I have an 05 Country Coach with 4 and counting windows losing their seal and fogging up. The driver's side window alone is $1000.00 to replace and I know that it will fog up again in 2-3 years. Anyone else having this problem? I would like to see a class action solution eventually...

OB Bear, sory to hear of the fogged up window issue. I am supprised as under normal conditions they last a long time. Mine are 9 years old and fine. Who is the manufacturer of the window? Have you tried contacting them about replacing them under warranty? Even if you can get them to warrantying the parts only. Changing the windows is not ral hard; you will need a helping hand.
One thing everyone should be careful of is to not put up the foiled bubble wrap material on the inside. It can reflect the heat right back into the space between the panes and cause premature seal breakdowns.

OB Bear, I'm betting your windows were probably mfg by SE-GI.

Here's the website of some folks who do a great job of repair and/or replacement of dual pane windows:

http://www.motionwindows.com/

We had the same problem with our windows from SE-GI. Fortunately they replaced all of ours with me paying shipping cost and doing my own installation.

When our cockpit window inner seals wemt bad I called but they no longer stocked that size.

On a trip to WA state we stopped off in Vancouver where Motion windows is located, and had new windows fabricated for our rig at a cost of $1,200.00 which included installation.

They're really nice folks and it's family owned and operated by Tom Kemp and his sons.

Best of luck, Jim

Four windows in 3 years sounds excessive. We had 2 windows in our Beaver fog up, but the coach was built in 1995.

I've also heard good things about the window shop in Vancouver, WA. They quoted us $700 to build a completely new driver's side window.

6 or more months ago there was a discussion on a fix for that problem in Winnibagos. The guy did it himself and saved a bundle. You might do a search and come up with some good info
