Below is a video i made of reflectix.  It is a common mod in popup’s to help insulate it when using the AC or the Heat.  It took me a couple of hours on a weekend to cut it out to the right size.  I store it under my bunks when traveling and I leave it there if I choose not to put it in when camping.

I try to present what I do…..sometimes funny, sometimes informative……check out my fun with fire video  :tease:  I know other people may do things differently, but I figure for someone who wants to know about a subject they can see it in video.

One of my next videos is going to be how to make coffee.  A friend of my wife’s borrowed my percolator coffee pot.  She couldn’t make coffee so they boiled water and then dropped it down the strainer  :doh:

Thank you for the video! 

I do have a question though.  Regarding condensation inside the camper at night.  Not that we plan on doing any real heavy winter camping. But we have an old popup and do not have electric or battery.  When cutting my reflectix should I cut some off on the side of the window where I’d usually leave the canvas unzipped for that ventilation needed to ward off the condensation?  Or will that be kind of defeating the purpose?

Im no expert on the subject but I would think it would be fine. Most of the windows would be covered by the reflectix. You would still see a big difference in temp.
