Tape it off and paint it black like the rest of the windows?
Other plastic stuff has yellowed too. Like the “marine” speakers.

I have also considered replacing the glass with “one way” glass so we can see out.
Thoughts?

LA Awesome works well to brighten up yellowing plastic.

Won’t one way glass darken your interior a bunch?

You can paint it or replace it like I did and got a nice window that you can see out of and is tinted and opens.

I painted the white frames on our last TT with Krylon Fusion. The results were beyond what I could have hoped for. Not only did they look like new, they also stayed that way for 5+ years until I traded it in. There were some small cracks in them that the Fusion filled as well.

You can try wiping the yellow plastic with acetone on a paper towel. Wipe once and toss the paper towel, do not keep rubbing.

Good stuff but do not allow it to get on your paint.

^ What Scott said. Mask off or remove the yellowed pieces and rattle can them the color of choice.
It works well.
