I have a 2016 416 and last year in TX I couldn't get the temp below 90. I didn't k ow about this forum and just googled stuff. The first thing I came across was solar screen and some suction cups designed for attaching screen. I had tried the reflextix but felt like I was living in a baked potato.

I went to Home Depot and bought some screen that blocks 90%uv cut 4ftx4ft sections and covered every window I had. My temp dropped about 8degrees. Click image for larger version

I wanted it on the outside to stop the heat before coming in.

Still does the trick. Then, I started reading about the vents and lousy job keystone does and checked mine

So I got that all cleaned up and pulled off all the vents. The tape was sticking up on almost every vent ...cleaned that up. By this time I'm holdin 79deg. The back a/c unit in the garage had the gray vent fabric folded up like an envelope and stapled which would drag against the cold air coming down. Got that cleaned up.

I have 4 beds on hydraulics in the back that blocks 2 vents so tonight I did a little mod. One vent is about 18in from the edge so I took vent material taped it to a vent and made it long enough to hang over the edge. I made it extra long to play around with moving to different edges. I'm interested to see if it helps.Click image for larger version

Just finished my check of ac vents. 3 no tape at all, two misdrilled holes big enough I could fit my fist into.

I'd laugh but I know you're serious. Look what I found to the right of the black rod when I pulled away the tape...about a 4"x5" gap. I bought some foam backend duct insulation to seal it. Click image for larger version
