Side Glass Replacement 03 Seabreeze

I am thinking about replacing the driver and passenger side glass on my 03 Seabreeze. Anyone done this? Where can I get glass. Where to go to get it installed? There is some fogging in the glass. Its not terrible, but I tend to be kind of fussy. We will see how fussy when I find out how much it may cost. I included a photo so you can see the glass layout. Thanks for any input.

I did search for "glass replacement" and didn't see anything relevant. I will look some more. Thanks for the reply. Suncoast Designers sound great, but I am in the Northeast.

I have the driver's side window, two big living area windows, one vertical bath window, and one large bedroom window that have various degree of fogging. What a lousy manufacturer that was--now out of business I understand, and rightfully so.
If/when I decide to bit the bullet, my options appear to be:
1. Go to Arkansas or some other distant place and camp out at a specialty fix-it place. Can't find any local places near summer or winter abodes.
2. Buy new windows at avg. $600 per plus installation.
3. Remove them myself and ship them off to a fix-it place, which in itself will be a big deal.

If you are phisically capable and even remotely mechanically inclined, daverootrvglassrepair.com sells a kit for rebuilding dual pane windows, complete with everthing you need to do the job except for paper towels, screwdriver, caulking gun and PATIENCE. I rebuilt ALL the windows in my 99 Tradewinds with just my wifes help. Just start with the smallest window first (for practice). It really isn't bad at all. To make the work easier, I bought a Ryobi cordless caulking gun from Home Depot.

I'm taking my motorhome in to Redlands Truck and RV on Monday for the same reason. Driver and passenger window fogging. They have a glass man that removes and repairs the window. Fogging in a dual pane window occurs when it loses its seal. It has happened to windows in my house which are Milgard windows. Luckily, Milgard warranties their windows for life and will replace the window pane for free. If you live in the Southern California area, I would recommend contacting Redlands Truck.

Thanks kennersonf. Looks like I'd be all set if I lived in Cali or Fla. But I live in Rhode Island. Anyone know of anyone in this area that performs that kind of work? Not sure if I want to take this project on myself. I will check some youtube videos to see if I can get a handle on it. If you watch the Suncoast video, they won't even let cameras into the room where they reseal the glass. So there must be something to it.

Your windows are most likely made by Hehr. You can contact them for either new window glass or if they know of someone in your area that will repair dual pane windows.

I've been in the Suncoast shop and chatted with the techs as they repaired my windows. I've had 3 windows repaired by them of different occasions. The RV glass shop is a part of a manufacturing facility that makes dual pane windows and sliding glass doors for buildings. They use the same machinery to clean and seal the glass as is done for building windows.
I don't know if they are better than any other place as Suncoast is the only place I've used........and I'm a satisfied customer.
