As the OFM was walking by the closed door to the Castle, he winced at the strong beam of hot sunlight streaming inside the Castle.  WOW that needs to be stopped outside and not allowed into the Castle.

We used to have a foam sheet that covered the frosted door window but it is not right close by to grab it.  The OFM went to work looking for the already cut to fit foam and, thanks to the Castle being so small, was able to discover its hiding spot. Then a couple of screws were placed in the holes in the window frame.

Next an old shoe string was tied in such a way as to hold the foam in the window but still allow for removal if desired.  The foam fit right in and the string was just right. The heat drop entering the Castle was immediate and large. Now this is an excellent improvement to keep out a bunch of heat.

And that was about all the excitement for today.

 However we do think saving some money and being more comfortable is a good way of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. I replaced mine with this one from Amazon. It wasn't very difficult and I think it's great.

    1. That is a nice looking unit. The two things I noticed is the extremely high price and the lack of insulating ability.

    2. You're correct. I did cringe a little on the price. I like to look out the window though.

    3. You did hit on a VERY important point. Every RV needs to be set up to fit the owners preferences. My Castle is definitely set up to fit me and my lifestyle. And sometimes that costs a bit extra.

  2. Staying comfortable whether warm or cool is always a great way of having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the shade.

    It's about time.
