WEATHER PROOFING YOUR RV

Your RV travels are usually based on weather conditions.  But it doesn’t have to be that way.  There are several things you can do that will prevent the weather from deciding when and where your travels take you.  Here are some tips I’ve found to be helpful in my travels.

These tips are good for RV’s, trailers, homes, any building with windows.

Make sure all windows are caulked and sealed with heavy duty caulk, make sure all
window seals and gaskets are in working order, replace if needed.

I’ve used the Sunshield Reflective Window Covering and it works really well in blocking heat and light.

If you are having a severe problem with weather and windows you may want to seal up the windows with a clear 6 mil vapor barrier.  Vapor Barriers are available in several different varieties.  Clear, bubbled, blue, black, etc.. You can use any type that fits your needs and preferences.

Weather Proofing Window Materials

There are several videos available to help you understand how to stop the weather from entering your living area along with possible solutions you may want to try.

I WOULD RECOMMEND USING 6 MIL OR HEAVIER (if you can find it) plastic/visqueen/vapor barrier or bubble wrap.

Staying warm in the winter and cool in the summer inside your RV
