Aha! The old schmutz between the glass trick.

You'll find a lot of discussion if you use the Find feature.

Yes you have a failed seal between the glass and moisture has gotten in. I have several windows on my coach where this has happened. Very expensive to replace the glass so I am just putting up with the less than optimal visibility.

In our ongoing attempt to solve this "fogged double-pane window" problem we have recently been in contact with SE-GI who made the windows for Western RV. They refuse to honor the warantee since they "only worked through the RV manufacturer for warrantee issues" and of course Western is in bankruptcy so they are off the hook as far as they are concerned.

They did offer to send us new windows at our expense (the big passenger side picture window is $1200 plus shipping) but with no guarantee and no returns allowed. Since some on the forum have noted that replacement windows did not fit, we declined their offer.

We did find a site online that sells instructions for making an inexpensive device that allows you to drill small holes in the window seals and wash/dry the fogging out of the space between the glass. Will report back if this works (once I get the guts to actually attempt it).

snug- I heard from a contractor that this is a service available from some window outfits. Don't know if they are prepared to do safety glass. Might call around & check before trying it yourself.
