Quick Tips: Silence Your RV Shades

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

Driving a motorhome is a task that requires your full attention and the last thing you want is to be distracted by your window shades while steering 30,000 pounds down the road. In many coaches, the front passenger seat window as well as the driver’s side window and the entry door have a retractable shade, which is great to block the sunlight. When driving, however, they tend to swing back and forth, causing a lot of noise and distractions. If you want to silence your drive time, pick up some hook-and-loop fasteners and attach one side to the window frame and the other to the back of the shade. Then you can place the shade exactly where you want it and secure the shade in place for a nice quite ride.
