    In this video, I install several more EZ Snap exterior window shades. This time on the sunny passenger side of the RV. Outside window shades block heat and keep the RV cooler in summer plus enhance our privacy.

    We just bought some for a window shade, based on your review, and it works great. We decided to use the extra to fashion a cover for the pin-box. It seems we always have birds wanting to nest in it and realized the EZ Snap would work great for that!

    So, Ray, thanks for the great ideas and keep them coming! We love watching your reviews and repairs.

    You're welcome. :) That's a good idea! I haven't had too many birds in the fiver pin box but one time when boondocked in a friend's vineyard, some house finches managed to build a nice one in a matter of a day or so. Busy little birds.
    I'm planning to use some extra I have to add a shade to our bathroom skylight for the summer heat.

    Quick tip for an easy way to roll up and keep an EZ Snap window shade in place using the larger size Wrap It Velcro Straps.

    it pats to read the comments!, I was wondering if that material would work over the skylight in the shower area, look forward to seeing the results when you do it.
    Thanks for another informative video.

    Yes added a little piece, and it works well https://youtu.be/fb39_7grw7c?t=195
    I use it for the summer heat, then take it off when we travel.

    While here in the Tetons the temps have cause the slide-out wall to get very warm and heat up the interior as we all know they do. Well its not the pretties but it gets the job done. Been wind testing already with some 40 plus winds.

    Great product. I have a rear window configuration like yours and the Texas sun can overwhelm the ac. This product helps. I have one suggestion and an observation. The suggestion is to put a dab of superglue on the pen where the two piece snap fastens together on the screen. The observation is that I’ve driven over 7,000 miles with my rear screen attached and never has a snap come lose. I have successfully driven with the side screens attached but not sure I want to make a habit of it.

    Hi Ray - We are about to order these for our 5er, and need your perspective. I thought you mentioned in one of your videos that you would not space snaps as close if you had to do it again? I re-watched but did not hear you say this so probably just more senility creeping into my head. Would you use the same 5 inch spacing again? I like the roll up option you came up with.

    Hi Rush and Lola - Did you use the EZ Shade snaps to attach this to your wall?
  • Ray

    Yes, I would not space so closely. Every 10 inches seems to be plenty. At first, I followed their recommendation for windy environments but have never needed so many attached. So when added more shades I went to about 10" spacing and it's been fine. But summers here on the BC coast aren't particularly windy. 30 MPH is about the max we see.

    Thanks for the reply Ray. I will go with your recommendation on the corners as well. This fabric looks very similar to the MCD blinds are 5er came with, I will be interested to compare them.

    Hello - Wondering how the pin box cover worked out for you? Any photos? Thanks!

    Good morning Bill. We installed the EZ snaps before with the fabric. The product works great. We installed the snaps ever 10” as ever few seemed to be an overkill.

    So sorry for not getting back sooner. Haven't been on here lately. I used C clamps at the top and rocks to hold it down to ground .Has been a blessing this season. Wind moves the bottom around when winds are 25 plus. I just adjust it after the winds die. We just watched a guy on you tube who bought the sun screen at Harbor Frieght and use some hooks he bought on Amazon.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qV0jOhJXr7o&t=32s Like his idea and plan on hitting HF when we set back up in Florida.
