Yes, I just did mine last March - in fact all 12 or 13 windows. Some were not frameless but the big ones were. Suncoast Designers in Florida with 10 year warranty - full first year, prorated thereafter.

[QUOTE=Alan Wilson;2617382]If it's that bad you're probably right. Buy new glass for it. You can remove the frame yourself and install it when done just be sure you have plastic to cover the opening.

Just got my passenger and drivers windows repaired at RV Fog Dr in Searcy, AR. I tried it myself but the first time it was out there was humidity between the panes.

My glass was pretty well etched and needed to be replaced. Couldn't replace it because the shapes are all unique and the glass itself is tempered. RV Fog Dr had some glass in stock that e used. If he didn't have any in stock he would have it made and tempered. Then reassemble and install.

Great people to work with.

fogged windows

Early this spring I search the forums on what to do about fogged windows in my coach. I contacted a place in Florida, and they wanted over $3500 to repair all 9 windows. It just did not seem right to me. I contacted Haulmark, the manufacturer of my coach, and they said they were out of warranty. This coach is 9 years old. I then contacted manufacturer of windows. They replaced all windows at no charge. I had to pay Haulmark to have them installed to honor warranty. I pays to be persistent

Happy travels
Bill

I have purchased everything I need to repair my fogged windows. Now all I need is to work up the courage to begin the work when the rain stops and I get a few sunny days in a row. From reading all the posts and instructions written here it sounds like it should be a straight forward and simple job, but whenever I think something is going to be simple it turns into a job from H_LL. We'll see, gonna start soon, wish me luck.

Bummer! I bought enough to repair several windows only to discover that mine had been let go too long. All was not lost as I got one of the three repaired myself. It isn't hard but it takes arms like Popeye and very good caulking gun. If I had very many to do I would invest in one that air powered or electrically driven. Post pictures and good luck!

I did the window in the door of our pusher this winter. Looked great until last week when it fogged again. Darn it! Not sure why the seal would fail so quickly.

Looks like good weather today so today is the day to start the repair process. Let the fun begin. We'll see how long this process takes.

Well, I disassembled the passenger side, co-pilot window, cleaned, sealed, and reassembled. I think I installed the spacer on the window backwards. The spacer came with a foil side (not removable) and a black rubber side along with the two sticky sides which stick to the windows. Well I put the foil side so that it would be facing the inside of the window rather than facing towards the outside of the window which would be against and mostly be hidden with the black sealant. You might only then see a thin foil line where the foil and the sealant join together. The way I did it means that when you look thru the window you see the foil side of the spacer in the window air space. I reinstalled the window assembly back into the coach to see what it would look like and I think it sucks. I think I would rather look at a black spacer instead.

I started at 8:30 AM this morning and it is now 4:00 PM. I am done for the day. I will disassemble and redo entire window tomorrow. I guess I will call today a practice day.

The good things about today are:

- The windows all cleaned up nicely. They just had a foggy misty film on them.
- They are now clear, clear, clear.
- Worked off lots of calories (squeezing the sealant with caulk gun is hard)
- Learned a lot so tomorrow should be easier (I hope). Hardest part is to ensure windows are as clean as possible before reassembly.
- Took pictures and will post when completed

Fogged Window Repair

I have repaired 5 fogged windows in my 2005 CC motor home.
I got my kit from Dave Root. Dave provides complete DIY instructions.
None of my windows were etched so a good cleaning was all they needed.
My original windows were only sealed with the adhesive window spacer.
Using Dave's system you inset the adhesive window spacer about 1/4"
and fill then the 1/4" inset with a moisture cure polyurethane. I think that
may be the permament solution to the problem we are all looking for.
It's been two years and all my repaired windows are doing great.
I was able to do two windows a day.

Fogged Window Repair

Tom,
You need to get a power caulk gun, available from Home Depot.

I would but I don't have that many windows and can use the exercise.

I posted pictures in my photo album but don't know how to reference them here. I clicked on the video so I guess we'll see what happens.

Well that didn't work so try this:

Search - iRV2.com RV Photo Gallery

Looks like this will somewhat work. At least it will get you to the photos. I don't know how to put them in order, but this will somewhat work for you, just page to page and you will be able to see what the process is like. Going to start over tomorrow and redo this window and then finish the other three that are fogged.
