Fogged window instruction

I had inquired earlier for direction for resealing my dual pane windows. I received my materials from d&k but still had no direction other then Utube. The spacer has a foil on one side and a rubber material on the other. I thought I had seen the reflective foil on the inside of other dual pane windows so that is how I did the two windows. I have since looked at the other windows that need attention and noticed the foil has not on the inside but in the middle of the outside sealant and the rubber material on the spacer. Any guidance would be appreciated before I continue with the other glass panels

I had two of them done at the RV show in Quartzsite, AZ. They are great and reasonable. If you are interested, email me and I will get the data from my RV which is in storage.

Well, I guess one of us is wrong as when I did my windows last year I put the foil on the outside.

My though was that the foil would act as a separation and the rubber material is what contained the absorbent and should be on the inside.

I have had two windows repair at two different places and the foil is to the outside. The window I repaired I also put the foil to the outside.

I did two panes in the same window with the foil inside. I hope they hold up otherwise we will be doing them again. Really no a big deal. I will be doing the driver side next but need to acquire some more caulk. I will be putting the foil out next time. I did etch the glass for better adhesion. This process is not that hard of a task to complete. I did learn to put some kind of bump stop on the table to butt the glass up against to align the two panes when mating them.

fogged windows

Mark,
Iím glad your fogged window project is going well. As you remarked, this is not to difficult a project. I hot glued wood stop blocks to my work surface to align both panes of glass as well. The single most time consuming part of the job is removing window pulls on sliding windows. I donít know if you have done any sliding windows yet.
Iím going to tackle my largest window next to my dining table as soon as we get back from Arkansas, before the Texas heat gets to oppressive.

Ron, I totally agree with you regarding removal of the sliding window pulls. I fought and fought with mine.. finally took a propane torch to it and got it off. Just used some of the sealant I had used on the outside of the windows to put it back on. I have the pax door window to do next .. at least it is smaller, only one pannel and no slide!
