Well, I had two panes, on the drivers window, fog within days of each other. I don't believe in co-incidences.

I had the rig in storage with the curtains drawn. The drivers window was facing the afternoon sun. My guess is trapped heat, from the sun and curtains, caused the problem.

I"ve read the other posts about fogged windows. Who is this inept, incompetent company that manufactured our windows. The build quality on my windows was very poor! They also seem to have a real "attitude" problem, from what other posts say. Maybe they'll go the way of the rest of the RV industry.

Does anyone know of a West coast repair shop that will do what Suncoast in Florida does?

Sorry to hear about your windows, join the club. I'm getting the material together to clean my own from these guys http://foggeddoublepanewindow.com/

I found a place that will do it in Costa Mesa, CA called "Get The Fog Out", they require you to bring them the windows. The cost is very inexpensive compared to new windows. They quoted me less than $100 for a medium size window. You can look them up on the web, maybe they have a store that closer to you.

I'll let you know how I make out cleaning my windows myself.

Nick,
Did you ever tackle this project using these DIY instructions? If so, how hard was it? Did it work? Has it refogged?

I had an Itasca with Atwood double pane windows that fogged. Winnebago wanted a few hundred dollars for replacements. Attwood sold me the glass for $120 for both of them. The real expense is getting the glass out of the coach. If you're going through that effort, wouldn't it make more sense to replace them?

I tackled the DIY project with the instructions from foggeddoublepane windows.com and it worked. After several days of somewhat messy and frustrating work I had clear windows again. I consider it a fairly difficult DIY job - so much so that I only used it on the big picture windows that we look through all the time. Also, you have to have access to the edge of the glass (which only some of the windows have) in order to do the project.
They do re-fog every 6 months or so, but it is fairly easy and quick to re-dry the space between the panes using the previously drilled holes and the pump/dryer setup you construct for the project.

Ken and Nancy,

You can contact Dave Root who did my PS window. www.daverootrvglassrepair.com


Dave does an outstanding job and is not very expensive. No messing around with drilling and cleaning fluids--he re-builds the entire window.
