It seems as though I can't beat the battle of having the inside of my windshield get dirty every week or so. I'm looking for some help/advice on a product I can use or some sort of technique to try and keep it clean longer.

The norm for me is to wake up in the morning and head off to work, but before doing so, my truck windows have condensation built up on them. This also includes a slight build up on the inside of the windshield as well.

If you ask me, I think GM made a huge problem for the NNBS guys by not incorporating the cabin filter into these trucks and this is leading to the windshield being dirty.

I commute 72 miles a day in my truck (which includes an underwater tunnel) and I usually have the vent duct open to pull from the outside instead of having recirculation on. I know this is also adding to my problem, but I know some people have talked about a mildew type funk if they leave it on recirculation.

Would any of you guys recommend something along the lines of Rain-X Anti Fog? Just looking for something to A) keep the condensation off the windshield/windows in the morning along with possibly helping keeping the film of the interior of the windows.

It could be caused by you smoking, the type of dressing you use on the dash, or a number of other things. My OBS doesnt have a filter and I dont have this issue :shrug:

I did clean my evap core when I replaced my blower fan and that helped alot with the mildew smell I was sometimes getting after cutting off the A/C. IDK if its possible on the NNBS trucks but I had room to spray some APC on the evap core then scrub it wiht a toothbrush, then rinse it off with a water hose....

I dont smoke and I don't use any chemical or any sort to clean the dash off. Usually when I clean the windshield and the mist falls onto the dash, I just wipe it off with a paper towel.

The dash oddly enough stays fairly clean.

my parents van got a weird film on it, not smoke, and they cleaned it with rubbing alcohol and it cleaned it off. Not sure how to prevent it from being dirty. Maybe put your truck on recirc then shutting it off so the cab stays kinda sealed off
