Bhuppert, can you advise how this is working out? Condensation, Rattle..anything. My RV is done learning new tricks and is on maintenance support...so a clear single window is may be better that fogged double.

Fogged windows

I found this site that gives a complete "how to" regarding fogged windows. It is Chaos Leaves Town. Sounds strange, but this guy is great! He is a full-timer who is very knowledgeable about RV stuff. If you are at all handy with tools, this is the way to go. I am about to clear one of my windows.

Good information. The kit he sells appears to be a good solution. I have only one window to do now; but, the kit will repair five. You never know when the next window will decide to become a problem.

4 days before the dealer ship went under and as far as SE-GI windows go they carry a 30 day warranty

I think you misunderstood, I meant has anyone turned in a claim for fogged windows on a extended warranty claim. May be worth pursuing I'm going to give mine a call.

I got in touch with the company and they replaced several under warranty but then said they wouldn't replace any more. I did it myself and it can be done on a nice sunny day and with patience. Then I heard about Hudson, Florida. Check out the website of Suncoast Designers, Inc. What a place. You drive in and have your own site with full hook-ups, and wifi. The next morning they wake you up around5:30 maybe 6:00 when all the workers come out and take the windows out of your coach and cover with cardboard. They waltz them into the building where they have an disassembling crew, then on to the cleaning stations, (if they are etched they have to replace the glass), then they go for lunch and you can take a tour of the whole place. After lunch they start to re-assemble, then bring the windows out and start putting them back into the coaches. By 4:00 o'clock at night they are all back in and the workers are on their way home. I had my Passenger side window done of my Winnebago Adventurer done with the glass replaced (because it was etched) for 294.68 and out the door.
It's an amazing place and I would go back in a heartbeat. They are so organized and it was the easiest and enjoyable repair to my coach I have ever experienced. You need to call for an appointment. I got lucky and they squeezed me in within 4 days because I was in Hudson and leaving but mostly they need more time than that to get you in.

Was wondering if having windows tinted would hide the fogged appearance , when I have my screens on side window you can't notice it.

You'd have to think it would plus I like the look of "tinted" windows from the outside but I'd rather be able to look out clear windows a lot of the times when I'm inside.

I have MCD shades and keep the black sunlight screens down most of the time and it has the same effect as tinted window but when I put them up I have the fogged view

There are an awful lot of people with these bad windows (including myself). What does it take to win a class action lawsuit? Does anyone think there is probably cause? My 2008 Fleetwood company is out of business but it sounds like the window company is not.

First thing would be for the window company to still be in business and I think they are gone now!!

That would be a wrong assumption. Se-Gi Manufacturing made the windows. They are still alive a kicking. I pass by their warehouse in Norco CA on a regular basis.

Sorry I missed your post. Works great and is super easy to cut the seal and separate the panes. I do not know why everyone does not do it that way. Just installed glass garage doors in a service area in MN and the r value between single and double pane was so little and the chance of failure so great that I installed single pane in them. Have been satisfied with those as well.
