Monty,
Thanks for the feedback. We are headed to Vancouver on Thursday anyway so I will swing by and visit with them. And, if the pass is OK, I think I will even bring the trailer along to get a better estimate.
Steve

We had the foged windows. We called Dave Root and he came out to the camp ground
and fixed 6 windows. Did a great job. We were in La Pine, Or.

I have made a list of locations for window repair and parts.
There are duplicates in some cases. I just add them as they pop up. Have not taken the time to edit it to date,something that need to be done.

The RV Glass Experts can now repair or replace your side windows.
Are your RV windows fogged up? Is there an ugly, black seal hanging between the glass panes? Not only are these unsightly, but they can be visibility hazards.
With decades of expertise and two fully-equipped warehouse / service locations in Phoenix, Arizona and Eugene, Oregon, RV Glass Solutions is your one-stop resource for replacement and repair of defective side windows.
Though we can source replacement windows from virtually any manufacturer, purchasing a new window may not always be your best option! In many cases, repair of your existing windows will provide you a faster, more durable, and significantly less-expensive solution, than an OEM or aftermarket replacement.
We guaranty all window repairs against future leaks and creepy seal for two full years. And, in most cases, we can have your coach back on the road within 24 hours.
RV Glass Solutions offers side window repair and replacement in the following locations.

We are currently in the lot of Suncoast Designs in Hudson, Fl having 3 windows repaired. They have room for 18 RVs with water and 50 amp electric. Also, WI-FI.

A walk around the neighborhood notes all 18 spots are filled and 52 windows are out being repaired. All of us should be out in two days. The windows look very good installed.

They start working at 6:30 a.m. and are very efficient in removing and installing the windows. My 3 windows we out in less than 30 minutes.

One Monaco high end MH has 6 windows being done, but otherwise it is two to three per RV. And, no one brand except See-Ya (3) has more than two.

Thought I would pass it on for general information.

I had Dave Root do the windows in my Providence a while back. After watching Dave and his helper spend all day doing that job, all I can say is it ain't no job for a lazy old goat like me. I wasn't the least bit tired after watching them. Dave did very good work at a reasonable price.

As they say "the proof is in the pudding!" The redone windows look good but how will they look two or three years from now? Nothing against Mister Root--appears to be a fine fellow. But you really have to see/compare what Dave does out the back of his trailer Vs watching the process done in a factory setting, ie, with a clean room and sealing machines that control and condition the air sealed between the panes and that uniformally heat/compress the panes as they go thru the process. Cost is about the same but I am incline to go with the "factory" process--my two cents....

We had Dave Root fix seven windows (driver's and passenger side windows and one behind the sofa) at the DRR in Quartzsite in January. There was no water visable between the glass, but all windows were tinted blue between the glass. We were impressed with his attention to detail.
Yes, Bend OR is normally where he can be found.

I will be very interested in what answers you get.
We were wondering (ours are all in the movable portion of the window - the slider side) if we couldn't just lift the affected portion of the window out and take it to just any window shop?
Hi Mo Rv, It is strange that the slide window went bad. We have a 99 Alpine that has gone bad EXCEPT for the slide window. We replaced the other 2 peices in the left side of the cockpit this past fall. $1000. parts and labor, $880 was glass. This is ridiculus. The place someone mentioned inArkansas is" RV Fog Doctor", Searcy, Ark. That is on hiway 67 about 100 miles southwest of Poplar Bluff, Mo. I would think that slide window would come out fairly easy. I am well aquainted in your area, but cannot think of a good shop in Warren or St Charles Co. Maybe St Louis. best wishes, old trucker

Of note, in reading the latest FMCA magazine, SeGi windows and Newell have enterented into an agreenment for a recall, as certian windows will fail and they have agreed to replace them. So, maybe a class action suit against SeGI, since it seems they are still in business, and many of us are getting stiffed. To date, we have spent close to 2000 dollars in fixing ours. Oh, heck, it's most likly to old, but the coaches in question are 2005-2009 Newells, so maybe not.
