I was just trying to make sure gray is the correct color for the spacer for Fleetwood years 2006- 2008 on the diesel pushers. When I look between my window panes it's difficult to determine the color, it could be gray or a light black.

The new and improved spacer may not be the same color as the original ... but it's available to us do-it-yourself owners.

Cat,
The original spacer was black. The spacer I used was grey. The manufacturer listed a black replacement part number but it was much more difficult to find and, if I recall, more expensive. On stationary windows you cannot see it. On moving windows you can see it when window is open. It does NOT look out of place however. I knowingly choose to use the grey, and no regrets. ESPECIALLY when you consider I bought everything (2 packages of spacer, 4 tubes of spacer sealant, the sealant application tool and the butyl tape for well under $200.

Two More

The butyl pumping can get a little rough on large windows. I bought a pneumatic caulking gun...works great!
If you have trouble getting the frame tight around the panes during reassembly, run a strap around the frame after the glass is partially in. Loosen the strap enough to get a lever in, then tighten like a tourniquet. It applies a nice slow even pressure all around the frame and beats(!) using a mallet.

I have full glass coverage with Progressive insurance. Will they cover the repairs to my fogged windows?

Don't think I wasn't dreaming of a pneumatic caulking gun while doing this job. If I tried to due the entire coach in one day my forearms would have failed. Not just the caulking, but the utility knife to separate the panes.

Great ideas for sure.

How do you get the stationary glass to slide out, without tearing up the rubber seal that wraps around it ?

Depends on window location and number of glass sections.

If it's the common 2 section (1 fixed and 1 slider), you need to find the "split" (or seam) in the frame (it's visible and usually has black sealer on it). From the area of the frame that is normally not visible (hidden by wall), find the screws (again covered in black sealer), remove the screws and the small backer plate. The frame can now be split at the seam (open it about 1 inch or so) and the glass can be removed.

Look at the 3rd picture in #31 in this thread.

It is a 2 section window. I have taken it apart. Slider glass is out and crossbar is out. But the stationary glass has a rubber seal that goes all the way around the glass and when you try to slide the glass out, the rubber gasket doesnt slide with the glass.

It's just stuck ... try some silicone spray. The seal as little ribs that grip the frame. Try pulling the glass back (put tension on it) and gently pry the seal away from the frame (small screwdriver.).

Thanks, i tried silicone, soap and spit. Nothing would soak between the seal and the frame. So i cut the seal where it was origionally connected together and the pushed the ends in the track and the glass slid right out. So when i go bacl together with it i will need to bond the two ends of the seal back together.
