Backpacker Posted January 26, 2016 Report Share Posted January 26, 2016 I have owned my new Bounder for 10 days and the most unnerving driving issue I have is glare and window reflections impeding visibility as follows: I was backing my 34' Fleetwood Bounder into a driveway in a tree covered residential neighborhood yesterday afternoon and, with the passenger side window reflecting the image of a car parked across the street on the driver side and a high contrast of light and dark shadows from the afternoon sun and tree cover, it was impossible to see my backward progress into the driveway through either my passenger side mirror or camera. I had to exit the vehicle twice to make sure I was properly positioned. Fortunately, this was a residential neighborhood and I did not have traffic waiting on me, the driver, to stop the RV, exit the door to observe my progress, jump back in, and continue backing up, twice. Earlier that afternoon I was driving on a freeway with clear skies and the volume of light coming through the front windshield made it very difficult to see my speedometer. In addition, the contrast between bright sunlight on the road and the shadow of my RV made the side mirror cameras so useless that I could only rely the side mirrors. I'm not complaining; just looking for solutions. I love my RV and plan on full time travel in the US and Canadian west. Is there a window application I can apply to the inside of the passenger window so that reflections off of it do not impede my view of the passenger side mirror? Is there something I can do to reduce the amount of light flowing through the windshield so that I can see my speedometer without a flashlight? Thanks for any advice to a newbie.
