Fountain RV/Butch Williams

Ok I'm going to put my flame suit on.
When I puschased my coach their was a paid invoice from Fountain Rv for repairing 6 fogged Windows. I have recently noticed something going on on the inside wall and on the exteriour.
After removing the wood work,blinds,valances and desk. Removed trim ring from window and discovered window not in correct position. Removed all the same from the next window along side of it and same thing. Here is a pic showing the light comming in from upper corner of window.




I went onto their website and their is a complaint for the same thing in my time frame of 2013.
After all I have read about Butch on the forum I'm not to sure about him or fountain.
So far two of the six are installed improperly. Going to need to rip the other four apart. To make it even worse the windows are fogged again.

Butch is related to Kevin Waite. Kevin told me Butch is back in the Pacific NW (WA State, if I recall correctly) and to never let Fountain work on my coach.

Wow, so you cut all that off? Thanks for showing.

I have twice used Carrier and Son's in JC for minor things, they did good job, recommended.

Yea I cut out a bit and felt sick doing it I try and do everything myself. I'm going to pop out the two Windows Sunday and center them in their openings. While the Windows are out it will also be easier to re install the plywood. All the plywood I found is about 1.5mm thicker than what is on there now so I'm going to have to come up with something so I have a smooth wall.

Wow Mike, kudos to you for taking on such a huge task. Hope it turns out well for you.

I had my windows done by a fellow from Bend, OR that used to work at Beaver before they were bought by Monaco. He started his own window business to replace the liner between the glass and would travel to the S/W in the winter visiting Yuma, Quartzsite, Phoenix, Tucson etc and service various coaches.

He must have done a good job as no leaks and no "snaking" of the new liners. I think I paid about $2,500 for all my windows.

Best to you....

Yea this sucks. I'm suppose to head out to South Carolina around April 8th.
I really can't find much time to work on it and we have been having rain here and there. I won't be around until Sunday and it looks like it will be sunny and 50* good day to pop out the windows.
