Dual Pane Windows Separating

Our 2014 Tuscany XTE has dual pane windows. Today doing a walkaround before hitting the road for the day I noticed the outside panes on 2 windows was separating.

Does anyone know the fix for this? The coach is still under warranty but we are in the last few days of a trip and we don't want to cut it short to go to the dealer if we don't have to.

Thanks

Separating how? Just moisture getting in-between, or can you physically see separation? Moisture doesn't need an immediate fix, but a physical separation sounds to me like a serious and immediate problem. How can the panes separate if the window frame is intact?

In any case, the window must be removed and the glass either replaced or repaired. Repair means rebond the panes together and requires a glass professional with the skills to clean, reseal and reassemble the window. Shops that "de-fog" RV windows can do that.

If you are still under warranty I would not try to do anything and let manufacturer fix it.

Are you talking about dual panes with a gap between them or laminated glass with a plastic separator between two panes of glass?

A picture would certainly be much more help. Almost everyone has a cameraphone or ipad these days and it just takes a minute to post once you learn how.


As Gary said, if the structure of the frame is coming apart you need to take care of it sooner than later.

If the glass panels are frameless then yes, you should do something like sealing the edges together with a strong tape until you can get it into the dealer. If the glass in in a frame, I can't imagine how you can even tell they are separating. Regardless, it sounds as if the seals are defective and should be fixed under warranty.

Good point about the new frameless windows. If they are visibly separating, I would temporarily hold them together with a heavy duty, weatherproof tape.

I'll tape them securely before we leave this park. Here's a very short video showing the condition. We are still under warranty.
