Most motorhomes have plastic headlight lenses that fog over because of sunlight. To help prevent fogging while the coach is in storage, I went to Lowe’s and purchased $2 worth of sunscreen fabric from the garden department. I also bought a package of 3/4-inch disc magnets for $2.50. My wife cut the screening to size and hemmed it on the sewing machine. I now have sunscreen covers for both headlights for less than $5. If Lowe’s doesn’t have the magnets, Home Depot does. Also, if your motorhome has fiberglass or plastic instead of metal, double stick hook-and-loop fastener will do the trick.
