|All|PLA|71700000014585962|58700001236285396|92700010802552406&gclid=CjwKEAjw__fnBRCNpvH8iqy4xl4SJAC4XERPebDczwpfSBbyLWHX9yXTxlGqJ2IKMI6gmch5x67V9hoCC3Tw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    We have a mesh screen on outside of windshield and drivers side window. Then reflectix inside plus pull down shades. It really makes a difference if sun is directly on your windows

    We’ll be there. Staying in a willow Valley. We’ll cruise down river and hang out at Pirates for a bit, then probably head over to Topoc for lunch and hangout before we head back up river.

    My motorhome came with those mesh screens and I had no idea they helped with the heat. I am going to put them on this weekend.

    They keep the glass from transferring heat into coach. The screen then the bubble wrap really cuts down the temp up front in the coach.

    But the silver reflective wrap on the windows helps keep the heat out same for the vents piece of foam helps insulate too

    Yeah, we talked about it and considered doing Springs, but by the time we finish, it would be tough to get a good spot at 3 Dunes. Just going to feed kids ahead of time.

    I was thinking by time I pull into 3 dunes on Sunday afternoon everyone should be packing up to go home, but schools may be out, peeps may hang longer than I first thought (Monday and Tuesday might look slightly different this week).

    Wife prefers it. (To be honest that’s kinda the end of my input). Earlier on the water and means we’ll put in a decent day on the water Sunday also.
